Atomic Hydrogen Lattice Clock
Hydrogen is the simplest of all atoms and allows to compute its energy levels from first principles.
Our labs at MPQ operate the only cryogenic atomic hydrogen beam worldwide. more...
Hydrogen Spectroscopy Project
We work on precision spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen to test fundamental physics and extract physical constants on a very high level of accuracy.
We offer exciting research possibilities using the latest technologies and are looking for excellent and highly motivated students to join our team. more...
Current projects are:
Master thesis project: Laser spectroscopy of atomic deuterium
The 2S-6P transition measurement in deuterium allows for determination of the deuteron radius and further tests of quantum electrodynamics. We are looking for a master student for the deuterium spectroscopy experiment who is interested in working with a typical atomic physics toolkit, including optics, lasers, fibers and electronics. ...more
XUV Frequency Comb Project
We aim to perform high precision spectroscopy of He+ ions.
Towards this goal we work on the XUV Frequency Comb generation
in this project. We are looking for committed students of
physics, who want to support our team as work students,
Master students or PhD students.
Current projects are:
Bachelor project: Devlopment of low-noise diode lasers.
We offer a project for a Bachelor or Intern student. The goal of this project is to develop a low-noise diode laser system that is suitable for high precision spectroscopy experiments... more

Ion trap Project
Current projects are: a master project in precision laser spectroscopy with trapped ions to an interested student, who is wiling to invest a significant effort. The purpose of this experiment is to open a new route for testing quantum electrodynamics by comparing experimental results with theoretical calculations.
Most of the required hardware and many years of experience in this field exists at the Max-Planck institute of quantum optics at Garching. We have an excellent research environment with services and infrastructure support that can considerable speed up experimental work.
We aim to perform high precision spectroscopy of He+ ions. Towards this goal we work on the ion trap development in this project. We are looking for committed students of physics, who want to support our team as work students, Master students or PhD students.
Real-time dual-frequency-comb Project
For our Fourier-transform spectroscopy group, being part of the MPQ's Laser Spectroscopy Division in Garching, we are looking for a motivated Master student who would like to engage in the flourishing field of dual-frequency-comb spectroscopy (DCS).
Quantum Physics, Quantum Information and Communication
We always have interesting bachelor, diploma or master theses, doctoral theses and student assistant jobs in the field of quantum optics, atomic physics and quantum information. more...
