“Designed Quantum States of Matter”

PTB-News 2.2017

Within the scope of the Collaborative Research Centre “Designed Quantum States of Matter” (DQ-Mat), with approx. 10 million euros of funding provided by the DFG, researchers from Leibniz University Hannover, from the Center of Applied Space Technology and Microgravity (ZARM) in Bremen and from PTB in Braunschweig have been collaborating to exploit special quantum-mechanical properties of many-particle systems for metrology. It is planned to improve, among other things, the resolution and the accuracy of atom interferometers and clocks, and to use these for fundamental physics tests. (P. O.
