"Where motion comes to life”
Motion plays a pivotal role in life, the universe, and everything.
- Why do things start to move?
- How fast are the smallest movements?
- When does quantum motion turn classically visible?
- In what way can we steer movements?
- What is time?
In our division's → research we use “fast” bright light and multi-dimensional measurement techniques to illuminate these and further questions evolving around the dynamical quantum world.
Optical atomic clocks are the most accurate measuring instruments ever built and are becoming key tools for basic and applied research, for example to…
