Quantum Dynamics & Control

Division Prof. Dr. Thomas Pfeifer

"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.
