Visit by Prof. Dan Stamper-Kurn

Prof. Stamper-Kurn arrived in Munich in January 2018, where he is pleased to be hosted by the Bloch group and is honored to be a Distinguished Fellow of the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics.

Dan Stamper-Kurn is Professor of Physics at the University of California and a Faculty Scientist at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, both in California, USA. He is an experimentalist who uses ultracold atomic gases to explore fundamental phenomena in condensed-matter physics, atomic physics, and quantum optics. Prof. Stamper-Kurn also chairs the Science Definition Team of the Bose-Einstein Condensation Cold Atom Laboratory (BECCAL), a joint mission of the German (DLR) and American (NASA) space agencies that aims to operate a quantum gas experiment aboard the International Space Station.
