Learn how light works at the most fundamental level: photon by photon, interacting with one atom at a time!
Simon Fölling is a senior scientist at the Max-Planck-Institute of Quantum Optics, Garching and the Ludwig-Maximilians University (LMU) in Munich. He obtained his PhD in physics from Mainz university, Germany, where he worked with utracold bosons in optical lattices. From 2007-2009 he was a postdoc at the Center for Ultracold Atoms at Harvard University. In this project, he worked to construct a quantum gas microscope for observing individual atoms in quantum gases. Since 2009/10 he works in Munich, with his lab now focusing on ultracold fermions and on quantum gases with rare earth atoms.
