at the Max-Planck Institute of Quantum Optics

(Garching near Munich, Germany)


January 2022: We currently have several projects for master students to join our group and to work on exciting experiments advancing atomic, molecular and optical physics. The projects involve nonlinear optics, integrated optics, precision molecular spectroscopy, digital holography.

Please contact Nathalie Picqué to enquire details about the projects.


Doctoral positions ( pdf announcement 4 pages)
The topics of the available projects are:
- Precision spectroscopy of small molecules for tests of fundamental physics
- Digital holography
- Quantum-enhanced interferometry with frequency combs
- Frequency comb spectroscopy on a chip
