Dieter Jaksch obtained his Ph.D. from the University of Innsbruck in Austria in 1999. His research interests are in ultracold atom physics, particularly optical lattices, and their potential applications in quantum simulation and quantum information processing. He is presently a Professor of Physics at the University of Oxford and holds a Visiting Research Professorship at the Center for Quantum Technologies in Singapore. He was named an Outstanding Referee by the American Physical Society in 2008.


Atomic and Molecular Physics

Viewpoint: A stimulated atomic response

Inelastic light scattering is used to study correlated phases of one-dimensional Bose gases. This spectroscopic technique can distinguish superfluid and insulating phases and allow identification of the transition from one to the other. Read More »

Viewpoint: Mimicking Magnetic Fields in Optical Lattices

Two groups use different approaches to realize artificial magnetic fields for atoms trapped in a one-dimensional optical lattice. Read More »
