Mirco Siercke is a postdoctoral researcher at the Leibniz University Hannover, Germany. After receiving his Ph.D. in cold-atom physics in 2010 from the University of Toronto, Canada, he moved to the Nanyang Technical University, Singapore, where he worked on a broad spectrum of atomic physics experiments including Rydberg atoms, matter-wave interferometers, and superconducting atom chips. He currently works in the group of Silke Ospelkaus on laser cooling of molecular gases.


A New Way to Slow Down Complex Molecules

A magnetic-field based method can slow molecular beams that cannot be slowed using other techniques, unlocking the door to ultracold polyatomic molecular physics. Read More »
