Philipp Treutlein is an Associate Professor of Physics at the University of Basel in Switzerland. He studied physics at the University of Konstanz, Germany, and at Stanford University, US, where he was a Fulbright fellow in Steven Chu's lab. Philipp obtained his Ph.D. in 2008 from the Ludwig-Maximilians University of Munich, where he worked in the group of Theodor Hänsch on experiments with ultracold atoms on atom chips. In 2010 Philipp started his own group at the University of Basel, working on quantum metrology with ultracold atoms and exploring quantum interfaces of atoms and solid-state systems.
