Research areas

  • Simple time-dependent quantum systems (two or three energy states)
  • Laser-induced molecular processes (femtochemistry)
  • Dynamics of scalar and spinor Bose-Einstein condensates, vortices and topological defects
  • Photo- and magnetoassociation of ultracold atoms into molecules
  • Cold atomic collisions and alkaline earth atomic clocks
  • Electron spin waves and magnons in atomic hydrogen
  • Dynamics of open quantum systems, and their simulation with quantum jumps (Monte Carlo), especially with non-Markovian systems
