Key aspects of activity
- Quantum gases in driven optical lattices
Julius Seeger is currently working as PhD-student in the group of Prof. Klaus Sengstock at the „Quantum Gases in Driven Optical Lattices” project, especially on the realisation of Bose Einstein condensation in higher Bloch bands of the hexagonal optical lattice with twofold basis (graphene type, honeycomb lattice).
He started studying physics in Hamburg during school at the age of 16. After his Abitur in 2013 he continued his studies and finished his B.Sc. degree already in 2015. During the following master courses, he specialised on solid state systems and quantum physics of ultracold gases. He wrote his thesis in Prof. Klaus Sengstock’s research group about active magnetic field compensation and magnetometry in quantum gas experiments (originally in German). The M.Sc. qualification was passed in 2017 with distinction.
His research interests include – within others – the quantum simulation with bosons and fermions in optical lattices also in combination with non-trivial, topological phases of matter, spinor condensates and artificial gauge fields. Further he works on projects in the field of precision and rf electronics.
