Prof. Dr. Jürgen Eschner

The experimental research of Jürgen Eschner and his collaborators is dedicated to the controlled interaction between light and matter in the quantum mechanical regime.

The main goal is to study and experimentally realize the transformation between quantum states of single photons and single atoms. For this purpose, single laser-cooled atoms in atom and ion traps and quantum mechanically entangled photon pairs are used, as well as high Q optical resonators in which light fields are stored and controlled.
