DFG Schwerpunktsprogramm Giant interactions in Rydberg Systems (GiRyd)

The combination of ultra cold atoms and high resolution laser spectroscopy of Rydberg atoms has enabled the observation of very strong interactions between Rydberg atoms, the so-called Rydberg Blockade. Triggered by this milestone a new research field emerged which is branching out from atomic physics to molecular physics, physical chemistry, many-body physics, quantum information processing, quantum simulation, quantum optics, and semiconductor physics as well as surface physics and sensor applications.
