Development and Realisation of a Transportable Cold Atom Machine

Transportable cold atom experiments open up a new path for applications in e. g. geodesy, where the differential gravitational red shift can be measured by comparing two spatially separated atomic clocks. This thesis describes the design and set-up …

Exploring and Benchmarking Quantum-assisted Neural Networks with Qubit Layers

The aim of this work is to explore practical implementations of Quantum and Quantum-assisted Machine Learning algorithms and benchmark potential benefits of utilizing quantum phenomena in Quantum-assisted Neural Networks with qubit layers. Two known …

Building up a modular Na-K quantum gas experiment

This thesis describes the construction of a second generation, ultracold atomic mixture experiment, aiming for modularity, robustness and compactness. The setup is designed to work with Bose-Fermi (23Na, 40K) and Bose-Bose (23Na, 39K) mixtures. The …

Starting a Na-K experiment for simulating quantum many-body phenomena

This thesis describes the construction of a new apparatus to study quantum gas mixtures of sodium and potassium. Our experimental approach entails, using two independent two-dimensional magnetooptical traps (2D MOTs) as sources of cold atoms for a …
