Lecture: From optical Airy beams to quantum gases of strontium

Speaker: Dr. Georgios Siviloglou, University of Amsterdam

Time & Date: 19:00 April 9th, 2018

Venue: Room 301 in the School of Physics

Dr.  Georgios Siviloglou moved from Greece in 2004  to the Center for Research and Education in Optics and Lasers (CREOL) at University of Central Florida to work on nonlinear photonics with Professor  Christodoulides for his PhD. Afterwards he joined in 2010 the group of  the Nobel laureate Wolfgang Ketterle at MIT to work on ultracold quantum  gases. Since 2014 he has been working with Professor Schreck at the University of Amsterdam towards the first quantum gas of strontium. In  the last year he received a Marie-Curie fellowship. He has published  several major papers in PRL with citations over 4000.
