Dr. Christoph Becker
Dr. Christoph Becker is scientific coordinator of the quantum gas research section in the group of Prof. Dr. Klaus Sengstock.
He studied physics at the University of Giessen and the University of Washington, Seattle. In 2002 Christoph joined the group of Prof. Dr. Alfred Müller and finsihed his diploma in the field of electron impact ionization in 2003. He started working on his PhD thesis devoted to Spinor condensates in optical lattices the same year. In 2008 he received his PhD, winning the PhD award of the University of Hamburg.
His research interests lie in the field of ultracold quantum gas mixtures in optical lattices and include Spinor condensates in triangular and hexagonal optical lattices, spin dynamics of bosons and fermions as well as Ytterbium-Rubidium and Potassium-Rubidium mixtures.
