Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Ertmer
Quantum Optics, Precision Metrology
Work within iSense:
Prof. Wolfgang Ertmer has an internationally outstanding expertise in quantum engineering and metrology. The team could win him as a consultant for the project. Since 1985 he has established a research group for Laser Cooling, Atom & Quantum Optics and Laser Medicine and trained many outstanding young scientists. His group combines research in fundamental fields of physics (especially quantum physics) with applications in such far-ranging fields as laser development and laser applications in medicine. The strength of his research group lies in the strong and fruitful collaboration between these different sub-fields as well as with the theoretical quantum optics group at the University of Hannover. Furthermore he is coodinator of the Sonderforschungsbereich 407 and Excellence Cluster QUEST, Co-coordinator of the Laboratory of Nano- and Quantum-Engineering of the University Hanover and member of the Board Laser Zentrum Hannover.
