The BEC and Matterwaves group of Wolf von Klitzing have created a novel atomtronic accelerator ring for neutral atoms. It accelerates Bose-Einstein Condensates at hypersonic speeds and to transport them over record distances. This will enable novel quantum sensors for gravity and rotation.
Great distinction for Dr. Giannis Zacharakis, Principal Researcher at the Institute of Electronic Structure and Laser of FORTH, who took over responsibilities as President of the European Society for Molecular Imaging (ESMI).
