A warm welcome to the lecture “Advanced Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics” in the winter term of 2022/23!


The lecture will take you on a tour through one of the most exciting areas of modern physics, ranging from basic concepts in quantum science over the physics of atoms and molecules to modern applications like quantum computing and attosecond science.


The lecture will be held in held mondays and wednesdays at 2:15 p.m in the lecture hall 2 of the Kirchhoff-Institute for Physics (Im Neuenheimer Feld 227). Please make sure that you comply with the corona regulations and that you wear an FFP2 or medical mask in the lecture hall to ensure maximum safety under corona conditions.


Support material of the lecture will be provided in the Moodle portal of Heidelberg University under (pwd: Born_meets_Dirac_2022) which includes the topics of each week, scripts and literature recommendations, as well as complementary learning resources for each week. In addition, via the Moodle portal I will also make lecture videos available which I recorded during the corona shut-down in the winter semester 2020/21. The videos cover a large fraction of the lectures, yet not all. The recordings are of questionable quality (and sometimes you can easily guess the time of the day or night by the mental status of the speaker), but they might of help for recapitulation of a certain topic, or for those, who cannot attend the lectures in person.


We provide four tutorial groups organized and supervised by highly experienced, world-class researchers in the field of AMO and quantum physics (JunProf. Lauriane Chomaz, PD Dr. Alexander Dorn, PD Dr. Robert Moshammer, and Dr. Christian Ott). The problem sets will be prepared by Prof. Jörg Evers. Please inscribe to the work groups via PhÜ under Here you will also find the weekly problem sets, which will be electronically distributed on Wednesdays after the lecture. These problem sets have to be handed by Tuesday next week and will then be discussed with the mentors during the upcoming tutorials.


It is great to see you all soon in the lecture hall! We sincerely hope that you will enjoy the course on one of the fastest growing and most exciting fields of modern physics as much as we do. Get engaged and have enjoy Advanced Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics!
