Lucas Hofer

DPhil Student

I am a DPhil student focusing on using ultracold quantum gases to study many-body physics.

My undergraduate studies were completed at the University of California Los Angeles. Upon graduating, I worked as a postbaccalaureate researcher in Christoph Niemann’s High Energy Density Plasma (HEDP) group. I left the HEDP group to join DataRay Inc.—a laser beam profiling company—as a Technical Scientist where I focused on the development of laser beam profiling algorithms.

I attended the University of Stuttgart for my master’s degree with an International Max Planck Research School fellowship. My master’s thesis was completed in Tilman Pfau’s institute under the direction Tim Langen and centered around the development of an experimental setup to laser cool diatomic molecules.

A list of my publications can be found on Google Scholar.
