    Lisa Wörner (Speaker at FOMO2021)

    Lisa Wörner works at the ZARM – Center for Applied Space Technology and Microgravity, University of Bremen in the Space Technology Group. is a researcher with interests in different quantum mechanical areas. Her main focus is BECCAL (Bose Einstein Condensate and Cold Atom Laboratory), a joint mission between NASA and DLR to investigate atom optics under microgravity. In this capacity she is striving to advance fundamental quantum physics research in space as well as developing new technologies. This includes the preparation of experiments for extreme environments, tackling open challenges, finding novel solutions, and the ruggedization and miniaturization of setups. In addition to the research on cold and condensed atoms, she is involved in development of optical clocks and quantum repeaters for space based applications.…

    Philippe Bouyer (Speaker at FOMO2021)

    Philippe Bouyer is research director at CNRS and deputy director of the Institut d’Optique Graduate School in Bordeaux. He received his doctorate at Ecole Normale Supérieure in 1995. Since then, he has been worked on atom interferometer-based inertial sensor experiments, atom lasers and Anderson localization with cold atoms. His current interests are the study of quantum simulators with ultracold atoms and the development of atom interferometers for testing general relativity in space or detecting gravity fields and gravitational waves underground. He is the recipient of the 2012 Louis D award of the French academy, APS fellow and OSA senior member.

    Onur Hosten (Speaker at FOMO2021)

    Onur Hosten is head of the Quantum Sensing with Atoms and Light Group at the Institute of Science and Technology Austria (IST Austria). He received his PhD from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and then worked as a postdoc and Research Associate at Stanford University, Palo Alto. His group aims to develop innovative techniques to control quantum properties of atomic and optical systems with an eye towards applications in the domain of precision sensing. By manipulating the collective properties of cold atomic ensembles in optical cavities, the group intends to build precision sensors of time, force, acceleration, and in the process gain more insight into foundational aspects of quantum mechanics. The current focus is developing…
