The Willitsch Group - Cold and Controlled Molecules and Ions
Welcome to the Cold and Controlled Molecules and Ions group at the University of Basel led by Prof. Stefan Willitsch. Our research is concerned with the preparation and control of cold molecules and molecular ions and their applications in both chemistry and physics. On this website, you can find information about our group, our research, our teaching and opportunities to join us.
Moritz Weegen joins our group
Moritz Weegen joined our group as a new PhD student in February 2019. Moritz graduated from the University of Heidelberg and will work on exploring the quantum dynamics of a trapped ion coupled to a nanoscillator. Welcome, Moritz !
