Master in Physics - Laurea Magistrale

The BEC Center offers courses and thesis projects for the Master Degree in Physics of the University of Trento (Laurea Magistrale in Fisica).

We propose projects for Master Theses in the following areas:

  • Experiments with ultracold atoms
  • Theory of quantum gases and fluids
  • Topological phases of matter
  • Quantum optics and theory of photonic systems
  • Quantum simulations and quantum computing

All professors and researchers of the BEC Center can be Thesis advisors. In particular

  • experiments: Gabriele Ferrari, Giacomo Lamporesi, Alessandro Zenesini
  • theory: Iacopo Carusotto, Franco Dalfovo, Stefano Giorgini, Philipp Hauke, Chiara Menotti, Alessio Recati and Sandro Stringari
