Prof. Eugene Demler has been honoured as a 'Distinguished Scholar' by the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics. This program has been launched by MPQ two years ago "in order to offer outstanding scientists from other research institutes worldwide new cooperation possibilities[...]

Professor Demler is well known internationally for his outstanding theoretical research in condensed matter and ultracold atom physics. Some of his research achievements concern the area of high-temperature superconductivity and the interdisciplinary field of ultracold atomic and molecular quantum gases. Other research highlights include work on quantum magnetism, non-equilibrium properties of quantum many-body systems and the realization and characterization of topological phases of matter. His pioneering work has laid the groundwork for experiments on quantum magnetism with ultracold quantum gases."
