Kai Morgener is a postdoctoral researcher working on two-dimensional fermionic gases in the group of Prof. Dr. Henning Moritz, University of Hamburg.
2009, he received his Diploma thesis working on the spectroscopy of semiconductor micropillar lasers in the group of Prof. Dr. S. Reitzenstein at the University of Würzburg. In 2010, Kai joined the group of Henning Moritz in Hamburg, where he finished his PhD in 2014. During the doctorate studies, he set up a new apparatus dedicated to experiments on isolated two-dimensional ultracold fermionic lithium-6 gases, providing local access with two high-resolution microscope objectives used for probing and imaging. His research interests lie in the field of low-dimensional fermionic quantum gases and include thermodynamic and superfluid properties in balanced and imbalanced systems.
