Thomas Juffmann


Thomas Juffmann is a physicist at Stanford University. He received his PhD at the University of Vienna for his work in experimental quantum physics. He authored several scientific papers in peer reviewed journals. Some of his interests are microscopy, quantum physics, the photoelectric effect and underwater rugby.


Philipp Haslinger


Philipp Haslinger studied Physics and Mathematics at the University of Vienna and is currently a physicist at UC Berkeley. Since 2015 he is supported by the Erwin-Schrödinger Fellowship (FWF). His work is currently focusing on experimental quantum mechanics and on the search for dark energy using atom interferometry. Besides that, he is interested in a variety of topics: tests of Lorentz invariance,  – quantum decoherence, –  quantum linearity,  as well as cooling/trapping and quantum optics with atoms, biomolecules and nanoparticles.  He is the author of many peer reviewed scientific papers and is not a fan of cilantro.


Enar de Dios Rodríguez


Enar de Dios Rodríguez received a BA and MA in Translation and Interpretation from the University of Vigo (Spain, 2009 and 2011). In 2011 she started a BFA in Photography at the University of Applied Arts of Vienna (Austria) and is currently a MFA candidate at the San Francisco Art Institute (expected in May 2016). Her visual work, dealing with photographic concepts, the idea of the archive and textual imagery can be seen here and her translations of contemporary and conceptual poetry can be read here.



Brannon Klopfer, for being a gorgeous model and a great physicist, software and hardware engineer.

Prof. Mark Kasevich, for lab space and equipment.

The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, for funding research and equipment without which this project would not have been possible.

Philipp Haslinger wants to thank the FWF (Der Wissenschaftsfond) and UC Berkeley.
