Ou Team in Munich is happy to welcome Sandro Kraemer to their team. Sandro is a postdoc coming from Leuven University in Belgium and here is what he has to say about his work within the team:
I will be working on the cryogenic trap at LMU and sympathetic cooling
of thorium ions to allow for new measurements extending our knowledge

The isomer of thorium-229 has previously already been subject of my
research: During my PhD thesis at KU Leuven the isomer’s radiative
decay was measured for the first time using beams of synthetic
