The Quantum Systems Engineering Group
Quantum technology aims to revolutionize indispensable aspects of modern life like computing, communication or sensing and measurement.
The superior functionality of a quantum technology usually arises from protocols that require full control over non-equilibrium dynamics of many-body quantum systems.
Numerous platforms for realizing quantum technologies have been identified and are intensely studied.
No clear winner is currently in sight and new players continuously enter the field.
Hybrid systems where different quantum objects couple strongly to develop new properties promise overcoming current limitations.
Research in our group focuses on theoretical studies of quantum optical platforms including ultracold atoms,
ion traps and cavities as well as quantum materials whose non-equilibrium dynamics can be controlled by ultrafast optics.
We currently focus on hybridizing these different platforms through strong coupling between light and matter by cavities.
THz Cavity quantum electrodynamicsCavity quantum electrodynamics deals with the strong coupling between an optical cavity mode and a quantum system. It has witnessed spectacular successes in the optical regime, where it constitutes an irreplaceable building block for any photonic quantum technology, such as quantum computation or qu...
