Welcome to our group website
We are working in quantum technologies with a focus in implementations of quantum computation and quantum simulation with quantum optical systems. Our research could be applied towards developing exotic high-performance quantum processors and simulators, and also for fundamental science in the area of strongly correlated quantum systems.
Classical computers require enormous computing power and memory to simulate even the most modest quantum systems. That makes it difficult to model, for example, why certain materials are insulators and others are conductors or even superconductors. R. Feynman had grasped this since the 1980s and suggested to use instead another more controllable and perhaps artificial quantum system as a “quantum computer” or specifically in this case a “quantum simulator”. In this direction, we study and develop novel approaches in a variety of quantum platforms including superconducting quantum circuits, slow light and integrated photonic waveguide arrays. We also work with cold atoms and ions every now and then. Beyond quantum simulation and computation, we are also interested in topological physics as well as driven-dissipative quantum systems in general.
Our work is highly interdisciplinary and spans areas such as quantum optics, nano-photonics, condensed matter physics, as well as quantum information science. We are in active collaboration with worldleading experimental groups to realise our ideas read more.
