In the Quantum Dynamics Unit, we explore many-particle quantum systems, in particular their intercation with electromagnetic radiation, to discover new quantum phenomena and, where applicable, harness them for quantum technologies. Electrons on liquid helium provide an excellent experimental platform to investigate quantum many-body physics and explore new exotic states of matter. Our current work is focused on novel photo-transport phenomena, collective coupling of electron ensembles to cavity modes, electron crystals, as well as potential application of electron spins for quantum computing. Coupled electron-nuclear spin ensembles in some crystalline solids, such as easy-plane antiferromagnets, is another system of interest to us. For more details, visit our Research page.
Shan's defense and new job
