Quantum Systems Unit
With the arrival of experiments that are able to create, control and measure individual quantum particles came the development of new theories and models to describe such systems, such as quantum information, quantum simulation and new aspects of few-particle/small systems physics.
The research in the Quantum Systems Unit theoretically investigates ideas and concepts of quantum information and quantum engineering in synthetic and naturally occurring quantum systems. Our favourite systems are taken from the area of ultracold atomic gases, but also include solid-state nano-structures, nano-optical devices and even biological systems.
...but hard work was the reason that Tim was able to successfully defend his thesis proposal in front of Prof. Brand from Massey University in New Zealand. Well done Tim!
...into physicists. Congratulations to Lewis for defeding his thesis proposal in front of Prof. Hakuta from UEC! Optical binding will never be the same.
When one finally dons the robe and listens to speeches full of gravitas, then, and only then, does one get hit by the full weight that comes with being a PhD. Congratulations Irina!
