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.
Feshly awarded PhDs Jiabao and James are off to new adventures (one each) and we will miss them dearly. They are equipped with all OIST had to offer and will, no doubt, be great ambassadors for Okinawa.
...when planning to defend your thesis work successfully. And (the now) Dr. Chen did just this. Congratulations Jiabao on impressive work and a successful final exam! The hat fits well.
...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!
