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.

We are regularly looking for intern students, PhD candidates and post-doctoral researchers. If you are interested in working with us, please click here!
