Coincidence helps with quantum measurement

Through randomly selected measurements, physicists in our group can determine the quantum entanglement of many-particle systems. With the newly developed method, quantum simulations can be extended to a larger number of quantum particles. In the Science Magazine, the researchers report on the first successful demonstration of this method developed by physicists from Innsbruck, Austria.


Konstantin Friebe receives his PhD

Congratulations, Konstantin!

Thesis Tile: On dispersive interactions between a trapped ion and a cavity field





Welcome Marco Valentini

Marco joined the group as a PhD student. He got his master degree in Photonics and Nano-Optics at Politecnico di Milano and did his master thesis at ICFO in Barcelona working on solid state quantum memories. In Innsbruck he will join the CryoTrap team to work on the development of 2D ion traps.


Welcome Max Hettrich

Max joined our goup. Max got his PhD from the University of Mainz on Measurement of Reduced Dipole Matrix Elements in 40Ca+ and Construction of a Scalable Light-Ion Interface. He will work at Alpine Quantum Technologies on building a quantum computer.


Welcome Georg Jacob

Georg joined our goup. Georg got his PhD from the University of Mainz on Ion Implantation and Transmission Microscopy with Nanometer Resolution using a Deterministic Ion Source. He will work at Alpine Quantum Technologies on building a quantum computer.


Noise improves energy flow

Researchers in our group, the IQOQI Innsbruck and the University of Heidelberg, have demonstrated a quantum effect in which noise helps electronic excitation to propagate through a network of ten qubits. The work has now been published in Physical Review Letters and constitutes controlled study of quantum transport, with importance to fields ranging from condensed-matter physics and material science to quantum chemistry and quantum biology.
