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.

Gerald Stocker receives his Master

Congratulations, Gerald!

 Thesis Title: Development of novel micro-fabricated ion traps







Julian Rickert receives his Master

Congratulations, Julian!

 Thesis Title: Simultaneous and individual ion addressing for quantum information processing






Welcome Lukas Pernthaler

Lukas Pernthaler joined the QSim team as a Master student and is working on a single ion addressing setup to address a linear chain of up to 50 ions.




Welcome Marco Canteri

Marco joined the PhiNet/SciNet tean where he will be working on a single ion addressing beam for Raman transitions.




Welcome Giovanni Cerchiari

Giovanni has joined the group as a PostDoc. He obtained his PhD from the university of Heidelberg on laser cooling of negative ions and spectroscopy of negatively charged Lanthanum. In Innsbruck, his work on the Barium project will focus on the new setup based on a hemispherical mirror.
