Welcome Aurélien Fabre

Aurélien has joined the group for an internship. He is doing his masters at École Polytechnique in Paris, France. He will work on implementing Sisyphus cooling at the QSIM experiment.

 

 

 

 


Welcome Martin Ringbauer

Martin did his PhD at the University of Queensland, Australia and a postdoc at Heriot-Watt University in Scotland, working on photonic quantum information processing, quantum foundations, and optomechanics. He will work as a postdoc in the quantum information team.


Laser Safety Calculator now online

We work with a variety of lasers in our lab. An important tool to keep ourselves save in the lab are the laser saftey goggles. These are however only each rated for certain wavelengths and powers.

To choose the right goggle for the right laser, we now have an online calculator available.


Welcome Manoj Joshi

Manoj has joined the group as a post-doc. He did his Ph.D. at Imperial College London, Great Britain, where he worked on Coherent dynamics of trapped ions in a Penning trap. He will work as a postdoc at the QSIM experiment.


Welcome Mahmood Irtiza Hussain!

Irtiza has joined the group as a post-doc. He received his Ph.D. from Griffith University, Australia, where he worked on engineering and integration of a high repetition rate, picosecond UV laser source with trapped ions for fast quantum logic operations. He will work as a postdoc in the ultrafast and precision lab.


Welcome Pavel Hrmo

Pavel has joined the group as a post-doc. He did his Ph.D. at Imperial College London, Great Britain, where he worked on quantum dynamics of ions in a Penning trap. He will work as a postdoc in the quantum information team.


Error-free into the age of quantum computation

Manuscript published in Physical Review X! The paper shows that trapped ion technology available today is suitable to build large-scale quantum computers. Protocols tailored to a trapped-ion quantum processor have been developed which allow to detect errors and correct for them.


Welcome Matthias Knoll!

Matthias Knoll has joined Tracy's Nanospheres And Ions team as a master student. He will be working on the implementation of a feedback system for cooling nanoparticles in optical traps.


Michael Guggemos receives his PhD

Congratulations, Michael!
