The document containing a summary of results of the Commission HLSC is available for download 

The Commission High Level Steering Committee (http://qurope.eu/db/news/expert-group-quantum-technology-flagship) has released a summary of the results obtained during its first meeting (Brussels, Tuesday 20 Spetember 2016).

Quantum Device Group

Research Type: 

Our research group explores the physics of information in quantum integrated circuits, which we design, realize and measure. These objects can be viewed as quantum machines processing information. In contrast with ordinary circuits, in which quantum mechanics enters only at the level of individual electrons, the degrees of freedom of these machines at the signal level behave according to the laws of quantum mechanics.

During the last decade, quantum entanglement has been intensively studied within quantum information science and has also appeared as a natural goal of recent quantum experiments. Because of that the theoretical background of detecting entanglement has been rapidly developing. However, most of this development concentrated on bipartite or few-party entanglement, while today's experiments typically involve many particles.

Quantum Information Theory and Quantum Metrology

Research Type: 

Our group works on various aspects of quantum information theory related to creation and characterization of quantum entanglement. We are especially interested in entanglement in quantum optical systems, such as cold gases or photonic systems. We also work on quantum metrlogy, in paricular, on using entangled quantum states for quantum enhanced metrology.
