Condensed matter theory and quantum information

Research Type: 

We investigate solid-state systems for quantum information processing.

In particular, we investigate single electron spin dynamics and coherence in semiconductor and carbon nanostructores (quantum dots, quantum wires, defects, etc.) as well as superconducting qubits. Further research areas include light-matter interactions between solid-state qubits and photons, optical cavities and the use of cavity quantum electrodynamics for quantum information processing, and the production, dynamics, and characterization of entanglement in solid-state systems. We are also working on the theory of quantum computation and quantum information.
