Research Topics

Researchers within IQST investigate and explore a large range of quantum systems.  They seek to gain new understanding of quantum materials, albeit in solid state, biological, or atomic gas systems.  They utilize single quantum particles such as on-demand single photons, a single Rydberg atom, or an NV diamond center in order to build up complex quantum systems, investigate light-matter interfaces, study exotic properties of quantum materials, or create ground-breaking new sensors.  The foundation of this work is the quantum electrical and optical engineering research within the center;  this enables not only the possibility to realize new prototypes of quantum technologies, but also to develop exotic new quantum systems.
