Scientific Advisory Board
An external scientific advisory board, made up by internationally renowned experts in academia and industry, provides an invaluable outside perspective to support the further growth and development of the IQST center. They counsel the executive board to ensure that within the center of IQST there is a high quality of research activities and a stimulating infrastructure.
Prof. Dr. Markus Aspelmeyer
Quantum Foundations and Quantum Information on the Nano- and Microscale
University of Vienna
Dr. Jürgen Groß
Executive Vice President Applied Research and Production Technology
… is exploring the potential of quantum technology for Bosch.
Prof. Dr. Atac Imamoglu
Quantum Photonics Group
... is on the one hand interested in quantum optical phenomena that is enriched by the solid-state physics and on the other hand, uses quantum optical techniques to investigate many-body physics in two dimensional (2D) materials.
Dr.-Ing. E.h. Peter Leibinger
Managing Partner and CTO
... is convinced that photonics based quantum technologies will continue the success story of photonics as an enabler of applications and technologies that have a huge impact on both: the economy and society as a whole.
Prof. Dr. Rainer Müller
Physik und Physikdidaktik
... is promoting the educational aspects of quantum technologies on a national and European scale, thus addressing the emerging needs for "quantum-ready" workforce.
Prof. Dr. Christine Silberhorn
Integrated Quantum Optics
... is exploring photonic quantum systems for the development of quantum technologies based on integrated optics, pulsed quantum light and efficient multiplexing schemes.
Prof. Dr. Elisabeth Giacobino
CNRS Research Director at the Laboratoire Kastler Brossel
... is developing systems for quantum information, interfacing light with atomic ensembles and with semiconductor nanostructures.
Prof. Dr. John Junkins
Director, Center for Mechanics and Control
... is an academic researcher who develops analytical, computational and experimental methods, seekingclosure between models and physical realizations on the interfaces of advanced sensing, modeling and control of dynamical systems. His most important products, however, are four generations of stellar PhD offspring whose collective scholarship dwarfs his personal research.
Prof. Dr. Vincent Poor
… is interested in information theory and signal processing and their applications in communications and related fields.
