Almost all systems that manipulate quantum information or in which quantum effects are important have to be cooled to the vicinity of their ground states. As the motivation to bring more and more systems to the quantum regime grows the demand for better and faster cooling schemes increases.
We believe that by using innovative cooling schemes, three very important goals which are: cooling of a large ion chain, the creation of BEC without evaporating cooling and cooling of a macroscopic object to its ground state would be eventually reached. We are actively working on proposing new and more sophisticated cooling schemes. We have a few running and past projects in the group concerning the cooling schemes of trapped particles:
- Jorge is a dad!
- Work of the group is published in Science
- Quantum biology work of the group features in a full page particle in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung
- ITP and the Center of QuantumBioSciences is part of newly approved Collaborative Research Center 1279
- The work of the Institute was mentioned in The Economist
