Sabrina Maniscalco (University of Turku) is visiting the group from 29 to 31 May 2017.
On Tue, 30 May at 14.30 in Aula A, she will deliver a PhD colloquium about Quantum probes for complex systems.
Controlling and probing complex quantum systems is of paramount importance for the implementation of quantum simulators, measurement-based quantum computers, and quantum-enhanced devices based on coherent transport. These technologies hold the promise to revolutionise all existing information processing and communication protocols, therefore having a profound impact on society. The community is now working on the development of a radically new approach to probe complex quantum systems, based on the quantification and optimisation of the information which can be extracted by an immersed quantum probe as opposed to a classical one. Researchers investigate and experimentally implement the indirect and non-destructive monitoring of quantum phase transitions, transport properties, and nonequilibrium phenomena in both ultracold environments and quantum optical systems. Time correlations, open-quantum-systems techniques and non-Markovianity play a crucial role in carrying on these lines or research.
