Quantum metrology with Bose Einstein Condensates (Prof. M. Oberthaler)

One aspect of metrology, the science of measurement, is the exploration of the ultimate precision limit. It is known for quite some time that the new possibilities in quantum mechanics allow the surpassing of the ultimate classical precision limit given by counting statistics. [mehr]

How to catch, and detect, a photon (Prof. W. Tittel)

Future quantum networks will allow the secure distribution of encryption keys over extended distances, blind quantum computing, and networked quantum computers and atomic clocks. [mehr]

Aspects of Topological Photonics (Prof. M. Rechtsman)

The beauty of topological materials is that their electronic properties can be essentially described by integer topological invariants associated with their band structures.  [mehr]

Synthetic gauge fields in synthetic dimensions: Magnetic crystals and chiral edge modes (Prof. R. Fazio)

Synthetic ladders realized with one-dimensional alkaline-earth(-like) fermionic gases and subject to a gauge field represent a promising environment for the investigation of quantum Hall physics with ultracold atoms. [mehr]

Metasurfaces for Wavefront Shaping: High-performance Planar Photonic Components beyond Refractive and Diffractive Optics (Prof. F. Capasso)

The design of fundamental optical components such as lenses, gratings, and holograms has remained essentially unchanged for at least fifty years, relying on textbook refractive and diffractive optics. [mehr]
