Exploring matter-wave emission phenomena in optical lattices (Prof. Dominik Schneble)

Exploring matter-wave emission phenomena in optical lattices
The quantitative understanding of spontaneous emission harks back to the early days of QED, when in 1930 Weisskopf and Wigner, using Dirac's radiation theory, calculated the transition rate of an excited atom undergoing radiative decay. Their model, which describes the emission of a photon through coherent coupling of the atom's transition dipole moment to the continuum of vacuum modes, reflects the view that spontaneous emission into free space, driven by vacuum fluctuations, is inherently irreversible.

Learning and artificial intelligence in the quantum domain (Prof. Hans Briegel)

Learning and artificial intelligence in the quantum domain
Quantum mechanics has changed the way we think about the scope and possibilities of information processing, and the foundations of computer science. [mehr]

Review procedures in Nature Photonics

Review procedures in Nature Photonics
Nature-branded journals (such as Nature, Nature Photonics, Nature Physics, etc.) are some of the most prestigious and important scientific publications in the world today. To maintain the quality and high impact factor of each journal, the editors rigorously select papers that provide conceptual or technological breakthrough according to stringent acceptance criteria and a unique reviewing process.

Double Feature: Distillation of Single Photons based on Cavity QED (M.Sc. Severin Daiss)

Distillation of Single Photons based on Cavity QED
Custom-shaped single photons are an indispensable tool for many quantum communication applications. We distill them out of incoming optical pulses that are reflected from an atom-cavity system [1]. [mehr]

Double Feature: Geometry of variational manifolds and the Bose-Hubbard model (Dr. Lucas Hackl)

Geometry of variational manifolds and the Bose-Hubbard model
A key challenge in the theoretical study of quantum many body systems is to overcome the exponential growth of the Hilbert space with the system size. Many successful approaches are variational, i.e., they are based on choosing suitable families of states that capture key properties of the system. Prominent examples range from Gaussian states to matrix product states and tensor networks. [mehr]
