Quantum Optics Theory

Prof. Dr. Maciej Lewenstein

    Activities:

The group works on a very broad spectrum of problems; from standard quantum optics, through physics of matter in ultra-intense and ultra-short laser pulses, attosecond physics through quantum information theory (mathematical foundations and implementations in atomic, quantum optical and condensed matter systems, quantum simulators), and physics of ultracold/degenerate gases of atoms, ions, molecules, photons (from weakly interacting systems, non-linear atom optics or optics to strongly correlated systems, lattice gases, Hubbard models etc.)

    Available Resources
  • Expertise in quantum optics, atomic physics, nonlinear dynamics, statistical physics, quantum field theory, many body systems, disordered systems, neural networks, quantum information, foundations of quantum mechanics.
