Technische Physik



    Aktuell vollzieht sich eine enorme Entwicklung der Quantentechnologien von Forschungsergebnissen hin zu realen Anwendungen. Besonders vielversprechend für zukünftige Anwendungen sind dabei optische Verfahren, die einzelne Lichtteilchen (Photonen) als Informationsträger nutzen. Unabhängig vom Anwendungsszenario ist es unerlässlich, einzelne Photonen gezielt erzeugen und detektieren zu können. Performante Einzelphotonen-Emitter und Einzelphotonendetektoren zählen daher zu den zukünftigen Schlüsselkomponenten. Besonders herausfordernd ist es, die genaue Photonenanzahl innerhalb eines Lichtpulses zu bestimmen. ...

    ERC Unlimit2D

    Controlling light- and matter excitations down to the microscopic scale is one major challenge in modern optics. Applications arising from this field, such as novel coherent- and quantum light sources have the potential to affect our daily life. unLiMIt-2D aims to establish novel materials like monolayers of transition metal dichalcogenides as a new platform in solid-state cavity quantum electrodynamics.

    The research network Quantum Communication (Q.com) focuses on investigating the concept of long distance quantum communication. Here the repeater amplifier of classical long distance communication links is replaced by a quantum repeater. Quantum repeater devices require components which are also essential for other applications of quantum information processing.

    Logo Netzwerk Topologische Isolatoren

    Elitenetzwerk Bayern “Topologische Isolatoren”

    The International Doctorate Program is focusing on investigating the fundamental properties and potential applications of topological insulators. Topological insulators are a new state of matter with unique physical characteristics: their surfaces or edges are electrically conducting while the bulk of the material remains insulating. Additionally, the electron spin plays a decisive role for the conduction properties in these surfaces or edges, making topological insulators a very interesting subject for scientific studies. This also means that topological insulators are prime candidates for potential spintronic applications.

    The TOPOPOLIS project is a 24 month fellowship in the framework of Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions and got its name from TOPOlogical POLaritons In Semiconductor microstructures. It is aimed at the fundamental understanding and realization of topologically protected edge modes in a hybrid light-matter system. These hybrid states are so-called exciton-polaritons, hosted by technologically well-developed semiconductor structures.

    The newly established Dresden-Würzburg Center of Excellence for Complexity and Topological Quantum Matter (CT.QMAT) Research functions as a bridge between the condensed matter research institutions at Dresden and Würzburg. Our aim is to develop a deep understanding of topological phenomena in general and to identify materials in which those phenomena can be observed in the laboratory.
