Theoretical Quantum Optics Research Group

We use quantum optical approaches to study potential applications of unique quantum phenomena such as superposition and entanglement (e.g. a future "quantum internet"), to probe whether these phenomena are universal, and to investigate whether they could play a role in biology (e.g. in neuroscience). Our theoretical research is often done in close collaboration with leading experimental groups.
