Wittgenstein awardee Peter Zoller’s research group studies topics in the fields of theoretical quantum optics and atomic physics as well as quantum information and condensed matter theory. The researchers mainly focus on theoretically describing real physical systems while closely collaborating with the experimental field and connecting the fields mentioned above in an interdisciplinary approach. Their main research activities aim to realize, simulate and investigate novel quantum many-body systems consisting of atoms, ions or molecules or based on hybrid systems of optomechanical and solid state systems. In addition, the researchers are developing and searching for new tools and protocols for applications in the fields of quantum information and communication technology.
