Cold Atoms for Quantum Technologies

Our research is focused on the study of interactions between cold Rydberg atoms. Our main motivation is the understanding of interacting many-body dynamics and multi-particle entanglement.

Our main interests lie in Quantum technologies, with new ongoing projects in DQC1 - deterministic quantum computation with one clean qubit - (computation based on mixed-states) and cluster states for measurement based quantum computation (MBQC) .
