Sabrina Maniscalco visiting AQM

Sabrina Maniscalco (University of Turku) is visiting the group from 29 to 31 May 2017.

On Tue, 30 May at 14.30 in Aula A, she will deliver a PhD colloquium about Quantum probes for complex systems.

Controlling and probing complex quantum systems is of paramount importance for the implementation of quantum simulators, measurement-based quantum computers, and quantum-enhanced devices based on coherent transport. These technologies hold the promise to revolutionise all existing information processing and communication protocols, therefore having a profound impact on society. The community is now working on the development of a radically new approach to probe complex quantum systems, based on the quantification and optimisation of the information which can be extracted by an immersed quantum probe as opposed to a classical one. Researchers investigate and experimentally implement the indirect and non-destructive monitoring of quantum phase transitions, transport properties, and nonequilibrium phenomena in both ultracold environments and quantum optical systems. Time correlations, open-quantum-systems techniques and non-Markovianity play a crucial role in carrying on these lines or research.
