Quantum Interfaces Group

The Quantum Interfaces group is led by Prof. Tracy Northup at the University of Innsbruck's Institute for Experimental Physics. In our labs, we investigate how to transfer quantum states between light and matter, based on the interactions between single atoms, photons, and phonons. These fundamental physics experiments have emerging quantum technologies, and in particular, for future quantum networks.



November 10, 2019 Welcome to Max Meusburger ! Max joined the nanosphere experiment as a master's student. He wants to work on transferring a nanoparticle from a Paul trap to an optical trap.
