Quantum physics & optics

Professor Asger Mortensen

Center for Polariton-driven Light-Matter Inter- actions (POLIMA)

POLIMA will explore and manipulate polaritons in flatland, in engineered meta-surfaces interfacing light-emitting quantum systems or serving as light sources themselves. Enabled by concerted efforts…

Professor Ulrik Lund Andersen - head of center, BigQ

Center for Macroscopic Quantum States (bigQ)

Peculiar quantum effects – quantum coherence and quantum entanglement – are the “gasoline” that allows fast-blown computing, completely confidential communication and ultra-sensitive sensing. These quantum…

Professor Peter Lodahl - head of center, Hy-Q

Center for Hybrid Quantum Networks (Hy-Q)

Quantum theory was founded more than a century ago and revolutionized our conception of the microscopic world by predicting highly counterintuitive phenomena. For instance, a…
