AIAS Fellows' Seminar: Nikolaj Zinner, AIAS Fellow

Quantum Few-Body Engineering. Building quantum networks one unit at a time

2017.07.24 | AIAS

Date Mon 11 Dec
Time 14:15 16:15
Location The AIAS Auditorium, Building 1632, Høegh-Guldbergs Gade 6B, 8000 Aarhus C


In this talk I will take you into the fascinating and often counter-intuitive world of quantum physics. First I will focus on recent developments in the description of strongly interacting particles confined to move on a line. Then I will discuss how this system has kickstarted designs of next generation quantum components in platforms that are hotly pursued in both academia and industry to facilitate a so-called second quantum revolution.

Short bio

Nikolaj Thomas Zinner is a theoretical physicists that works on quantum physics at the border of few- and many-body physics. He started his career with a PhD in nuclear structure and nuclear astrophysics but has since moved into atomic and condensed-matter physics. Along with international collaborators, he has developed a new approach to strongly interacting particles in one dimensions that shows a great engineering potential in these systems that is promising for applications in future quantum technologies.

What is a Fellows' Seminar?

The AIAS Fellows' Seminar is a session of seminars held by the AIAS fellow or by other speakers proposed by the fellows. In each seminar, one fellow will present and discuss his/her current research and research project, closing off with a question and discussion session.

All seminars are held in English and open to the public. Registration to the seminar is not necessary.  Read more about the AIAS Fellows' Seminar here.
