From fundamental science to emerging technologies

The institute for Functional Matter and Quantum Technologies (FMQ) combines theoretical and experimental research groups into one highly collaborative unit with expertise in quantum materials design, quantum condensed matter theory, quantum optics, quantum information, and quantum microscopy.

We explore quantum phenomena in various physical systems ranging from photons to atoms and bulk materials. Our focus lies in unraveling new physics and novel technological applications that build on quantum effects such as entanglement, state superpositions, coherence, topological phases and correlated-electron states.
