Our research covers various aspects of complex quantum systems, especially non-equilibrium settings. We have a strong focus on the development of computational methods that leverage the latest developments in machine learning for this purpose.
IFISC (Institute for Cross-Disciplinary Physics and Complex Systems) is a joint research institute of the University of the Balearic Islands (UIB) and the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) created in 2007 building upon the former Cross-Disciplinary Physics Department of the Mediterranean Institute for Advance Studies (IMEDEA) dating from 1995. Its mission is to develop Cross-Disciplinary and Strategic Research in Complex Systems following the established scientific approach of physicists.
We study harnessing quantum mechanical properties of nanostructures and light. We are motivated by wishing to better understand the physical world, as well as enabling novel types of technologies, including energy, information, metrology and imaging.
The JARA Institute for Quantum Information is a joined initiative of the RWTH Aachen University and of the Research Center Jülich. It combines the forces of theoretical and experimental research in quantum information science, with the overarching goal of contributing to the realization of large-scale quantum computation. Key research topics include semiconductor spin-qubits (physics and technology), quantum error correction, Majorana qubits and new principles for the implementation of quantum computation in noisy systems.
