Center for Quantum Science

Basic research in many areas of physics and chemistry is dominated by the phenomena of quantum mechanics. Due to enormous progress in structuring, manipulation and analysis on an atomic level, controllable quantum phenomena for technological applications have also moved to the center of attention.

Within the faculty of mathematics and the natural sciences in Tübingen there are strong and diverse research activities in quantum science. The Center for Quantum Science is platform to bring these activities together and to stimulate synergies between the different research groups. Our research topics include superconductivity, nano-technology, ultracold atoms and their interaction with light and quantum many-body physics. Our interdisciplinary competence in quantum science enables us to combine different experimental platforms and theoretical concepts. This opens unique perspectives for our research activities and their application in novel quantum technologies.
