# Quantum Optics Theory at ICFO

The group works on a very broad spectrum of problems, from standard quantum optics, through physics of matter, to quantum information theory, and physics of ultracold atoms.

The group will continue tradition of the Hannover group and work on a very broad spectrum of problems; from standard quantum optics, through physics of matter in ultra-intense and ultra-short laser pulses, to quantum information theory (mathematical foundation and implementations in atomic, quantum optical and condensed matter systems), and physics of ultracold atoms (from weakly interacting systems, non-linear atom optics) to strongly correlated systems, lattice gases, Hubbard models etc.
