Physics of materials and devices, with applications to quantum computing, superconductors, magnetism, and spintronics. Group leader: Prof. Rogério de Sousa.

The "Theory of light-matter and quantum phenomena" group focuses on theoretical research on elementary and collective quantum effects, at the crossroads between light-matter physics, condensed matter, and ultra-cold quantum gases.

Research is developed in close collaboration with several national and international experimental groups, and are motivated by both fundamental and applicative challenges in quantum physics:

We investigate the connections between foundations of Quantum Physics and Computer Science, our research focuses on information storing and processing by means of quantum physical systems (e.g. photons, electrons, trapped ions, superconducting circuits). The covered research topics range from fundamental aspects of Quantum Mechanics to technological applications.

We work on the following topics:
