The “Cavity QED” group performs QND measurements by coupling Rydberg atoms to a microwave cavity. Such a coupling enables to experimentally generate “Schrödinger cats”, to study their decoherence and to demonstrate building blocks for quantum information processing systems.
The “Optomechanics and Quantum Measurements” group deals with quantum effects of radiation pressure and entanglement between light and micro- or nanomechanical resonators. Beyond the understanding of quantum limits in optical measurements, these research also have applications in high-sensitivity measurements such as gravitational-wave detection or to cool a macroscopic mechanical resonator down to its quantum ground state.
