 Research Topics
 Quantum Information Processing and Communication


    The two key structural elements of quantum mechanics quantum information processing and communication are the superposition principle and the exponential scaling of the state space with the number of subsystems (partitions). These elements combine into entanglement, one of the most distincive and counterintuitive feaures of quantum mechanics. The research of this research group is dedicated to a better understanding of this resource.
