Müller Group



Our research in theoretical quantum physics is mainly centred on scalable quantum computation and quantum simulation, with a focus on the development of implementations in atomic, molecular and optical (AMO) systems. The research brings together concepts from various fields such as quantum computation and algorithms, computer science, statistical physics, quantum optics and atomic physics.

One principle avenue of research over the last years has been on topological quantum computing and error correction with trapped ions, as well as the study of topological quantum phases in condensed-matter and cold atom systems. We enjoy working at the interface between theory and experiment, and in particular bridging the gap between theoretical models and experimental implementations.

An overview of the main research topics and ongoing projects can be found here. If you are interested in joining our group, read the job announcement below.
