Attosecond Electron Processes in Solids (ATTOTRON)

Start date: Oct 1, 2012, End date: Mar 31, 2015,

Electronic population transfer in solids constitutes the core of modern silicon based technology and is thus the cornerstone of machine intelligence and communication technology. Since the discovery of the semiconductor’s ability to rectify electric currents in 1874 the quest for a general understanding of the micro- and macroscopic behavior of electricity has driven efforts in basic science and i ...

"Worldwide there is great excitement about two new ultrafast XUV/x-ray sources that are presently coming available. Attosecond XUV pulses by high-harmonic generation (HHG) will now allow for the first time to “make movies” of ultrafast electron motion, and thereby to investigate photo-chemical processes beyond the Born-Oppenheimer limit. At the same time, XUV/x-ray Free Electron Lasers (FELs) base ...

Attosecond Dynamics On Interfaces and Solids (ADONIS)

Start date: Oct 1, 2008, End date: Sep 30, 2013,

... electronics, information processing, photovoltaics, and optical nano-structuring. The purpose of this project is to investigate phenomena like the temporal evolution of direct photoemission, interference effects in resonant photoemission, fast adsorbate-substrate charge transfer, and electronic dynamics in supramolecular assemblies, in a series of experiments in order to overcome the temporal limi ...

Ultra-high-Q Physics: Towards single molecules and phonons (SiMP)

Start date: Sep 1, 2008, End date: Dec 31, 2012,

The proposed research program builds on the previously developed ultra-high-Q monolithic micro-resonators by the applicant during his dissertation at the “California Institute of Technology”. These micro-resonators offer unprecedented confinement of light in micro-scale volumes for extended amounts of time and have opened many lab-on-chip applications ranging from nonlinear optics, quantum optics ...

Quantum Engineering via Dissipation (QUEVADIS)

Start date: Jun 1, 2009, End date: Sep 30, 2012,

Due to the ongoing miniaturization of devices, one of the central challenges of the 21st century's technology will be to handle quantum effects at the nanoscale. A first fundamental paradigm shift happened in the mid '90s when it was realized that quantum effects, which from the traditional point of view put fundamental limits on the possible miniaturization, could be exploited to do information t ...

Nanodesigning of Atomic and MolEcular QUAntum Matter (NAME-QUAM)

Start date: Jan 1, 2009, End date: Apr 30, 2012,

The Project investigates ultracold atom/molecule quantum matter technology for quantum information computational tasks. Our efforts concentrate on atoms/molecules confined in periodic nanostructures, either externally imposed by optical lattices, or self-generated by atomic/molecular interactions. Parallel quantum processing in periodic nanostructures is expected to lead to significant advances in ...

Quantum Optomechanics using Monolithic Micro-Resonators (QUOM)

Start date: Feb 15, 2008, End date: Dec 14, 2009,

"Research groups working on mechanical systems ranging in size from nanometer-scale oscillators or centimeter-scale optical cavities to kilometer-scale gravity wave detectors are all independently approaching a regime, where the observation of quantum mechanical phenomena with mechanical objects might become observable. These results have been catalyzed by the recent development of a novel laser c ...
