Kobenhavns Universitet (UCPH)

Prof. Albert Schliesser

The University of Copenhagen, founded in 1479, is Denmark's oldest University and has produced eight Nobel laureates ranking it as the best Scandinavian University, and among the top Universities in Europe. Its Physics Department, the Niels Bohr Institute, is named after one of the founding fathers of Quantum Mechanics and has strong experimental and theoretical research both in Quantum Electronics and Quantum Optics.

The Quantop Center, headed by Prof. E. S. Polzik, follows a broad research program aiming to explore quantum effects at the interface between light and matter, including non-classical light, spin ensembles in hot and cold atomic vapours, and mechanical systems.

The laboratory of Prof. Albert Schliesser focuses on hybrid systems involving nano- and micromechanical oscillators in the quantum regime specifically studying new aspects of quantum measurements, decoherence mechanisms, and control and conversion of mechanical quantum states.
