ERC grant for Marcus Huber

Marcus Huber finds new ways to link very different areas of physics such as quantum theory, complexity and thermodynamics. Quantum physics works very well, as long as you only want to explain small systems that consist of just a few particles. In contrast, large things are normally described using the laws of classical physics. But what happens when a quantum system (such as an atom) comes into contact with something large, such as a measuring device? This is one of the most puzzling questions in physics, to which no truly satisfactory answer has been found to date.

First programmable quantum sensor

Physicists led by Peter Zoller and Thomas Monz at the University of Innsbruck have designed the first programmable quantum sensor and tested it in the laboratory. To do so they applied techniques from quantum information processing to a measurement problem. The innovative method opens up new prospects for quantum sensors whose precision will be close to the limit set by the laws of nature.
