Faculty of Physics welcomes assistant professor Andreas Nunnenkamp


How can we create, control, and exploit quantum coherence in synthetic many-body systems? This and related questions are investigated by Andreas Nunnenkamp who joins as an assistant professor in the group “Quantum optics, Quantum nanophysics, and Quantum information“. In his research, Andreas Nunnenkamp employs among others methods from quantum control and many-body physics.

Andreas Nunnenkamp currently works on the interplay of interactions, topology, and disorder and their control via measurement, backaction, and dissipation. He aims at developing novel designs for quantum technologies and at contributing to a deeper understanding of the dynamics of many-body systems. He collaborates frequently with experimental groups in the fields of optomechanics, ultracold gases, superconducting circuits, and optomagnonics.
