Welcome to the homepage of the Condensed Matter Theory and Quantum Computing Group of the University of Basel

Our group resides in the Department of Physics, Klingelbergstrasse 82, 4056 Basel, Switzerland. See the visitors information page for a detailed description on our location and how to get here. For more information on the department, the university, and the city of Basel, please visit the links section.

Our main research interests are within the field of condensed matter physics. Namely, we are concerned with topics such as electronic transport in mesoscopic devices and nanostructures, magnetic properties of such systems, superconductivity, ultracold atoms, and molecular magnetism. We are interested in the physical properties of systems which are candidates for 'qubits', the basic building blocks of a 'quantum computer'. We study questions related to quantum computing, such as the various mechanisms of relaxation and decoherence, physical and logical implementation of elementary quantum gates, or the creation of entangled states.
