  • Padrón Brito, María Auxiliadora (Date of defense: 08-04-2021)
    Photons are good candidates for carrying quantum information because they are very stable particles: they interact weakly with the medium and barely with each other. However, this has drawbacks when you want to process ...
  • Abellán Sánchez, Carlos (Date of defense: 19-06-2018)
    Randomness is one of the most intriguing, inspiring and debated topics in the history of the world. It appears every time we wonder about our existence, about the way we are, e.g. Do we have free will? Is evolution a result ...
  • Hauke, Philipp Hans-Jürgen (Date of defense: 05-04-2013)
    Many outstanding problems in quantum physics, such as high-Tc superconductivity or quark confinement, are still - after decades of research - awaiting commonly accepted explanations. One reason is that such systems are ...
  • Marchena Martín-Francés, Miriam (Date of defense: 14-06-2018)
    The combination of unique properties -high electrical mobility, thermal conductivity, transparency and mechanical flexibility- make graphene promising for a wide variety of applications, including transparent electrodes, ...
  • Noyan, Mehmet Alican (Date of defense: 23-06-2017)
    Liquid and solid repellent surfaces are key to many industries. For example, construction industry benefits from self-cleaning windows, cements, paints, roof tiles, and corrosion resistant surfaces, while easy-to-clean, ...
  • Guerini de Souza, Leonardo (Date of defense: 29-01-2018)
    This PhD thesis is focused on the quantum measurement simulability problem, that is, deciding whether a given measurement can be simulated when only a restricted subset of measurements is accessible. We provide an operational ...
  • Maffei, Maria (Date of defense: 29-01-2019)
    Differently from the majority of the other phases of matter, which are characterized by local order parameters, the topological phases are characterized by integer or semi-integer numbers, the topological invariants, which ...
  • Palacios Álvarez, Silvana (Date of defense: 31-07-2017)
    This work reports on the construction of a new-generation system capable to create single-mode spinor Bose-Einstein condensates of 87Rb, and non-destructively probe them using optical Faraday rotation. This system brings ...
  • Schädler, Kevin Gerd (Date of defense: 22-05-2018)
    Photonics aims to manipulate light by controlling its interactions with matter to enable novel optical technologies for communication, information processing and sensing. Current efforts strive to enter the regime of quantum ...
  • Gündoğan, Mustafa (Date of defense: 22-10-2015)
    Optical quantum memories (QMs) are one of the fundamental building blocks in quantum information science (QIS). They might find important use in quantum communication and computation applications. Rare-earth ions (REIs) ...
  • Borovkova, Olga (Date of defense: 11-10-2013)
    Optical solitons provide unique opportunities for the control of light‐bylight. Today, the field of soliton formation in natural materials is mature, as the main properties of the possible soliton states are well understood. ...
  • Steinlechner, Fabian (Date of defense: 14-12-2015)
    The nonlocal correlations of entangled systems are a feature inherent to quantum theory that is fundamentally at odds with our common-sense notions of realism and locality. Additionally, entanglement is an essential resource ...
  • Beian, Mussie (Date of defense: 22-06-2016)
    Spatially indirect excitons, being composite bosons, are attractive candidates to explore correlated many-body systems. They possess an inherent large electric dipole, a four-fold spin manifold, and can be studied via the ...
  • Remesh, Vikas (Date of defense: 08-06-2020)
    The study of light-driven physical processes generated in nanomaterials require shorter (in time, or broader in frequency) laser pulses with techniques to tailor its phase and temporal/spectral characteristics at the ...
  • Gellings, Esther (Date of defense: 21-02-2020)
    At room temperature, individual molecules can be found in different conformations due to intrinsic and extrinsic factors which are reflected in spectral variability. When detecting single molecules, the ensemble average ...
  • Zielińska, Joanna Ada (Date of defense: 19-03-2018)
    This thesis studies different designs of optical parametric oscillators as sources of atom-resonant quantum light resonant with the rubidium D1 line.We analyze the mode structure and filtering techniques in a conventional ...
  • Marro Sánchez, Mònica (Date of defense: 12-07-2013)
    Since its discovery in 1928, Raman spectroscopy (RS) has produced a revolution in the fields of analytical chemistry and molecular detection. Thanks to the latest technical advances, the expectations of the applicability ...
  • Aviles-Espinosa, Rodrigo (Date of defense: 27-03-2013)
    The requirement for imaging living structures with higher contrast and resolution has been covered by the inherent advantages offered by nonlinear microscopy (NLM). However, to achieve its full potential there are still ...
  • Suárez Rojas, Noslen (Date of defense: 23-01-2018)
    In this thesis, we develop a general theory to describe the dynamics of electrons that are ionized when an atom or molecule is exposed to a strong low frequency laser field. Our approach extends and improves the well-established ...
  • Alcaraz Iranzo, David (Date of defense: 23-06-2020)
    Graphene is the first of the 2D-material family. It is formed by carbon atoms arranged in a honeycomb lattice, which confers it intriguing physical properties that are still being discovered nowadays. A fundamental advantage ...
