  • Block, Alexander (Date of defense: 06-09-2019)
    Heat transport in solids is one of the oldest problems in physics, dating back to the earliest formulations of thermodynamics. The classical laws of heat conduction are valid as long as the observed time and length scales ...
  • Bourdoncle, Boris (Date of defense: 13-02-2019)
    The twentieth century was marked by two scientific revolutions. On the one hand, quantum mechanics questioned our understanding of nature and physics. On the other hand, came the realisation that information could be treated ...
  • Laparra Cuervo, Lara (Date of defense: 28-03-2018)
    The arrival of super-resolution techniques has driven researchers to explore biological areas that were unreachable before. Such techniques not only allowed the improvement of spatial resolution in images but also the ...
  • León Montiel, Roberto de Jesús (Date of defense: 30-09-2014)
    For many years, the fields of quantum optics and biology have rarely shared a common path. In quantum optics, most of the concepts and techniques developed over the years stand for systems where only a few degrees of freedom ...
  • Charalambous, Christos (Date of defense: 31-01-2020)
    Quantum Brownian motion is one of the most prominent examples of an open quantum system, a system which cannot be treated in isolation from its environment. The simplest method to study the dynamics of a system undergoing ...
  • Lampo, Aniello (Date of defense: 02-10-2018)
    Quantum Brownian motion represents a paradigmatic model of open quantum system, namely a system which cannot be treated as an isolated one, because of the unavoidable interaction with the surrounding environment. In this ...
  • Albrecht, Boris (Date of defense: 01-12-2015)
    Optical quantum memories are important devices in quantum information science. In particular, they are building blocks of quantum repeater architectures that have been proposed to increase the range of quantum communication ...
  • Maring, Nicolas (Date of defense: 13-09-2018)
    The ability to control the optical frequency of quantum state carriers (i.e. photons) is an important functionality for future quantum networks. It allows all matter quantum systems - nodes of the network - to be compatible ...
  • Zamora, Alejandro (Date of defense: 15-12-2014)
    The study of ultracold atoms constitutes one of the hottest areas of atomic, molecular, and optical physics and quantum optics. The experimental and theoretical achievements in the last three decades in the control and ...
  • Pozas Kerstjens, Alejandro (Date of defense: 15-10-2019)
    Quantum theory, as counter-intuitive as a theory can get, has turned out to make predictions of the physical world that match observations so precisely that it has been described as the most accurate physical theory ever ...
  • Máttar Flores, Alejandro (Date of defense: 17-10-2017)
    According to recent estimates, 10^18 bytes of data are generated on a daily basis around the globe. Our information society urges for radical solutions to treat such data deluge. By exploiting fundamental key elements of ...
  • Distante, Emanuele (Date of defense: 24-03-2017)
    Nonlinear optics at the single-photon level enables deterministic photonphoton interaction, a long-standing goal in quantum photonics science. Besides its implication in fundamental aspects of physics, this would unlock ...
  • Rieländer, Daniel (Date of defense: 24-11-2016)
    This PhD thesis is in the scope of experimental quantum communication. It deals with correlated photon pairs of which one photon is stored in a solid state device, while the other photon is at telecom wavelength. Quantum ...
  • Cabrera Córdova, César Raymundo (Date of defense: 10-10-2018)
    In this thesis, we report on the design and construction of a quantum simulator experiment using quantum gases in Spain. This experiment exploits mixtures of the three isotopes of potassium, which give access in an original ...
  • Colangelo, Giorgio (Date of defense: 16-12-2016)
    This thesis describes quantum measurements of an ensemble of cold rubidium-87 atoms. We extend the covariance matrix formalism to spin-1 systems, including effects of decoherence, losses due to probing and atom number ...
  • Kutluer, Kutlu (Date of defense: 23-10-2017)
    A photonic quantum memory (QM) is a device that has the capability of storing a quantum state of light and retrieving back after a controlled time. It is an important element in quantum information science and is, among ...
  • Lucivero, Vito Giovanni (Date of defense: 14-10-2016)
    Nowadays there is a considerable progress in optical magnetometry and spin noise spectroscopy, which use magnetically-sensitive atomic ensembles and optical read-out, approaching the limits set by quantum mechanics. In ...
  • Raissi, Zahra (Date of defense: 08-10-2020)
    Studying entanglement is essential for our understanding of such diverse areas as high-energy physics, condensed matter physics, and quantum optics. Moreover, entanglement allows us to surpass classical physics and ...
  • 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 ...
