    Deterministic control of nanoantenna and single-photon emitter interaction at the nanoscale 220600 220919 221100 220900 The study of light-matter interaction at the nanoscale is a very promising field of research, providing ...
  • Wolter, Benjamin (Date of defense: 26-02-2018)
    One of the grand challenges of modern science is to image chemical reactions and biological functions while they are taking place. To realize these molecular movie, experimental techniques need to resolve the relevant ...
  • Prettico, Giuseppe (Date of defense: 18-01-2013)
    Quantum Information Theory (QIT) studies how information can be processed and transmitted when encoded on quantum states. Practically, it can be understood as the effort to generalize Classical Information Theory to the ...
  • Raventós Ribera, David (Date of defense: 15-04-2019)
    Understand and tame complex quantum mechanical systems to build quantum technologies is one of the most important scientific endeavour nowadays. In this effort, Atomic, molecular and Optical systems have clearly played a ...
  • Schmidt, Peter, 1989- (Date of defense: 16-04-2019)
    Transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) are semiconducting layered materials that can be isolated up to the limit of a single atomic layer. Next to graphene, they are some of the most intensively studied materials within ...
  • Aloy López, Albert (Date of defense: 16-07-2020)
    Entanglement and non-local correlations give rise to unprecedented phenomena with no classical analogue. As a result, they have settled themselves as fundamental properties in the study of quantum many-body systems, as ...
  • Weber, Peter (Date of defense: 02-12-2016)
    In recent years, mechanical resonators based on graphene have attracted considerable interest as nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS). Graphene NEMSs allow for exceptional properties such as high mechanical strength, high ...
  • Vidas, Luciana (Date of defense: 02-05-2019)
    The physics of transition-metal oxides presents a challenge to our current understanding of condensed matter physics. The main difficulty arises from a competition between electron-electron and electron-phonon interactions ...
  • Tirrito, Emanuele (Date of defense: 13-07-2020)
    For a long time, quantum states of matter have been successfully characterized by the Ginzburg-Landau formalism that was able to classify all different types of phase transitions. This view changed with the discovery of ...
  • Hernández Santana, Senaida (Date of defense: 12-04-2019)
    Quantum Mechanics was established as the theory of the microscopic world, which allowed to understand processes in atoms and molecules. Its emergence led to a new scientific paradigm that quickly spread to different research ...
  • Huembeli, Patrick (Date of defense: 25-03-2021)
    Research at the intersection of machine learning (ML) and quantum physics is a recent growing field due to the enormous expectations and the success of both fields. ML is arguably one of the most promising technologies ...
  • Urgell Flores, Carlos (Date of defense: 30-03-2021)
    Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have attracted the attention of the scientific community since their discovery in the 90s. They are an excellent material for the development of research fields as diverse as nanomechanics or quantum ...
  • Svozilík, Jiŕí (Date of defense: 17-10-2014)
    Non-classical correlations, usually referred as entanglement, are ones of the most studied and discussed features of Quantum Mechanics, since the initial introduction of the concept in the decade of 1930s. Even nowadays, ...
  • García de Arquer, Francisco Pelayo (Date of defense: 18-02-2015)
    The detection of light is of central importance in both fundamental science and applied technology. Photodetectors, which aim at transducing optical stimulus into measurable electrical signals, are ubiquitous to modern ...
  • De Bonis, Sergio Lucio (Date of defense: 06-02-2020)
