Menno Poot appointed as professor for Quantum Technologies
2017-07-31 – Menno Poot joins TUM’s Physics Department as professor for Quantum Technologies. He experimentally studies quantum effects in nanoscale systems and investigates how these can be utilized for quantum technology. The focus is on extremely sensitive optomechanical techniques to measure mechanical systems that are close to their quantum ground state. Another research topic are photonic circuits where quantum information is encoded in the path that single photons take. Advanced nano-fabrication techniques are used to design, create, and measure chips with quantum functionality.
