Individual Research Cooperation between Theoretical Quantum Physics Group and Czech Technical University, Prague

Since 2000, Prof. Gernot Alber (CYSEC PI and Head of the Theoretical Quantum Physics Group) and his team have been working closely with the team led by Prof. Igor Jex at the Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering at the Czech Technical University in Prague. This cooperation focuses on the area of quantum optics and quantum information theory with a particular emphasis on open system dynamics, quantum networks and quantum communication. Together with members of Prof. Jex's group, including Dr. Jaroslav Novotny, the two teams engage in an exploration of characteristic features of quantum correlations. There is a mutual exchange on these topics via regular, in-person meetings.

The cooperation has been supported by the DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) and by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation and has led to several joint publications.
