Dynamics and Control
At the Center for Computational Quantum Physics, we are developing the conceptual basis, theoretical formalism and computational tools needed to use the quantum nature of light to understand and control quantum phenomena in complex systems.
We are discovering the general principles that describe and control systems far from equilibrium and orchestrating the behavior of electrons and atoms to create new phenomena and states of matter, while providing a detailed and efficient microscopic approach for the ab initio description and control of the dynamics of decoherence.
