Composition of the Consortium
The consortium is formed of eight young researchers who all have an excellent track record in their respective field and are recognized experts within their communities: ATI and USD have conducted breakthrough experiments in the domain of coupled atom-photon systems. AAR and UNOTT combine in-depth theoretical expertise in the characterization and exploitation of atomic non-linearities for photon control and the realization of coupled light-matter systems. USD and UNOTE accumulate state-of-the-art knowledge on cold atomic physics. UROS and FBH are world-leaders in the fabrication of advanced optical chips for research purposes as well as technological applications. Finally, UROS and UVIE are at the forefront of research concerning the characterization and control of photons on integrated chip environments. The research program of ErBeStA is designed such that it maximally draws from this unique combination of complementary expertise.
