QTeQ’s works on open-system dynamics lead the way!

At QTeQ, we are strongly interested in the features of open-system dynamics. In particular, we work on the relation between system-environment correlations and the onset of non-Markovianity. Our most recent efforts have now been published as a letter in EPL and a Rapid Communication in Phys. Rev. A. Both are the results of joint efforts with Kavan Modi and Cesar Rodriguez-Rosario, invaluable collaborators and friends of the family! Details of the works can be found in

First joint paper by Andre’ and Mauro

Andre’ and Mauro publish their first joint paper in Phys. Rev. A. This is also the first one by Andre’ as a full-time QTeQ member! The work deals with the combination of non-linear processes responsible for second-harmonic generation and optomechanics, one of the strong research themes of the group. Last but not least, the paper is the first joint work with Marco Barbieri (University of Oxford), who is an invaluable collaborator and a friend of the family!
