Viola-Kusminskiy Research Group

Our group "Theory of hybrid systems for quantum technologies" is an independent research group funded by the Max Planck Society and located at the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light. The group started in January 2018. We are interested in studying the interaction between light and collective excitations in condensed matter systems at the micro/nanoscale.


Our recent interest lies in particular in optomagnonics systems, in which light is coupled coherently to magnetic excitations. This is an exciting line of research that brings together concepts of Condensed Matter and Quantum Optics, and it is promising for applications in new quantum technologies. In our group we explore, both analytically and computationally, how to manipulate, store, and transfer information in platforms involving optomagnonic systems.
