ERC Advanced Grant awarded to three UvA professors

Universiteit Ams

The projects: Prof. Jean-Sébastien Caux (Institute of Physics) – DYNAMINT: Dynamics of Probed, Pulsed, Quenched and Driven Integrable Quantum Systems In atomic, condensed matter and nanophysics settings, quantum matter is nowadays routinely pushed beyond the traditional low-energy/linear response/thermal equilibrium textbook paradigms. Recent experiments have shown that by cleverly ‘hitting’ a system in the right way, one can create states with novel and useful properties. The problem is that currently-available theoretical methods are unable... Read More »

A new approach to the quantum measurement problem

Universiteit Ams

Relaxation of sub-ensembles Understanding the quantum measurement process requires describing the measured system and the measurement apparatus as a compound quantum system governed by the rules of quantum statistical mechanics. The dynamical process that this system undergoes appears to be a relaxation to thermodynamic equilibrium. The final state thus reached yields information about a large statistical ensemble of runs but does not describe individual runs of the measurement. The authors note that decompositions of this final state may gene... Read More »
