Transport and Information in Quantum Systems

Understanding of Quantum Complex Phenomena plays a key role in the development of Quantum Technologies identified as one of the most strategic areas for future research and innovation.

In this research line, we are devoted to questions related to quantum transport for charge(nanoelectronics), spin (spintronics), energy (thermoelectrics) and information (quantum correlations), with a particular focus on nanostructures. Moreover, we investigate decoherence effects in complex environments, explore quantum probing, and emergent phenomena such as synchronization, with a focus on quantum correlations and thermodynamics and their impact on information processing.

At IFISC we manage both the QTD platform announcing events and positions among the networks of scientists working on quantum thermodynamics and the QTTS webpage, a society devoted to understanding the thermodynamics of quantum systems and quantum transport.
