Markus Aspelmeyer

Markus Aspelmeyer is Professor at the Faculty of Physics of the University of Vienna and Scientific Director at the Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information (IQOQI) Vienna of the Austrian Academy of Sciences. His research combines the development of new quantum technologies with fundamental quantum experiments. The main research activities of the group include quantum optical control of levitated solid-state objects, the exploration of their quantum properties for fundamental questions and novel quantum technology platforms, as well as precision measurements of ultra-weak gravitational forces. Their main motivation is to explore the interface between quantum physics and gravity with new experimental platforms.
