QuCoLiMa (Quantum Cooperativity of Light and Matter) is a Collaborative Research Centre Transregio (TRR 306) of the universities

It intends to explore the distinctive traits of quantum cooperativity within a large variety of quantum platforms at the intersection of quantum optics and condensed matter. We aim at understanding what is the interplay of quantum interference and entanglement in the collective response of many-body quantum systems interacting with light. We will explore in particular the role of the quantum properties of radiation in establishing and mediating quantum cooperative phenomena in a variety of complex matter systems, entering the regime of many-body physics of quantum cooperative light-matter.

The summer 2022 program of the QuCoLiMaTalks is now online. The QuCoLiMaTalks take place, unless otherwise noted, Tuesdays during the semester at 12:00. With the summer semester, we would like to pass over to a format of the QuCoLiMa Talks as originally planned in the application of the TRR, ...

The first school QuCoLiMa Basics has been held at the University of Mainz from 03. – 07.04.2022. The school included introductory lectures to Quantum Optics, interactive sessions, a poster session, a town visit, lab visits and many interesting discussions! Abstract: QuCoLiMa is a collaboration...
