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.

Physicists at MPL and FAU develop novel concept for detecting chiral molecules. In contrast to conventional mirrors, light can be reflected on surfaces known as meta surfaces without changing its polarization. This has now been proven by physicists at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnbe...

To support the most talented young scientists working in the field of quantum cooperativity of light and matter, the TRR 306 QuCoLiMa offered the QuCoLiMa Starting Grant endowed with 150,000 EUR and support within the QuCoLiMa structures (see call). Today, during the welcome of the International ...
