WMI organizes the 6th Ph.D. Student Workshop on Solid State Quantum Information Processingat the Glocknerhaus, Austria.

Due to the interdisciplinary character of the research field and the involvement of four universities, the stimulation of the direct exchange and interaction between the the Ph.D. students working in the different research projects of the Collaborative Research Center 631 (CRC 631) has been recognized as an important task from the beginning. Therefore, CRC 631 regularly organizes two- to three-day workshops for the Ph.D. students without their supervisors. The 6th Ph.D. Student Workshop on Solid State Quantum Information Processing was organized by Hans Hübl of WMI, supported by the Ph.D. students Alexander Baust (WMI) and Stefan Lichtmannsecker (WSI). It was taking place at the Glocknerhaus located in the stunning scenery of the Hohe Tauern national park in Austria. This workshop particularly aimed at deepening cooperation amongst all Ph.D. students investigating quantum systems in the greater Munich area. Therefore, it was jointly organized with the Research Area 1 on Quantum Nanophysics of the Excellence Cluster Nanosystems Initiative Munich (NIM).

The workshop topics ranged from quantum optics, circuit quantum electrodynamics with artificial atoms, semiconductor quantum systems, opto- and electromechanics to theoretical aspects of quantum information processing. It also was including tutorial talks providing a fundamental introduction into the topics of the main research directions of CRC 631 and NIM. In addition, the Ph.D. and master students from six universities and research institutions reported on the progress of the research work to their fellow students and discussed future directions of their work. The workshop turned out to be very fruitful for the interaction among the Ph.D. students and the mutual information both on their research work and practical problems. Moreover, due to the tutorial style of the presentations during the workshops, those Ph.D. students that had joined CRC 631 or NIM only recently were able to get a broad overview on the research activities going on within this coordinated research projects.
