Markus’ research activities are in the hybridisation of quantum technologies for the implementation of quantum networks. In particular, he is interested in the engineering of quantum interfaces between photons (flying qubits) and atoms or ions (stationary qubits) to develop and demonstrate novel techniques for secure transmission and storage of quantum information.
Additionally, he is developing novel quantum light sources based on quantum dots and their spectral manipulation, allowing high repetition rates of quantum optics experiments and low-loss transfer via optical fibre, but also the generation of hybrid entanglement between e.g. a spin in a quantum dot and a photon.
