European project LIMQUET: Light-matter interfaces for quantum enhanced technologies

LIMQUET (Light-Matter Interfaces for Quantum Enhanced Technologies) is a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (ITN) project funded by the European Union started in January 2018. It is coordinated by the University of Bourgogne Franche-Comté in France and the network is composed of academic and industrial partners: the University of Oxford (UK), the University of Sofia (Bulgaria), the Technische Universitat Darmstadt (Germany), the University of Essex (UK), the Ecole Polytechnique Fédéral de Lausanne (Switzerland), the companies QuTools GMBH & Qubig (Germany), TeemPhotonics & Aurea Technologies (France) and the L2n-UTT.

Structured around a team of quantum, optical and material physicists, the project aims at training high-level young researchers through the development of innovative techniques to interface light and matter at the quantum level using atoms, nanostructures and photons, with applications in optics and quantum information processing. The efforts are focused on topics such as the creation of light-matter interfaces at the quantum level through the realisation of quantum networks using atoms, ions, and photons ; interfacing light with light, in particular for light storage ; adapting strategies originally developed in quantum optics to an integration into designed nanostructures or the development of robust tools for quantum control and photonics.
