Integrated quantum optics using Site-controlled QUAntum Dots and molecules
Experiments demonstrating quantum effects are nowadays routine in physics laboratories. However, to get useful quantum technology, we need to harness these effects with very high precision. Designing such systems requires a precise understanding, at various complexity levels, of the systems that we are designing and of their interaction with the environment and noise sources. Especially the latter is a recent concern. This project aims at applying model reduction techniques to this end.
Quantum simulators are ideally controlled systems for simulating complex quantum matter. Experimental efforts to implement this idea are being pursued in particular in the field of ultra-cold atoms, trapped ions, superconducting circuits, photonic and NMR systems. This project focuses on a new implementation using micro-fabricated mesoscopic superconducting circuits to simulate the Bose-Hubbard model.
Current computing systems are based on a very limited set of machine precisions (32 or 64 bits). Language, compilers and libraries offer little precision control. As a consequence, accuracy is at often an after-the-fact consideration. Computations may be either wrong, or on the contrary much too accurate, in both cases wasteful.
Rheology of dense Suspensions : development and implementation of New Numerical methods, taking close range interactions into account – RheoSuNN
Consideration of short-range interactions (lubrication and friction) for numerical simulations of dense suspensions of non-spherical particles.
This project aims at exploring representations for the modeling, visualization and processing of both macro geometry and control fields (multimaterial and microstructures) within the authoring pipeline for additive manufacturing.
Fundamental Improvement of the High Temperature Properties of ?-TiAl Alloys by Additions of Substitutional and Interstitial Elements – Hi-TiAl
The Hi-TiAl project aims at a better understanding of the high temperature mechanisms in advanced TiAl alloys, providing the basis of future alloy design. A special attention will be paid to the role of substitutional and interstitial alloying elements on the constituting phases and physical processes activated during deformation. The obtained results, although of fundamental character, can then be used to design even more advanced aero-engines, which support both industry and environment.
INDEX studies efficient incremental solutions to combinatorial optimisation problems occurring in design of computer experiments. Modern industrial processes often resort to complex simulation models whose computational cost requires substitution by a surrogate of much lesser complexity. The surrogate quality depends on the set of simulation inputs (the design) used for its construction. The objective is to propose an ordered design which is nearly optimal when stopped at any point.
