University Research Platform: QuNaBioS, Quantum Phenomena and Nanoscale Biological Systems
This project is a joint venture between the Quantum Nanobiology Team (QNB) of Alipasha Vaziri and the Quantum Nanophysics Team (QNP) of Markus Arndt.It was selected by the University of Vienna to enable high-risk/high-gain research in the largely unexplored and interdisciplinary scientific territory between the two fields.
ERC Advanced Grant PROBIOTIQUS
PROBIOTIQUS aims at
Processing biomolecular targets for interferometric quantum experiments.
We develop new source, detector and quantum control methods for the exploration
of quantum coherence physics at the interface to the life sciences and for quantum interference enhanced physical chemistry of biomolecules.
PI: Markus Arndt
EU ICT FET Open: NANOQUESTFIT
NANOQUESTFIT will prepare nanoparticles in highly non-classical quantum states and utilize them to test the linearity of quantum physics over mesoscopic distances and time scales in a mass range that has remained hitherto unexplored. This goal will be realized in an interdisciplinary effort of European experts in quantum optics, nanotechnology, chemistry, and cluster physics. NANOQUESTFIT lays the scientific ground for a better understanding of practical and fundamental limits of future quantum technologies and will generate the basis for new quantum-enhanced sensing devices with matter waves composed of atoms, molecules and nanoparticles. PI and Coordinator: Markus Arndt
DK Complex Quantum Systems
The Vienna Doctoral Program on Complex Quantum Systems (CoQuS) selects annually students from an international pool of applicants, based on their academic excellence, scientific success and ambition. The programme is supported by the Austrian Science Funds FWF, the University of Vienna and the Vienna University of Technology.
Speaker: Markus Arndt (Uni Vienna), since 2007 - 2013
Vice-Speaker: Jörg Schmiedmayer (TU Vienna) since 2007 - 2013
In 2008 Markus Arndt received the Wittgenstein Award of the Ministry of Science and the Austrian Science Funds FWF for his research in Quantum Nanophysics. The programme runs for five years .
START Prize project
In 2001 Markus Arndt received the START Award of the Ministry of Science and the Austrian Science Funds FWF for his research on molecule interferometry. Run time: 3 + 3 years.
