Lay summary
We carry out theoretical studies on various types of solid state systems: on the one hand, these are quantum coherent systems such as superconducting metals, superfluid bosonic and fermionic gases, and artificial structures such as quantum Josephson junction arrays. We are interested in novel phases and (quantum) phase transitions where these materials undergo a drastic change in their behavior, e.g. ordered versus disordered phases or mobile versus immobile phases. Furthermore, we study topological excitations such as vortices and systems of vortices; these define an interesting soft-matter system with similarities to polymer physics. When subjected to quenched disorder, these systems exhibit highly non-trivial statistical (glassy) properties. Our studies are useful in the context of applications of novel materials, e.g., superconducting transport. Our second field of interest is mesoscopic physics. Here we study theoretically the transport properties (average current, noise, full counting statistics, etc.) in small mesoscopic devices (normal-metallic and/or superconducting structures) and investigate basic quantum phenomena such as entanglement generation, detection, and conversion. Potential applications of this research is in devices for (quantum) information processing.

We carry out theoretical studies on various types of solid state systems: on the one hand, these are quantum coherent systems such as superconducting metals, superfluid bosonic and fermionic gases, and quantum Josephson junction arrays. We are interested in novel phases and (quantum) phase transitions where these materials undergo a drastic change in behavior, e.g. ordered versus disordered or mobile versus immobile phases. Furthermore, we study topological excitations such as vortices and systems of vortices; these define an interesting soft-matter system with similarities to polymer physics. When subjected to quenched disorder, these systems exhibit highly non-trivial statistical (glassy) properties. These studies are useful in the context of applications of novel materials, e.g., superconducting transport.Our second field of interest is mesoscopic physics. Here we study theoretically the transport properties (average current, noise, full countingstatistics, etc.) in small mesoscopic devices (normal-metallic and/or superconducting) and study basic quantum phenomena such as entanglement generation, detection, and conversion, with the goal to understand their potential as devices for quantum information processing.
