Who we are and how to reach us

About us

The Institute for Theoretical Physics III combines two chairs in theoretical physics with focus on quantum many-body phenomena and strongly correlated systems. The institute provides expertise in the fields of quantum optics, condensed matter physics, quantum information theory, as well as atomic and molecular physics. We combine analytical as well as numerical methods and explore machine learning approaches for the study of strongly interacting quantum systems. We are driven by fundamental scientific questions and strive to find applications in quantum information processing and to harvest quantum systems as a resource for novel technologies.

The Institute is a member of the center of Integrated Quantum Science and Technology (IQST), a joint research structure between the University of Stuttgart, Ulm University, and the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research.

Büchler Group

The research topics of the Büchler group are the exploration of quantum many-body phenomena in systems realized with cold atomic and molecular gases as well as photons interacting with matter. 

Scheurer Group

The research of the Scheurer group deals with the theoretical description of the emergent phenomena that arise in interacting quantum many-body systems as a result of competing interactions, disorder, and topology. We use analytical as well as numerical techniques and explore the potential of machine-learning to address problems of many-body physics.
