In our research we study entangled many-body states in systems of individually controlled atoms. We achieve this control by leveraging methods from quantum optics and atomic physics. This approach allows us to realize scalable quantum systems with applications in quantum simulation, quantum computation, and quantum information processing. 

Quantum computers and simulators have the potential to solve a wide range of problems more efficiently than classical computers. Cold atoms present a leading platform in this context, unparalleled in size and scalability. 

The preparation, control and readout of individual atoms was made possible with the advent of quantum gas microscopy, where high-resolution imaging techniques allow us to trap and address arrays of atoms on the single particle level. We aim at combining those techniques with the coherent light field of an optical cavity.This offers exciting prospects for probing many-body systems with tools and protocols from few-mode quantum optics.
