Physics Colloquium | Jochen Mannhart: Nonunitary Quantum Devices – Electronics at the Edge of the Quantum World –

Speaker:Jochen Mannhart, Chair Professor and Director Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research, Stuttgart.

 

Jochen Mannhart studied Physics at the University of Tübingen, receiving his diploma in 1986 and his PhD in 1987. Subsequently, he worked as a visiting scientist at the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights and as a Research Staff Member and Manager at the IBM Zurich Research Laboratory in Rüschlikon, Switzerland. From 1996 to 2011, he was a chaired professor at the Center for Electronic Correlations and Magnetism at Augsburg University. Since 2011 he is Director at the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research, Stuttgart, Head of the department“Solid State Quantum Electronics”and Scientific Member of the Max Planck Society.

 

His research interests focus on quantum devices built from complex electronic materials. The efforts of the teams he was working in resulted in the discovery and development of bicrystal Josephson junctions and SQUIDs, the enhancement of critical currents of high-Tc superconductors by grain alignment, which is the basis for the modern superconducting cables, the first imaging of atoms with subatomic resolution, and the fabrication of the first all-oxide FETs.

 

Jochen Mannhart has received numerous awards for his research, including the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz-Preis and the Europhysics Prize.

 

Title:

Nonunitary Quantum Devices

– Electronics at the Edge of the Quantum World –

 

Abstract:

In the fascinating transition regime between quantum mechanics and classical physics, the dynamics of electrons is open to the combined degrees of freedom of both worlds.

 

In this presentation, I will show that this transition regime accommodates a whole new category of electronic devices. These operate by using individual, inelastic scattering events to interrupt the coherent propagation of electrons. As I will demonstrate, by exceeding the constraints of classical physics and of quantum mechanics as given by Schrödinger’s equation, they offer stunning functionalities that cannot be achieved by any other means.

 

This work has been performed with Hans Boschker, Daniel Braak, and Philipp Bredol.
