SØREN GAMMELMARK gammelmark@phys.au.dk APRIL 2010 DEPARTMENT OF PHYSICS AND ASTRONOMY Why probe quantum many body systems? Interactions gives rise to complex phenomena Phase-transitions Collective effects Topological states of matter Measurements can produce interesting quantum states Squeezed spins Heralded single photon sources Light squeezing Measurements and feedback High-precision measurements, atomic clocks, gravitational wave detectors Combining measurements and interactions Can we get the best of both worlds? Can measurements help/stabilize complex phenomena? Can interacting quantum systems give better/more precise measurements?
