Research in brief

We have pioneered one of the major driving forces of quantum biology, namely the study of the fundamental quantum dynamics of radical-ion-pair reactions. We continue our research on quantum sensors and quantum noise relevant to precision magnetometry with atomic vapors. Currently we are developing a new research direction in neuroscience.



On the conceptual side members of our group get trained in quantum physics, atomic, molecular and optical physics, spin dynamics, physical chemistry, biophysics and advanced numerical simulations. They also learn to perform and analyze sophisticated experiments with lasers and optics, electronics and vacuum systems.



Our Lab is hosted at the Department of Physics of the University of Crete and is part of the newly established Crete Center for Quantum Complexity and Nanotechnology. Our research interests revolve around quantum science in a wide range of contexts, from atomic physics and quantum metrology to biophysics and quantum biology.
