Jörg Schmiedmayer is Professor of Physics at the TU-Wien (Vienna University of Technology) He received his doctoral degree in nuclear physics from the TU-Wien (1987). After a postdoc in Vienna and Oak Ridge he changed to quantum physics and went as a research scientist to Harvard and MIT. In 1995 he joined A. Zeilinger in Innsbruck where he developed integrated matter-wave optics and the atom chip. Before coming back to the TU-Wien in 2007 he held a chair in experimental physics in Heidelberg. His research interests cover a wide range, from many-body quantum physics with ultracold atoms to interconnecting quantum systems from photons, atoms, and spins, and superconducting quantum circuits.
