Vincenzo Tamma is currently the Founding Director of the Quantum Science and Technology Hub and a reader in physics at the University of Portsmouth, UK, after being a group leader at the Institute of Quantum Physics at Ulm University, Germany. His Ph.D. research at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County and at the University of Bari Aldo Moro, Italy, was recognized with the Giampietro Puppi Award for the best Italian Ph.D. thesis in physics and astrophysics in 2007–2009. His research aims for a deeper understanding of the fundamental physics at the interface of quantum mechanics, quantum information, complexity theory, atomic physics, and general relativity, as well as at boosting the real-world implementation of quantum-enhanced technologies for computing and sensing applications.
An innovative matter-wave lens exploiting atomic interactions is able to slow the expansion of a Bose-Einstein condensate in three dimensions, thus reaching unprecedented ultralow temperatures. Read More »
