About us

The “QCAT” Research Group carries out interdisciplinary studies at the border of quantum optics and condensed matter. Our goal is discovering inspiring physical phenomena, investigating the capabilities of modern platforms and finding their potential applications in quantum technologies. The Group has a theoretical background but tightly collaborates with experimentalists. Our domain comprises systems built with integrated optical circuits and superconducting photon detectors, optical microcavities and two-dimensional nanomaterials (e.g. graphene). We specialize in numerical tools.

The Group is led by Dr. habil. Magdalena Stobińska. In 2017 she received a Foundation for Polish Science “First Team” research project and moved her Group to the Faculty of Physics at the University of Warsaw. We are starting to perform our own experiments and the Faculty of Physics UW offers great possibilities of realization of these plans. Currently, the Group comprises two postdocs, two Ph.D. students and a M.Sc. student.

Please meet our pet Erwin, the Pallas Cat (Manul) living in the Warsaw ZOO.
