Single-Photon Microwave Devices: era of quantum optics outside cavities
ID: 278117
Start date: 2012-01-01, End date: 2016-12-31
The past couple of years have witnessed the rise of on-chip quantum optics. This has been enabled by the fabrication of high-finesse superconducting resonators made out of coplanar waveguides, and by the coupling of these resonators to superconducting quantum bits, qubits. Th...

Mesoscopic heattronics: thermal and nonequilibrium effects and fluctuations in nanoelectronics
ID: 240362
Start date: 2010-01-01, End date: 2015-12-31
Few systems in nature are entirely in equilibrium. Out of equilibrium, there are heat currents, and different degrees of freedom or parts of studied systems may be described by entirely different temperatures if the concept of temperature is at all well defined. In this proje...

Riddle of light induced degradation in silicon photovoltaics
ID: 307315
Start date: 2013-01-01, End date: 2017-12-31
The sun provides enough energy in one minute to supply the world's energy needs for one year. The grand challenge is to turn this enormous energy potential into electricity in a cost-efficient way. So far, silicon has been most successful at this – but we are still very far a...

Physically-based Virtual Acoustics
[PROJECT] PHDVIRTA - Physically-based Virtual Acoustics
ID: 203636
Start date: 2008-07-01, End date: 2013-06-30
The objective of the project is to find new methods for quality evaluation and modeling of room acoustics. Room acoustics has been studied over 100 years, but, e.g., the relation between objective attributes and subjective measures is not fully understood yet. This project wi...

Technologies and psychophysics of spatial sound
ID: 240453
Start date: 2009-09-01, End date: 2014-08-31
Spatial audio is a field, which investigates technologies to capture and reproduce sound in a way that the spatial properties of it are either preserved or modified depending on application. For example, modern surround sound techniques try to reproduce the sound scene percei...

Quantifying the atmospheric implications of the solid phase and phase transitions of secondary organic aerosols
ID: 335478
Start date: 2014-02-01, End date: 2019-01-31
In our ground-breaking paper published in Nature we showed, that the atmospheric Secondary Organic Aerosol (SOA) particles formed in boreal forest can be amorphous solid in their physical phase. Our result has already re-directed the SOA related research. In the several follo...

Understanding the structure and stability of heavy and superheavy elements
ID: 203481
Start date: 2008-09-01, End date: 2014-02-28
"The aim of the project is to further our understanding of the structure and stability of atomic nuclei at the extreme upper end of the chart of the nuclides. One of the major goals of contemporary Nuclear Physics experiments is to locate and chart the fabled superheavy eleme...
