FWF Quantum Austria Project Funded

Advancing modeling of spatially entangled transport dynamics of electrons

The FWF has accepted Josef Weinbub's proposal on "Wigner Transport Dynamics of Spatial Electron Entanglement" for the special research funding program Quantum Austria and the research will begin on July 1, 2023. In this project, a particle Wigner approach to model the transport dynamics of spatially entangled electrons in 2D systems will be developed. The modeling approach will be able to incorporate external electromagnetic fields and will provide an intuitive wave picture of the involved quantum transport processes. The research will enable new ideas for future nanoelectronic systems (e.g., 2D materials) and electron quantum optics systems (e.g., coupled wave guides, interferometers, electron detection).
