Florian Mintert studied physics in Aachen and Hamburg, where he got his diploma in 2000 with a thesis on radio-frequency control of trapped ions. During his PhD project in Dresden he worked on entanglement dynamics in dissipative quantum systems. In his postdoctoral research in Rio de Janeiro and Cambridge (MA) he devised a new approach for the experimental quantification of entanglement and investigated decoherence effects in many-body quantum systems. During his PostDoc in Freiburg he began his work on the role of many-body quantum coherence in transport through disordered molecular networks. In January 2011, Florian Mintert has been awarded an ERC Starting Grant for his project 'Optimal dynamical control of quantum entanglement'.


FRIAS Project

Our aim is to understand coherent many-body dynamics in dissipative, disordered quantum system from the perspective of optimal control theory. For this purpose, we construct configurations of quantum many-body systems that behave optimally with respect to various figures of merits, such as robustness of coherence or transport efficiency. From the comparison of structures that we have identified as optimal with those that have been identified by evolution we expect to gain insight in the functionality of molecular networks
