We will develop methods and implement tools to probe complex many body states with minimal back-action on the observed system and develop optimal control theory (OCT)  to control and create interesting non-trivial quantum states like spin squeezed and entangled states. We will characterize the measurement processes, the OCT process and the final states of the quantum manipulation and explore its limits. These quantum states will then be the starting point for many of our other investigations like quantum metrology.

The position is limited to 36 month.
