Podcast "ML4Q&A - from the lives of quantum physicists"

Nature is fascinating and so is physics let alone quantum physics! Join us as we delve into the lives of scientists and the complexity of their research topics. Grab a drink, hop on a bus or go for a walk and listen to the many different stories about being a scientist and basically doing something for a living only a few can understand. Our guests are all involved in the research mission of ML4Q, a German consortium dedicated to develop the best hardware platform for quantum information technology, and provide comprehensive blueprints for a functional quantum information network. #ML4QnA

7. 2D Materials: Annika Kurzmann

A career which started with a dedicated physics teacher

We continue to feature some of our experimental physicists. In this episode, we talk to Annika Kurzmann, Junior Principle Investigator at RWTH Aachen and associated member of ML4Q. We talk abour her work on optical quantum dots during her PhD and bilayer graphene quantum dots in her postdoc and how she is now bringing this together to detect single electron dots in graphene. We also discuss the Ruhrgebiet, tenure tracks and starting a lab during the pandemic.

6. Semiconductor Quantum Photonics: Beata Kardynal

Engineer and physicist in one heart

We continue to feature some of our experimental physicists. In this episode, we talk to Beata Kardynal, group leader at Forschungszentrum Jülich and at RWTH Aachen. We discuss her career and her training in electronic devices to using these devices to couple to single photons. She reveals her favorite materials and how she didn't see a strong distinction between physics and engineering from the start.

2. Quantum information theory and many-body theory: David Gross

ML4Q&A continues featuring theoretical physicists in ML4Q. In the second episode, Chris Dickel is talking to David Gross, professor in Cologne and vice spokesperson of the ML4Q cluster. David's research interests lie on the application of rigorous mathematical methods to problems in quantum information theory and many-body theory. We talk about his career path, advising student projects in theoretical physics, teaching quantum mechanics and the Google event he was probably never invited to.
