In January 2021, QuCoLiMa started, a „Quantum Cooperation of Light and Matter“. This is a newly funded Collaborative Research Center Trans-Regio (TRR 306) of the German Research Foundation DFG, involving FAU, the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz and the University of Saarland in Saarbrücken. Why the quantum volcano? Colima is an active volcano in Mexico and one of the 16 so-called Decade Volcanos.

QuCoLiMa intends to explore the distinctive traits of quantum cooperativity within a large variety of quantum platforms at the intersection of quantum optics and condensed matter. We aim at understanding what is the interplay of quantum interference and entanglement in the collective response of many-body quantum systems interacting with light. We will explore in particular the role of the quantum properties of radiation in establishing and mediating quantum cooperative phenomena in a variety of complex matter systems, entering the regime of many-body physics of quantum cooperative light-matter.
