Measurement Paradigms in Quantum Mechanics
Paragrafo

Measurements, fundamental in any field of physics, play a special role in quantum mechanics, because they engrave directly on the very foundations of quantum theory. Their meaning, properties and limits currently represent a hot-debated topic and a lively research field for both fundamental and applied research, since quantum measurements can, in many cases, outperform their classical counterparts.

In our laboratories, we develop, implement and study novel quantum measurement paradigms, with the goal to overcome the usual limitations of classical as well as quantum measurements, demonstrating unprecedented measurement capability allowing for major advances in several multidisciplinary applications. 

Furthermore, we exploit these innovative measurement paradigms to investigate the very foundations of quantum mechanics, and also to devise and test optimal protocols for quantum state estimation, another key factor for the development of quantum technologies.
