Personal profile

Scientific Career

Peter Rabl conducts research in theoretical quantum physics and quantum optics, focusing on the control of coherent quantum systems in solid-state physics, in particular superconducting circuits, nanomechanical resonators, and spin qubits. One goal of this research is to develop new protocols and technologies that can be used for applications in quantum information processing and quantum simulation. He is also working on analytical and numerical methods for simulating light-matter interactions in nanophotonic structures and in the regime of ultrastrong couplings.      

Peter Rabl studied Physics at the University of Innsbruck. After receiving his PhD in 2006, he conducted research as an ITAMP Postdoctoral Fellow at Harvard University and as a Senior Scientist at the Institute of Quantum Optics and Quantum Information of the Austrian Academy of Sciences. In 2011, he was awarded the START Prize and shortly thereafter moved to the Vienna University of Technology as an Assistant Professor. There he was appointed University Professor in 2021.
