At the Institute for Theoretical Physics of Leibniz Universität Hannover, junior scientist Dr. Hendrik Weimer has focused his research on quantum technology. He creates models that help manage the enormous complexity of quantum physics. Based on these, he develops experiments that put theoretical ideas, like quantum computers, into practice. The areas of application include high-precision measurement techniques, or the simulation of material properties.
VolkswagenStiftung supports his endeavours with a “Freigeist” fellowship worth 900,000 Euro. This funding program is directed toward outstanding junior scientists who address extraordinary scientific issues.
