The exquisite control of quantum systems has become an experimental reality. Many so-called Gedankenexperiments anticipated by the founders of quantum mechanics have been realized in the last decades using photons, atoms, molecules and solid-state devices. Experimental quantum science has emerged from a period of confirming the often counterintuitive predictions of quantum mechanics to a research endeavor with an enormous technological potential with particular applications in information science and sensors. The multi-disciplinary approach characteristic for this National Centre of Competence in Research (NCCR) connects different systems and intellectual concepts from physics, chemistry, engineering, and computer science.
