Past group members

This research group, despite being a relatively young group, already has a remarkably long list of past group members who are now in group leader positions in academia or the quantum research industry. At least the first 20 past group members in the following list fairly qualify for this. Here, for a change, we forget all modesty and take pride in the group having close to a record in contributing to starting points for academic as well as other research careers. That is to say, we take career planning very seriously.
