University of Vienna Professor to Deliver Robert Hofstadter Memorial Lectures

It may be too early for Halloween. But later this month a lauded scientist will come to Stanford to discuss an observation Albert Einstein once described as "spooky." [More]

New Quantum Engineering Technology Labs at University of Bristol

The University of Bristol has today launched its new state-of-the-art Quantum Engineering Technology (QET) Labs. The QET Labs will provide unique world-leading facilities, bringing together industrial and academic collaborators to build devices that span numerous areas of quantum technology development from the nano-fabrication of quantum devices to a city-scale Quantum Key Distribution network.

Researchers Design All-Photonic Quantum Repeaters for Quantum Cryptography

Researchers Design All-Photonic Quantum Repeaters for Quantum Cryptography

Imagine having your MRI results sent directly to your phone, with no concern over the security of your private health data. Or knowing your financial information was safe on a server halfway around the world. Or sending highly sensitive business correspondence, without worrying that it would fall into the wrong hands.

Light Brought to a Standstill by Coupling Atoms to Glass Fibers

Light Brought to a Standstill by Coupling Atoms to Glass Fibers

Light is an extremely useful tool for quantum communication, but it has one major disadvantage: it usually travels at the speed of light and cannot be kept in place. [More]
Bristol Researchers Demonstrate Quantum Teleportation on a Silicon Chip

Bristol Researchers Demonstrate Quantum Teleportation on a Silicon Chip

The core circuits of quantum teleportation, which generate and detect quantum entanglement, have been successfully integrated into a photonic chip by an international team of scientists from the universities of Bristol, Tokyo, Southampton and NTT Device Technology Laboratories. [More]
Behaviour of Quantum Crystals Can Help Answer Fundamental Questions

Behaviour of Quantum Crystals Can Help Answer Fundamental Questions

It is a situation familiar from one’s own living environment: relations between neighbours can be intense, yet also characterised by sensitivities. Complex quantum systems can be imagined in a similar way – especially when magnetism is involved. [More]
Escaping Limitations of Quantum Physics to Obtain Precise Measurements of Ultra-Small Magnetic Fields

Escaping Limitations of Quantum Physics to Obtain Precise Measurements of Ultra-Small Magnetic Fields

There are electrical signals in the nervous system, the brain and throughout the human body and there are tiny magnetic fields associated with these signals that could be important for medical science. [More]
Quantum Entanglement Among Individual Photon Pairs in a Squeezed Light Beam

Quantum Entanglement Among Individual Photon Pairs in a Squeezed Light Beam

In a recent study published in Physical Review Letters and highlighted by the magazine Science News, the research group led by ICREA Prof at ICFO Morgan Mitchell has detected, for the first time, entanglement among individual photon pairs in a beam of squeezed light. [More]
Astronomers Identify Best Type Ia Supernovae for Measuring Cosmic Distances

Astronomers Identify Best Type Ia Supernovae for Measuring Cosmic Distances

The brilliant explosions of dead stars have been used for years to illuminate the far-flung reaches of our cosmos. The explosions, called Type Ia supernovae, allow astronomers to measure the distances to galaxies and measure the ever-increasing rate at which our universe is stretching apart. [More]
Single Photon Successfully Entangles 3,000 Atoms

Single Photon Successfully Entangles 3,000 Atoms

Physicists from MIT and the University of Belgrade have developed a new technique that can successfully entangle 3,000 atoms using only a single photon. The results, published today in the journal Nature, represent the largest number of particles that have ever been mutually entangled experimentally. [More]
