A powerful radio-wave laser, called a ‘megamaser’, has been observed by the MeerKAT telescope in South Africa.
A POSTECH research team led by Professor Gil-Ho Lee and Gil Young Cho (Department of Physics) has developed a platform that can control the properties of solid materials with light and measure them.
How fast can electronics be? When computer chips work with ever shorter signals and time intervals, at some point they come up against physical limits
Researchers have developed a new high-purity single-photon source that can operate at room temperature. The source is an important step toward practical applications of quantum technology, such as highly secure communication based on quantum key distribution (QKD).
Computers, smartphones, GPS: quantum physics has enabled many technological advances. It is now opening up new fields of research in cryptography (the art of coding messages) with the aim of developing ultra-secure telecommunications networks.
Fragments of the interior of a proton have been shown by scientists from Mexico and Poland to exhibit maximum quantum entanglement.
Superconducting quantum bits are connected to waveguides at Gerhard Kirchmair’s laboratory at the Austrian Academy of Sciences’ Institute of Quantum Optics and Quantum Information (IQOQI) in Innsbruck, Austria.
Quantum information will revolutionize not only research and industry, but also our everyday life.
The ability to interact with light provides important functionalities for quantum systems, such as communicating over large distances, a key ability for future quantum computers. However, it is very difficult to find a material that can fully exploit the quantum properties of light.
How can Einstein's theory of gravity be unified with quantum mechanics? It is a challenge that could give us deep insights into phenomena such as black holes and the birth of the universe.
