(But somehow it’s all about The Netherlands this month…) Glen Harris and Warwick Bowen give some insight in the demonstration of optomechanical quantum teleportation by Niccolò Fiaschi and colleagues in the Gröblacher group at TU Delft. What’s special is that mechanaical states are teleported onto a long-lived (!) quantum memory. Read on in Nature Photonics News & Views:
Meanwhile, our Soroush Khademi writes in PhysicsWorld on the progress in photonic quantum computing: the company QuiX Quantum and Pinkse group at the University of Twente have built the largest photonic quantum processor to date. Find Soroush’s reporting in PhysicsWorld, here:
In a new podcast series, Australia’s brightest quantum physicists are interviewed about science, tech, and themselves. And two of the hosts happen to be our own Liz Bridge and Yasmine Sfendla! In the first episode, they introduce themselves and chat away about their paths through physics. Cryogenic anecdotes galore.
The fridges used in #quantum labs can’t be bought from your local white-goods store – they’re much shinier, and can cool things down to only a few degrees above absolute zero temperature
We are incredibly excited this week about the work of Catxere Casacio, Lars Madsen, Alex Terrasson, Muhammad Waleed, Michael Taylor, Warwick Bowen and collaborators in developing a miscrocope that uses quantum entanglement to overcome the photodamage threshold which inhibited convenional bio-miscroscopes from resolving the smallest details of biological samples. Read all about their discovery in Nature, The Guardian, Physicsworld & The Conversation:
After a challenging year, our lab took a break from our attempts to master nature… and submitted to it instead. We had a beautiful time snorkelling the reef, walking beaches, and getting blown away by the ever-incredible Australian nature and island winter-breeze. A big thanks too, to Alex Terrasson who organized this fantastic trip for us.
In our latest article, Lars Madsen, Catxere Casacio, Alex Terrasson, Warwick Bowen and collaborators measure the viscosity of a fluid within twenty microseconds and extreme precision—up to the point where the remnant uncertainty stems from its thermal molecular collisions.
