Novel thermal phases of topological quantum matter in the lab

A quantum simulation of topological phases of matter at finite temperature has be realised for the first time by a group of researchers from Universidad Complutense, IBM, ETH Zurich, MIT and Harvard University. These findings open the door to unexpected applications in robust quantum technologies against thermal fluctuations such as quantum computers or memories. For…… Continue reading Novel thermal phases of topological quantum matter in the lab

Interview to Prof. Rainer Blatt Research Director of the Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information (IQOQI), Innsbruck, Austria

Experimental physicist Rainer Blatt, Research Director of IQOQI has carried out trail-blazing experiments in the fields of precision spectroscopy, quantum metrology and quantum information processing. He works with atoms caught in ion traps which he manipulates using laser beams. This work is based on suggestions made in the mid 1990s by theorists Ignacio Cirac and…… Continue reading Interview to Prof. Rainer Blatt Research Director of the Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information (IQOQI), Innsbruck, Austria

The best measure of antimatter

Scientists from the ALPHA experiment at the European Particle Physics Laboratory (CERN) have taken the most accurate measurement of antimatter recorded to date. The advance has been achieved with about 15,000 atoms of antihydrogens magnetically trapped in a cylinder. One of the challenges physicists face is to explain why matter survived antimatter after the Big…… Continue reading The best measure of antimatter

A quantum process converts infrared radiation into electricity

Saudi scientists have found a way to obtain electricity through the infrared radiation emitted by the planet. They have used nano-antennas that use the quantum tunneling effect so that the electrons can pass through a diode and transform the infrared waves into electrical current. A prototype that can revolutionize the energy sector. Most of the…… Continue reading A quantum process converts infrared radiation into electricity
