DAVID PÉREZ GARCÍA RECIBE LA MEDALLA RAMÓN Y CAJAL DE LA REAL ACADEMIA DE CIENCIAS

La Real Academia De Ciencias Exactas, Físicas y Naturales De España (RAC) ha otorgado la Medalla Ramón y Cajal a David Pérez García, investigador del ICMAT y catedrático de la Universidad Complutense de Madrid. El galardón se concede desde 2017 a investigadores menores de 50 años por sus méritos científicos y esta es la primera…… Continue reading DAVID PÉREZ GARCÍA RECIBE LA MEDALLA RAMÓN Y CAJAL DE LA REAL ACADEMIA DE CIENCIAS

Evolution of quantum spins looks surprisingly classical

Describing how matter behaves at the quantum-mechanical level is notoriously hard, because the equations get so difficult to solve once there is more than a handful of particles involved. But a new experiment shows that the fine details might not matter too much – and that, if we “squint” at a many-particle quantum system to…… Continue reading Evolution of quantum spins looks surprisingly classical

Trapped-ion crystal makes an ultra-precise quantum sensor

An ultra-precise quantum sensor based on trapped beryllium ions is up to 20 times better at detecting weak electric fields than previous atomic devices. By introducing entanglement between the collective motion of the ions and their electronic spin, a collaboration led by the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) demonstrated that the ion…… Continue reading Trapped-ion crystal makes an ultra-precise quantum sensor

Nanomechanical qubit could be highly stable

A quantum bit based on a vibrating carbon nanotube and a pair of quantum dots could be unusually resistant to noise. Although the new nanomechanical qubit is currently at the proposal stage, calculations by Fabio Pistolesi of the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) at the University of Bordeaux and colleagues in the US and Spain indicate that its so-called…… Continue reading Nanomechanical qubit could be highly stable

Two PhD positions in Quantum Condensed Matter Theory at University of California Santa Cruz

The Department of Physics at the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC) expects to fill two PhD positions in quantum condensed matter theory. The students will be enrolled into the Graduate Program beginning in Fall 2022, and are expected to work with Profs. Aris Alexandradinata, Sriram Shastry, Sergey Syzranov on the physics of strongly correlated and topological quantum materials,…… Continue reading Two PhD positions in Quantum Condensed Matter Theory at University of California Santa Cruz
