Outstanding synergies in quantum research

Two research projects with ETH Zurich involvement have been awarded one of the highly coveted ERC Synergy Grants. These EU grants aim to promote pioneering research that is only possible through the synergy of several teams. More than EUR 26 million will now be made available for the two projects. As basic research continues to […]

Amazing breakthrough – terahertz quantum cascade lasers can now be used outside of laboratories

Lasers are amazing and they have millions of potential applications. However, some lasers can only work in presine lab environments, which limits their use. For example, quantum cascade laser, generating terahertz radiation, could not work in the wild. But now scientists from the University of Waterloo and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology developed such a […]

Building a quantum network one node at a time

Researchers at the University of Rochester and Cornell University have taken an important step toward developing a communications network that exchanges information across long distances by using photons, mass-less measures of light that are key elements of quantum computing and quantum communications systems. The research team has designed a nanoscale node made out of magnetic and semiconducting […]
