Quantum simulation by light radio

Artistic view of the atoms that work as qubits close to a “topological waveguide”. Credit: Max Planck Society Intensive research is being carried out on quantum simulators: they promise to precisely calculate the properties of complex quantum systems, when conventional and even supercomputers fail. In a cooperative project, theorists from the the Max Planck Institute […]

Quantum light sources pave the way for optical circuits

By bombarding thin molybdenum sulfide layers with helium ions, physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) succeeded in placing light sources in atomically thin material layers with an accuracy of just a few nanometers. The new method allows for a multitude of applications in quantum technologies. Credit: Christoph Hohmann / MCQST An international team […]
