More efficiency for optical quantum gates

Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics succeeded in massively improving the performance of a component that is crucial to optical quantum systems. Future quantum computers are expected not only to solve particularly tricky computing tasks, but also to be connected to a network for the secure exchange of data. In principle, quantum […]

Nathalie Nagl wins Otto Hahn Medal of the Max Planck Society

As part of her doctoral thesis, Nathalie Nagl developed a new generation of highly compact ultrashort pulse lasers in the infrared spectral range, which can be used, for example, to precisely analyze blood samples. This should enable diseases to be detected earlier in the future. The Max Planck Society honours this success with the Otto […]

Sensing light

Physicists of the attoworld-team at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität have uncovered what happens during the sampling of a light field. This helped them increase the sensitivity of the measurement by up to one order of magnitude.
