Photon-Mediated Interactions Between Distant Artificial Atoms


Wallraff group demonstrate exchange interactions, superradiant states and subradiant states for two qubits placed two centimeters apart in an open one-dimensional space.



Ronald Hanson wins European physics prize


SOLID partner Ronald Hanson is the 2012 recipient of the Nicholas Kurti European Science Prize.


Dr. Ronald Hanson from the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience, Delft University of Technology is the 2012 recipient of the Nicholas Kurti European Science Prize. This prize is intended to recognise and promote outstanding achievements of young scientists in the field of physical sciences research and to support their career development. Hanson receives a €8000 cash prize, a unique trophy and certificate. He also has the opportunity to present his work at a conference of his choice.

Bristol University Offers Cloud Access To Quantum Chip


Anyone can try quantum computing experiments on Bristol’s public access two-quibit chip.

Bristol University’s centre for quantum photonics has hooked up its quantum chip to the web. Anyone interested in quantum physics or computing can follow a link to Bristol’s Qcloud and try an experiment on a quantum simulator, before running it on a real quantum computer. Read the whole article at www.techweekeurope.co.uk.

QIPC conference, Florence


The QUIE2T - sponsored international QIPC conference 2013 was successfully staged in Florence last week.

In addition to the scientific program, the 2013 QIPC conference comprised sessions that were of interest beyond the scientific community, and that continued the tradition of similar activities at earlier QIPC conferences. Adjusted to the vocation of QUIE2T, these activities included an ‚Industry Session‘, an ‚EU funding session‘ and the ceremony for the ‚QIPC Young Investigator Award‘.


Oxford, UK

Come along to the Oxford University Museum of Natural History, Parks Road, from 5:30pm on Thursday 6th June for an evening of 3 fascinating talks about quantum mechanics – the strangest theory ever to be correct!

Nasa buys into 'quantum' computer


A $15m computer that uses "quantum physics" effects to boost its speed is to be installed at a Nasa facility.

The BBC reports this story about a quantum computer to be shared by Google, Nasa, and other scientists. Read the whole article at www.bbc.co.uk.

2013 QIPC Young Investigator Award


The 2013 QUROPE - QIPC Young Investigator Award has been awarded jointly to Dr. Fernando Brandao and Dr. Patrick Joachim Windpassinger.

We are happy to announce that, by decision of the QUIE2T Advisory Board of Experts and upon approval by the QUIE2T Coordination Steering committee, the

2013 European Quantum Information Young Investigator Award

has been awarded jointly to


Quantum dot admittance probed at microwave frequencies with an on-chip resonator

We have investigated the microwave frequency dynamic admittance of a quantum dot tunnel coupled to a two-dimensional electron gas. The measurements are made via a high-quality 6.75 GHz on-chip resonator capacitively coupled to the dot. The resonator frequency is found to shift both down and up close to conductance resonances of the dot corresponding to a change in the reactance of the system from capacitive to inductive (see Fig. 1). The observations are consistently explained in a scattering matrix model.

Demonstrating W-type entanglement of Dicke-states in resonant cavity quantum

One important key characteristics of a non-classical physical system is entanglement. For a system containing three qubits two important classes of entangled states are GHZ- and W-states. The first class consists of superposition states between |000⟩ and |111⟩ and the second one arises when a single excitation is symmetrically shared between three qubits, i.e. in an equal superposition between |001⟩, |010⟩ and |100⟩.
