HOT

Full Name: 
Hybrid Optomechanical Technologies
Coordinator: 
EPFL / Prof. Tobias J. Kippenberg
Running time: 
2017-01-01 - 2020-12-31

HOT is a 4-year FET Proactive project that will lay the foundation for a new generation of devices that connect or even contain several nano-scale platforms in a single “hybrid” system. These hybrid devices will allow the exploitation of the unique advantages of each subsystem, thus enabling entirely novel functionalities.

A H2020 Marie Curie Skłodowska - European Training Network (ETN) coordinated by EPFL

OMT is a Marie Curie collaborative research and training network focused on exploring new applications of Optomechanical Technologies (OMT), which brings together 14 EU partners, including IBM and Bosch. OMT kicked off on 1st October 2016, offering 15 PhD students (early-stage researchers) the opportunity to join leading research groups and participate in competitive experiments.

Quantum Flagship: HLSC intermediate report handed over to the EC

Summary: 

Today, the Intermediate Report from the Quantum Technologies Flagship High-Level expert group has been handed over to the European Commission.

Today, the Intermediate Report from the Quantum Technologies Flagship High-Level expert group has been handed over to the European Commission.

Research Type: 
Theory

Technological developments enable us to manipulate and control quantum effects at an increasingly advanced level of sophistication. This gives new opportunities e.g. within communication, metrology, sensors, simulation and computation. Quantum technology will affect global communication networks and security on the internet.

Our research is concentrated on quantum mechanical measurement theory and quantum metrology, quantum opto-mechanics, quantum optics, entanglement, nonlocality and quantum information.
