The ion trapping group at Stockholm University led by Markus Hennrich has implemented the first quantum gate on a trapped Rydberg ion. The result has been published in Physical Review Letters and has been highlighted as an editors’ suggestion.
There is a range of wavelength in the electromagnetic spectrum that is hard to exploit, although it would certainly bring enormous advantages in many fields of application if we were able to build a suitable source. That is known as the THz Gap (The Terahertz Gap), and researchers at Stockholm University seem to have finally found a way around it.
Entanglement is one of the most puzzling features of quantum theory and a principal resource for quantum information processing. We have for the first time experimental demonstration of this quantum phenomenon with two photonic three-partite nondistillable entangled states.
Liquid water can exist in two different forms – at least at very low temperatures. This is the conclusion drawn from X-Ray measurements carried out by an international team of researchers headed by Stockholm University.
The trapped ion quantum technologies group at Fysikum led by Markus Hennrich has published a paper in Physical Review X reporting the first Rydberg excitation of trapped strontium ions. Trapped Rydberg ions are a novel quantum system and a promising candidate for building a scalable quantum computer.
