Research in the quantum technology laboratory is aimed at exploring and exploiting the full range of quantum behaviours—notably entanglement—with an eye to engineering new technologies and scientific applications.
- 19/01/2015: Today is the official Opening Ceremony of the International Year of Light at the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) headquarters in Paris. There are 1500 delegates attending from around the world: Andrew White is one of the two Australian invitees, and is quite looking forward to it!
- 05/01/2015: A very warm welcome to Nicolas Quesada who is visiting us for the next two months from the University of Toronto. Welcome aboard Nicolas!
- 05/01/2015: What better way to start the year than announce that Nor Azwa Zakaria has joined the QT Lab from the University of Malaysia Terengganu. Welcome Azwa!
- 01/01/2015: Happy New Year! Welcome to the International Year of Light *. For a great article on what it's
about, and how it came to be—basically down to the ever-irrepressible Antipodean John Dudley—have a look at this Optics & Photonics News
article, 2015: The
International Year of Light. Physics World also has an interesting, and shorter article,
Physicists get set for UNESCO's Year of
* "...and Light-Enabled Technologies", yeah, I know.
- 11/12/2014: Many congratulations to Martin Ringbauer, whose talk on "Measurements on the Reality of the Wavefunction" won the Prize for Best Student Talk at the 21st Australian Institute of Physics Congress. Now that's the way to end the year!
- 07/11/2014: Our paper on Information Causality in the Quantum and Post-Quantum Regime appeared today in Scientific Reports. Congratulations Martin, Alessandro, and Dominic!
- 19/09/2014: Warmest congratulations from us all to Markus Rambach, winner of the 2014 School of Mathematics and Physics Postgraduate Research Poster Competition! Markus joins QT Lab alumni Matthew Broome and Ben Lanyon as recipients of the award, but his prize is the best yet: $750 to spend on your next research trip—thoroughly well deserved and have fun with it Markus!
- 17/09/2014: Warmest congratulations from us all to Dr Alessandro Fedrizzi, who last night was awarded the 2014 Foundational Research Excellence Award, one of just seven winners across the entire University. Check out the very nice video explaining the science behind his award. The night was fantastic fun, as were the drinks afterwards!
- 24/06/2014: The Register has a subheadline straight out of Treasure of Sierra Madre in their article TIME TRAVEL TEST finds black holes needed to make photons flit, and gizmag picks up the story as well, Australian researchers simulate a time-traveling photon.
- 23/06/2014: Science Alert has improved our graphics considerably in their take on Time Travel Simulated by Australian Physicists.
- 21/06/2014: An article in The Speaker, Time Travel Simulated by Australian Physicists.
- 20/06/2014: And it begins! There are articles on our time-travel simulation paper in phys.org, Simulating time travel: Doctor Who meets Professor Heisenberg, iflscience.com, Scientists Have Simulated Time Travel With Photons, and inquisitr.com, Researchers Simulate Time Travel Using Light.
- 19/06/2014: Our paper on Experimental simulation of closed timelike curves appeared today in Nature Communications. Congratulations Martin, Matthew, Casey and Tim! The UQ press release can be found here.
- 23/04/2014: Our paper on Entanglement-free certification of entangling gates appeared today in Physical Review A. It was a lot of fun, with many long discussions between theorist and experimentalist: congratulations Marcelo, Mile, Alessandro, Matthew and Tim!
- 10/04/2014: Our holonomic phase paper is one of four Editors Suggestions in today's Physical Review Letters. These are papers chose to promote reading across fields, in the hope that they will lead readers to explore other areas of physics. Congratulations again Juan, Matthew and Devin!
- 10/04/2014: Our paper on Observation of Entanglement-Dependent Two-Particle Holonomic Phase appeared today in Physical Review Letters. It's Juan Loredo's first—but certainly not the last!—experiment from our lab: congratulations and may there be many more!
- 05/02/2014: There's are more nice articles today on our uncertainty paper, in PhysOrg, Research team challenges the limits of famous quantum principle, and in Laboratory Equipment, Physicists Challenge Heisenberg.
- 24/01/2014: Juan Loredo's paper on Polarimetric measurements of single-photon geometric phases appeared today in Physical Review A. It's from work with his former group in Peru: nice one Juan!
- 22/01/2014: There articles today on our uncertainty paper in the Wiener Zeitung, Tiroler Tageszeitung, and the Austria Presse Agentur. If you read German check them out out!
- 15/01/2014: Our joint-quantum-measurement paper is one of seven Editors Suggestions in today's Physical Review Letters. These are papers chose to promote reading across fields, in the hope that they will lead readers to explore other areas of physics. Congratulations again Martin, Devon, Cyril, Matthew and Alessandro!
- 15/01/2014: Our paper on Experimental Joint Quantum Measurements with Minimum Uncertainty appeared today in Physical Review Letters. It's Martin Ringbauer's first paper with our lab: congratulations and may there be many more!
- 01/01/2014: Happy New Year! For those of you who like round-number anniversaries, 2014 is a significant year for quantum information.
○ 50 years ago John Bell published his famous inequality paper,
○ 30 years ago quantum cryptography was invented by Bennett and Brassard,
○ 20 years ago—after a long gestation—quantum computing was born with Peter Shor's paper introducing a fast factoring algorithm.
