News from the quantum.technology lab

  • 18/05/2018: ...and that was really quick. There is a very nice write-up of our paper in phys.org, Can a quantum drum vibrate and stand still at the same time?. Recommended!
  • 18/05/2018: Our paper on Generation of Mechanical Interference Fringes by Multi-Photon Counting appeared today in New Journal of Physics. Many congratulations to Martin, Till, Michael, and particularly to Lewis for his first—but definitely not last!—scientific paper!
  • 10/05/2018: ...aaand that was quick. There are very nice write-ups of our paper in Newsweek and msn, plus coverage in all the science channels like ScienceAlert and phys.org. If you have a moment check them out!
  • 09/05/2018: Our paper on Challenging local realism with human choices appeared today in Nature. This was a lot of fun, more than 100,000 people participated, and it's our first time doing science as part of a large collaboration: 108 authors! (And in a nice bit of numerology, it is my 100th paper and I am 100th author). Many congratulations to Martin, and to Tara for her first scientific paper!
    * Also, this is going to seriously skew folks' self-citation statistics, plus decreasing their Erdös & Feynman numbers...
