- 15/07/2013: Our paper on High-efficiency cross-phase modulation in a gas-filled waveguide appeared today in Physical Review A. This is our first paper with Andre Luiten's amazing lab in Adelaide. Congratulations Chris, Phil, and the rest of the team!
- 20/06/2013: Alán Aspuru-Guzik has noticed that our Quantum Chemistry paper is the
21st most cited paper in Nature Chemistry, according to the
Google Scholar H5 index. Not bad for a physics lab!
- 17/06/2013: Our photon-source paper is one of three 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 Olivier and Marcelo!
- 17/06/2013: Our paper on Entangling Quantum-Logic Gate Operated with an Ultrabright Semiconductor Single-Photon Source appeared today in Physical Review Letters. This is our first paper with Pascale Senellart and her wonderful lab in Paris. Congratulations Olivier, Marcelo, and the rest of the team!
- 14/06/2013: Today we bid a fond farewell to Olivier Gazzano who is returning to France to hand in his PhD. Thank you Olivier, we had a blast and come back anytime! (Also, don't let Marcelo take you out drinking before your 22:30 flight ... oh, too late).
- 29/05/2013: Andrew was formally admitted today to the Australian Academy of Science during Science at the Shine Dome 2013, and gave an introductory lecture on The Second Quantum Revolution.
- 29/05/2013: Our paper on Direct characterization of linear-optical networks appeared today in Optics Express. Congratulations Saleh, Matthew, Robert, Alessandro and Tim!
- 22/05/2013: There's a nice article at FQXI Discord in the Quantum World that mentions—amongst many other things—our experimental work on quantum discord. Surf on over and have a read!
- 16/05/2013: For those of you interesting in all things quantum computing, go read Scott Aaronson's blog post D-Wave: Truth finally starts to emerge. The tl;dr version: good news. It's finally possible—modulo some reasonable assumptions—to infer the presence of entanglement in a D-Wave device, athough not what kind, or how much. bad news. D-Wave have showed no speed advantage whatsoever for quantum annealing over classical simulated annealing. terrible news. D-Wave's egregious hype is very destructive.
- 02/05/2013: Andrew provided comments to the ABC on the excellent paper by Sven Rogge and his team published in Nature today, Positive spin in quantum discovery. Congratulations Chunming, Sven and the rest of the team!
- 14/04/2013: A very warm welcome to Olivier Gazzano who is visiting us for the next two months, as part of our collaboration with the wonderful lab of Pascale Senellart. Welcome aboard Olivier!
- 04/04/2013: Our Vice-Chancellor, Professor Peter Hoj, was on ABC Radio this morning reporting that UQ Scientists receive Australian Academy of Science Fellowships. Have a listen! Andrew wants to note that—despite the lede—no actual buckets of money are involved ... although he's not averse to some if folk are feeling inclined that way.
- 31/03/2013: Congratulations to Alessandro Fedrizzi and former QT Lab Alumnus Kevin Resch for their paper in Nature Photonics, Spectral compression of single photons. Very nice!
- 27/03/2013: Andrew is one of twenty new Fellows of the Australian Academy of Sciences, five of whom are from UQ. He's very thrilled and very humbled.
- 21/03/2013: The New York Times, has a nice article on things to do when you next visit our lab: 36 Hours in Brisbane, Australia.
- 15/01/2013: Congratulations to Matthew Broome for his paper in Nature Communications today, Multiphoton quantum interference in a multiport integrated photonic device. Matt's coauthors include much-missed QT Lab alumni Marco Barbieri and Nathan Langford, and the paper came out of a research trip to Ian Walmsley's wonderful group in Oxford. Congratulations one and all!
- 08/01/2013: Edwin Cartlidge has a thoughtful piece in Physics World today, 'Boson sampling' offers shortcut to quantum computing. Surf on over and have a read!
- 03/01/2013: Many congratulations to Alessandro Fedrizzi for his recent paper in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Quantum erasure with causally disconnected choice. What a fabulous start to the year!
- 02/01/2013: Happy New Year! photonics.com has a report on our BosonSampling paper, with a title that the Terminator folk should consider for the next film in the franchise: Rise of the Boson-Sampling Computer.
