Quantum Flagship October 29th, 2018

Congratulations to Dr. Klaus Jöns for coordinating S2QUIP project as a part of the European Quantum Flagship. S2QUIP will develop scalable cost-effective quantum photonic hybrid microsystems by integrating 2D semiconductor materials in CMOS compatible photonic circuits. S2QUIP will provide the community with on-chip quantum light sources for quantum simulation, communication, metrology and sensing. In total, 20 projects have been selected out of 140 submitted proposals for the ramp-up phase of the initiative, more information can be found here.

Ehrenfest Best Paper Award, December 2nd, 2016

Marijn Versteegh received the Ehrenfest Best Paper Award for the best publication on the foundations of quantum mechanics of the year 2015. The prize was given to the authors of the article 'Significant-loophole-free test of Bell’s theorem with entangled photons', PRL 115, 250401 (2015). This article is about the Bell experiment that Marijn had performed, together with Marissa Giustina and Sören Wengerowsky, in a team led by Anton Zeilinger at IQOQI, Vienna. Other prize winners were the group of Sae Woon Nam at NIST, Boulder and the group of Ronald Hanson at TU Delft. The award ceremony was held in Vienna on December 2, 2016. At this occasion Marijn gave a talk about the performed Bell test.
