Watch our Quantum Drum video

11.03.2020 Research carried out by parnter UCPH demonstrated a new way to address a central problem in quantum physics: at the quantum scale, any measurement disturbs the measured object. They measure the motion of a thin vibrating drum that is a few millimetres wide...

AMOLF uses light to couple the strings of a nanoscopic guitar

03.02.2020 AMOLF physicists have made mechanical vibrations on a chip behave as if they were electrical currents flowing in a magnetic field. Their work is published in Nature Nanotechnology.   HOT PI, Prof. Ewold Verhagen, who leads the Photonic Forces group at...

HOT 2020 annual meeting

19 - 23 Jan 2020. The 3rd and last Annual Conference of all HOT members in Saanen, Switzerland. The annual conference brings together members of the OMT and HOT consortia, two H2020 funded projects coordinated by EPFL and consisting of research groups from academia...

Quantum drum

31.10.2018. Researchers at the Schliesser Lab and the Centre for Hybrid Quantum Networks (Hy-Q) from the University of Copenhagen have demonstrated a new way to address a central problem in quantum physics. The results have potential applications in ultraprecise...

Watch our Optical Circulator video

14.12.2018 Research carried out by parnter AMOLF demostrates how optical circulation utilising radiation pressure interacts in an on-chip multimode optomechanical system.  We have created a video demonstrating this concept of the Optical Circulator which was also...
