Watch our Optical Circulator video

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

HOT2019 Network Conference

7 - 11 July 2019 - HOT2019 covered the broader field of Quantum Science and Technology, including hybrid quantum systems, quantum measurements, quantum interfaces, atomic, microwave and optical approaches to opto- and electro-mechanics. It brought together...

‘Spooky’ quantum phenomenon

08.05.2018. Researchers at AALTO University in Finland have demonstrated one of the perplexing features of quantum mechanics at a much larger scale. Their study could open doors for potentially revolutionary technologies like quantum computers and new kinds of...

AMOLF develops a magnet-free optical circulator

04.05.2018. Researchers at AMOLF, in collaboration with the University of Texas, have created a microscale circulator that directionally routes light on an optical chip without using magnets. Their work is published in Nature Communications.   HOT PI,...

One-way track for microwaves based on mechanical interference

27.09.2017 - EPFL researchers use interference in the motion of a micrometre-size drum to route microwave signals in a single direction. Scientists at EPFL and the University of Cambridge have demonstrated a new principle for developing tools...
