HOT research at University of Konstanz measures squeezing in a novel way
24.06.2020 Physicists at the University of Konstanz have developed a completely new method of measuring squeezing - a potential starting point for high-precision sensor technology. Their work was published in Physical Review X. HOT PI, Prof. Eva Weig, leads the...
Watch our Quantum Drum video
11.03.2020 Research carried out by partner 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...
HOT research at AMOLF makes the cover of Nature Nanotechnology
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 made the cover of Nature Nanotechnology. HOT PI, Prof. Ewold Verhagen, who leads the Photonic Forces group at...
