[2013-09-16] A team of scientists in Innsbruck, Austria, made an important step toward distributed quantum computing with cavities linking remote atom-based registers. They demonstrated precise control of the coupling of each of two trapped ions to the mode of an optical resonator.

[2013-08-20] In October 2013, young Catalan physicist Oriol Romero-Isart will add his expertise to the Innsbruck quantum physics community. Shortly after his recruitment to the University of Innsbruck, Austria, he received one of the most highly valued European research grants: an ERC Starting Grant. The physical theorist will study the control and manipulation of quantum systems through magnetic fields and superconductors.

[2013-08-05] For quantum physicists, entangling quantum systems is one of their every day tools. Entanglement is a key resource for upcoming quantum computers and simulators. Now, physicists in Innsbruck and Geneva realized a new, reliable method to verify entanglement in the laboratory using a minimal number of assumptions about the system and measuring devices. Hence, this method witnesses the presence of useful entanglement. Their findings on this ‘verification without knowledge’ has been published in Nature Physics.
