In a nonlinear crystal illuminated by a strong laser the photon wavelength is converted to the optimal value for long-distance travel.

For the first time, a team led by Innsbruck physicist Ben Lanyon has sent a light particle entangled with matter over 50 km of optical fiber. This paves the way for the practical use of quantum networks and sets a milestone for a future quantum internet.

The Innsbruck quantum physicist Peter Zoller and Ignacio Cirac from the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics in Garching have been awarded the John Stewart Bell Prize for their outstanding achievements in the field of quantum information processing. The award ceremony will take place today at the University of Toronto in Canada.

Today in Boulder, USA, the quantum physicist Peter Zoller is awarded an honorary doctorate from the University of Colorado in recognition of his pioneering work in physics and his enduring association with CU Boulder. Zoller was Professor at the University of Colorado for four years and Fellow at JILA before being appointed to the University of Innsbruck.

With a quantum coprocessor in the cloud, physicists from Innsbruck, Austria, open the door to the simulation of previously unsolvable problems in chemistry, materials research or high-energy physics. The research groups led by Rainer Blatt and Peter Zoller report in the journal Nature how they simulated particle physics phenomena on 20 quantum bits and how the quantum simulator self-verified the result for the first time.

Rainer Blatt

Quantum physicist Rainer Blatt has been elected foreign associate of the American National Academy of Sciences. This honour has so far only been conferred on very few Austrian scientists. With Rainer Blatt and Peter Zoller, two physicists from Innsbruck are now represented in this renowned institution.
