  • Quantum Politics
    Superposition, entanglement, spooky action at a distance – quantum physics is truly weird. We are surrounded by quantum devices, such as transistors inside computers and cell phones, GPS systems, medical devices etc., things that only work because they cleverly leverage quantum properties. Still, we mostly keep advances in quantum tech ... read more

  • Broadband quadrature-squeezed vacuum and nonclassical photon number correlations from a nanophotonic device
    We report the first demonstrations of both quadrature squeezed vacuum and photon number difference squeezing generated in an integrated nanophotonic device. Squeezed light is generated via strongly driven spontaneous four-wave mixing below threshold in silicon nitride microring resonators.   The post Broadband quadrature-squeezed vacuum and nonclassical photon number correlations from a ... read more

  • A Real-World Quantum Computer Application: Random Numbers – Challenges, Results and a Bug.
    As you may know, producing good quality random numbers is far from easy – yet they are incredibly important. Random numbers protect every cryptographic operation and many security foundations rely on random numbers being really random. But how can a computer who “stupidly” follows a pre-defined program create random numbers? ... read more
