Great success for the first symposium on Diamond Photonics at EPFL
The organisers, Niels Quack and Christophe Galland, thank all participants who made the Latsis symposium on Diamond Photonics such a thrilling event on May 19-22, 2019!
Internal vibrations mediate quantum correlations
Our group has developed a new technique to probe elementary quantum excitations of atomic vibrations inside a crystal under ambient conditions. The technique uses ultra-short laser pulses and detectors sensitive to single photons.This work was performed in collaboration with the Laboratory of Theoretical Physics of Nanosystems at EPFL and Nicolas Sangouard at the Quantum Optics Theory Group in Basel.

Observation of a single quantum of vibrational energy at ambient conditions
Our group has for the first time successfully observed a single quantum of vibrational energy at ambient conditions, involving the oscillation of more than 100 billion atoms in a diamond crystal. Our work is now published in Physical Review X, and highlighted on EPFL and MIT websites. Check it out!Original article in Physical Review X (open (…)
