When light and atoms share a common vibe
Our group with collaboration with MIT and CEA Saclay demonstrate a state of vibration that exists simultaneously at two different times. They evidence this quantum superposition by measuring the strongest class of quantum correlations between light beams that interact with the vibration.An especially counter-intuitive feature of quantum mechanics is that a single event can exist (…)
Lighting the way to infrared detection
Philippe Roelli proposes a new path to detect infrared radiation with outstanding sensitivity, allowing detection of signals as low as that of a single quantum of light. The related publication can be found in Physical Review X. When using our webcam or cell phone camera, we experience the tremendous capabilities of cheap and compact sensors developed (…)
EPFL Interdisciplinary Seed Fund Received
We have received EPFL Interdisciplinary Seed Fund for the proposal named real-time wide-field quantum imaging of neuronal activity. In this project, we will develop a new experimental platform for neuronal activity imaging consisting of nanostructured diamond containing nitrogen-vacancy (NV) centers. A fully funded postdoc position is now available for this project. Researchers with required skills (…)
