Benea-Chelmus recognized at Women in Ultrafast Science Global Award

Professor Cristina Benea-Chelmus, head of EPFL School of Engineering’s Hybrid photonics laboratory (HYLAB), was rewarded with the 3rd place at the 1st Women in Ultrafast Science Global Award highlighting her work in integrated terahertz devices for metrology, waveform synthesis and sensing.

‘Ghost’ electrons used to reconstruct behaviour of quantum systems

Physicists at EPFL and the Flatiron Institute’s Center for Computational Quantum Physics have created a new way to simulate quantum entanglement between interacting particles. Their approach involves adding extra, fictitious particles controlled by an artificial intelligence technique called a neural network.

A key role for quantum entanglement

For the first time, an international team of scientists, including researchers from EPFL, has demonstrated experimentally an approach to quantum key distribution based on high-quality quantum entanglement — offering much broader security guarantees than previous schemes.
