New quantum technology combines free electrons and photons

— Scientists from EPFL, the Max Planck Institute for Multidisciplinary Sciences and the University of Göttingen have successfully created electron-photon pairs for the first time in a controlled way, using integrated photonic circuits on a chip. Using a new technique, they could precisely detect the involved particles. The findings of the study expand the toolbox of quantum technology.

'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.
