Welcome Lukaš Podhora

Lukaš Podhora has joined the Barium team for the next six months. Lukaš is studying for a PhD at Olomouc university. During his internship in our lab, he will help setting up the new Barium trap experiment, which includes a hemispherical mirror, and work on measurements of ion motion using a fast camera.

Welcome Viktor Messerer

Viktor has joined the fiber cavity team for his PhD. He did his master at Universität Bayreuth on molecular spectroscopy of soft matter. Here in Innsbruck, he will work on setting up the new fiber cavity setup.

Quantum computer simulation of chemical bonds

An international group of researchers has achieved the world’s first multi-qubit demonstration of a quantum chemistry calculation performed on a system of trapped ions, one of the leading hardware platforms in the race to develop a universal quantum computer.

Welcome Dominik Kiesenhofer

Welcome Dominik Kiesenhofer!
Domink has joined the team of SPICY. He got his masters's degree in biophysics from the TU Vienna for simulations on a single-molecule spectroscopy technique. In Innsbruck, he will work as PhD student at the new experiment SPICY, which aims at realising a two-dimensional quantum simulator with full quantum control of 100 particles. 

Entangled atoms shine in unison

A team led by experimental physicist Rainer Blatt has succeeded in characterizing the quantum entanglement of two spatially separated atoms by observing their light emission. This fundamental demonstration could lead to the development of highly sensitive optical gradiometers for the precise measurement of the gravitational field or the earth's magnetic field.

Rainer Blatt interviewed for e-medida

"Revista Española de Metrología" (Spanish journal of metrology), has recently published an interview with Prof. Rainer Blatt on his webpage "e-medida". There he talks about the second quantum revolution and the future of quantum technologies in Europe. Read the interview here.



Multi-particle entanglement record

In an experiment realized in our laboratories at IQOQI Innsbruck, and in collaborations with scientists from Vienna and Ulm, we have demonstrated the largest entangled quantum register of individually controllable systems to date, consisting of a total of 20 quantum bits. 

Welcome Aurélien Fabre

Aurélien has joined the group for an internship. He is doing his masters at École Polytechnique in Paris, France. He will work on implementing Sisyphus cooling at the QSIM experiment.
