Scientists at MPQ succeed for the first time in teleporting quantum information encoded in an atomic qubit to a laboratory 60 meters away using just one single photon as a resource. more

Using intense pulses of laser light, members of the attoworld team at the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics and the Ludwig-Maximilian University have synthesized trihydrogen ions from water molecules adsorbed onto nanoparticles. more

Physicists at the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics (MPQ) and Ludwig-Maximilian University in Munich (LMU) have used ultrashort laser pulses to probe the dynamics of photoelectron emission in tungsten crystals. more

Entanglement is one of the most important properties of quantum particles and a core resource of many emerging quantum technologies. However, its leverage as a resource is limited as entanglement is a fragile phenomenon that is often destroyed upon detection. Until now: A team of physicists at MPQ has developed a novel technique to detect entangled states of distant qubits while still preserving their entanglement. more

In collaborative international effort, laser physicists at LMU have built the first hybrid plasma accelerator more

Even though quantum communication is tap-proof, it is so far not particularly efficient. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics want to change this. They have developed a detection method that can be used to track quantum transmissions - without destroying the information. more

A new study carried out by a team of laser physicists, molecular biologists and physicians based at LMU Munich and the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics has confirmed the temporal stability of the molecular composition of blood in a population of healthy individuals. The data provide a basis for a new method of monitoring the constituents of blood and detecting alterations that reveal changes in a person’s state of health. more

Today’s quantum computers contain up to several dozen memory and processing units, the so-called qubits. Researchers from MPQ have successfully interconnected two such qubits located in different labs to a distributed quantum computer. Their system is the worldwide first prototype of a distributed quantum computer. more
