Rydberg Systems as a Novel Platform for Optical Quantum Communication and Quantum Networks

October 29, 2018
Recent advances in quantum research have made it possible to map the strong interactions between Rydberg atoms on optical photons by making use of electromagnetically induced transparency. Now, for the first time, researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics have exploited this mechanism to implement a photon-photon quantum gate. This all-optical logic gate provides precise control over single photons, and its realization opens a route to new applications in quantum communication and quantum networks. [more]

Molecules Brilliantly Illuminated

April 23, 2018
Physicists at the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics, which is jointly run by Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, have developed a high-power laser system that generates ultrashort pulses of light covering a large share of the mid-infrared spectrum. The researchers envisage a wide range of applications for the technology – in the early diagnosis of cancer, for instance. [more]
