Entanglement has been at the centre of the 2022 Noble Prize in physics: NoblePrize22. Today, optical sources that generate pairs of entangled photons can routinely be realized and used in, for example, secure data communication. In contrast, it has turned out
A Swiss-US-Japan collaboration involving the nanoelectronic group and the SNI NanoImaging lab at the University of Basel, the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Material Science and Technology (EMPA), the Department of Materials Science and Engineering and the Department of Physics at the
We are happy to announce that we have received the first Travelling-Wave Parametric Amplifier (TWPA) engineered and fabricated by Silent-Wave. Silent-Wave is a young start up from the Neél-Institute at Grenoble, France. The TWPA named Argo is their first commercial product.
Yet another example of the high quality of h-BN dielectrics that have been engineered and provided by Kenji Watanabe and Takashi Taniguchi from the National Center for Materials Nanoarchitectonics, National Institute for Materials Science, 1-1 Namiki, 17 Tsukuba 305-0044, Japan.
Roy’s paper “Phase dependent microwave response of a graphene Josephson junction” is now out. See Phys. Rev. Research 4, 013198 (2022). Roy shows that one can obtain both the resistive the resistive loss and the critical current from GHz reflectometry measurements.
Transiting back from Corona modus to more “normal” meetings, we decided to reshuffle our group online meetings. We will keep the Monday meeting as our regular weekly meeting with a topical talk. Research progress will be discussed on Tuesday alternating
We participated in the Sola21 last Saurday the 23rd of Oct. It was a great event on a very sunny day, but freezing cold in the morning We ended up in rank 55, one rank before the team “Bundeshaus”: Here
