Researchers from the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology and Tel Aviv University have developed an innovative method to engineer quantum entanglement in a crystal by using computational learning tools Quantum optics has proven to be an invaluable resource for the realization of many quantum technologies, such as quantum communication, computing, and cryptography. In the past decade, physics and optics have benefitted greatly from the surge of machine learning-aided research, which has led to novel predictions, experiments, and discoveries.
  Why get your degree from the Technion? The Technion, the first and leading institute of Technology in Israel, offers world-class teaching and research opportunities in Quantum Science and Technology (QST). It encompasses first-class engineering along with leading science faculties.  The Technion has been the nucleus of the high-tech industry in northern Israel and provides much of the skilled manpower to the high-tech and defense industry.
An illustration of the spatiotemporal imaging of 2D polariton wavepackets using an ultrafast electron microscope, following the recent publication of Kurman et al. from the Kaminer lab in Science. In the video, we show how we generated a wavepacket of 2D-light and how free-electrons in a pump-probe setup are used to probe the whole evolution of a polariton wavepacket from its creation until its decay. https://youtu.be/iYvXxTK_o5k
