Prof. Ido Kaminer of the Viterbi Faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering won an ERC Consolidator grant from the European Research Council.ERC Consolidator grants support select scientists who propose pioneering, ground-breaking research ideas. The grant will be used by Prof. Kaminer’s research team to develop a theory and innovative experimental platform for a new field in electron microscopy: Q-in-PINEM. The research will focus on creating new quantum states and identifying unique quantum properties for materials.
Quantum computers able to perform complicated lightning-speed computations and quantum communication that can transfer quantum information across the world without it getting lost or being eavesdropped on, are hot buzzwords of our imagined future. Scientists from the Department of Physics and the Solid State Institute at the Technion – Israeli Institute of Technology bring that future one step closer to fruition.
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.
