Carl Zeiss Award for Young Researchers

On Monday evening, I received the Carl Zeiss Award for Young Researchers, which is awarded to outstanding up-coming scientists in optics and photonics by the Ernst Abbe Fund every two years. The ceremony took place at the Deutsches Museum in Munich and it was a pleasure to be honored at such a special location. My […]

Pint of Science 2023

Yesterday, together with Prof. Gerhard Kirchmair, I had the pleasure of speaking at the Pint of Science event in Innsbruck. We had a great time discussing the unique features of quantum mechanics and how they can be used to develop quantum technologies such as the quantum internet. The quantum internet has the potential to revolutionize […]

Entangling ions across Innsbruck’s campus

Trapped ions are a promising platform for the realization of future quantum networks, as they combine high quality local quantum operations with an efficient spin-photon interface for long-distance quantum communication. As a first step towards a real-world quantum network of trapped ions we report now on the demonstration of entanglement generation between two trapped ion […]

How to improve NV center entanglement?

Node-to-node entanglement is the crucial resource in a quantum network and it is therefore of prime importance to have its fidelity and efficiency well under control. In Delft, we have done a rigorous study of entanglement generation between two Nitrogen-Vacancy quantum network nodes and shed light on the influcence of various parameters during entanglement generation. […]

Physics World: Favorite Research 2022

Our paper on quantum teleportation across a three-node quantum network based on solid state spins was selected as one of the research higlights in 2022 in Quantum Science and Technology by IOP PhysicsWorld. We will keep pushing for more results in the coming years!

ESPRIT grant within Quantum Austria research initiative

I have received an ESPRIT grant by the Austrian Science Fund within the research initiative Quantum Austria. The CoolQuanD project will allow us to build a setup for studying levitated mesoscopic diamonds that host quantum spins – an experimental platform that could bridge the gap between the classical and the quantum world. I look forward […]

Teleportation of quantum information across a rudimentary quantum network

At QuTech (Delft University of Technology) we have succeeded in teleporting quantum information across a rudimentary network – between network nodes that do not share a direct physical connection. This first of its kind is an important step towards a future quantum internet. This breakthrough was made possible by a greatly improved quantum memory and […]

Tsinghua-TAU joint seminar on Realizing Multinode Quantum Networks

The Tsinghua University has invited me to give a seminar on recent advances on Quantum Networks within the Quantum Internet Alliance in Europe at the joint seminar between Tsinghua University in Beijing, China and Tel Aviv University in Israel (video link). In this seminar, I am discussing recent advances of two promising quantum network platforms, […]

Interview by Schäffler Tomorrow

I have been interviewed by Schäffler Tomorrow on the developement of the Quantum Internet, and tried to give insights on the road ahead. Have a look in the newest issue of Schäffler-tomorrow.
