Space-time and entanglement

Whenever two very different areas of theoretical physics are found to be described by the same mathematical structures, it frequently leads to discover unexpected insights on both sides. This brief overview tries to explain why physicists in the areas of quantum gravity and string theory, especially those interested in the quantum structure of space-time are…

“Nanotechnology meets Quantum Information” summer school

We would like to bring to your attention the school “Nanotechnology meets Quantum Information”, that will take place in San Sebastian, Spain in July 11-14, 2016. The school reviews the state-of-the-art of solid-state based quantum information processing in settings such as quantum dots, superconductors, photonic crystals, and topological matter. Prospects of quantum computing and the…

Open PhD position in Quantum Cryptography

The group of Optical Communications at the University of Vigo (Spain) is looking for a PhD student in the area of quantum cryptography. The aim of the PhD project is to develop new high-rate quantum key distribution protocols and explore their robustness against side-channel attacks. Requirements: A Master’s degree in physics, mathematics, or engineering Candidates…

Un Lego cuántico y relativista

por Carlos Sabín, IFF-CSIC ¿Qué falta por hacer en el campo de la física teórica? Hace ya un siglo que el ser humano fue capaz de alcanzar dos grandes cimas de pensamiento: por un lado, la teoría de la relatividad especial y general; por otro, la mecánica cuántica. Por separado, así como combinadas en la…

Interview: Verónica Fernández Mármol (CSIC)

Verónica Fernández Mármol is a young researcher leading a group in experimental Quantum Key Distribution at the Institute of Physical and Information Technologies. Veronica is a member of the Spanish Network in Quantum Information (RICE) and in this interview, she talks about her career paths, the goals of her research and future prospects. After finishing…

New “Articles” section

In a modest effort to popularize the research done in this network, as well as to make the members of the network better known to the general public, we are opening a modest section called “Articles”. This section is devoted to outreach texts, including descriptions of research topics, brief press releases of key results, and…
