Entangled photons unlock new super-sensitive characterization of quantum technology 28 May 2015 Scientists and engineers from the University of Bristol, UK, and the Centre for Quantum Technologies in Singapore have published work in the June issue of Optica. They demonstrate a new protocol for estimating unknown optical processes, called unitary operations, with precision enhanced by the unique properties of quantum mechanics. This could lead to both dramatically better sensors for medical research and new approaches to benchmark the performance ultra-powerful quantum computers.

  • Can time go backwards? 28 May 2015 Can time go backwards? It seems the stuff of science-fiction, but various aspects of present-day physics, from intricate distortions of space-time due to gravity to strange quantum effects, suggest that at least some form of backward-in-time influences are possible.
  • Bristol physicist to row across the Atlantic 21 May 2015 More people have been sent into space or climbed Everest than those who have rowed across the Atlantic Ocean. A test of such physical endurance teamed with a wide range of dangerous obstacles unique to the vast ocean environment is not for the faint-hearted. Yet second year Bristol Physics and Astrophysics student Jay Olenicz is one of those preparing for this year’s Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge, which at just under 3500 miles is one of the world’s most arduous and intense races. Undergraduate student Aimee Nevill reports:
  • Focus on international students 8 May 2015 The University of Bristol attracts excellent students from all over the world, and the School of Physics is no exception: students from every continent are studying at undergraduate and postgraduate level.
  • Engineering quantum science into quantum reality 16 April 2015 The University of Bristol has today launched its new state-of-the-art Quantum Engineering Technology (QET) Labs. The QET Labs will provide unique world-leading facilities, bringing together industrial and academic collaborators to build devices that span numerous areas of quantum technology development from the nano-fabrication of quantum devices to a city-scale Quantum Key Distribution network.
  • Dr Thompson receives IUPAP prize 10 April 2015 The IUPAP Commission 17 has awarded Dr Mark Thompson a Young Scientist Prize for outstanding contributions of an applied nature to his field.
  • Quantum teleportation on a chip - Nature Photonics Paper 1 April 2015 The core circuits of quantum teleportation, which generate and detect quantum entanglement, have been successfully integrated into a photonic chip by an international team of scientists from the universities of Bristol, Tokyo, Southampton and NTT Device Technology Laboratories. These results pave the way to developing ultra-high-speed quantum computers and strengthening the security of communication.
  • Bubble Chamber victory for Bristol physicists 30 March 2015 The Bubble Chamber tournament is a fiercely contested football competition for particle physics research groups.
  • Prof. Jeremy O'Brien presents lecture at New Scientist's University on the Quantum World 24 March 2015 On 21st February, New Scientst held an all day event to teach the general public about the Quantum World. Prof. Jeremy O'Brien was invited to talk about how quantum physics can be used to create Quantum Technologies.
