European Workshop on the Science and Technology of Hot Atomic Vapors

macQsimal is looking forward to one of its highlights of the year, a three-day workshop all about the science and technology of hot atomic vapors, taking place from 22-24 March 2021. The research and the spectroscopy of hot atomic vapors carries great potential for robust applications and quantum technology. Their spectroscopy has lost some attention … Read more

Quantum Highlights of the year in Nature Communications

Quantum Technologies are in the blooming era. Everyone talks about it. We are in the midst of a second quantum revolution unfolding, in which we are trying to exploit our ability to understand, detect and manipulate objects at the microscopic level, in the regime of single quantum objects. We are all aware that quantum physics … Read more
