Two best poster awards

posted Sep 8, 2017, 1:48 AM by Valerio Scarani

Stefan Nimmrichter at ICSSUR17 (Jeju, Korea) for our work on a three ion Hamiltonian
Goh Koon Tong at AQIS17 (Singapore) for a study on the geometric characterisation of the quantum set
Both works soon on arXiv :)

Thermodynamical recognition

posted Mar 18, 2017, 11:55 PM by Valerio Scarani

Barely one year after we started working in this field, the talk of Alexandre and the poster of Juan Miguel were both awarded among the best in their category at the Fifth Quantum Thermodynamics Conference (order of magnitude: 180 participants). Angeline's poster received good feedback too.

Thermodynamics

posted Nov 16, 2016, 6:10 PM by Valerio Scarani

A new direction for our group: (quantum) thermodynamics. We have been managing a bi-weekly seminar in CQT since January, and recently we posted our first two papers on the subject: an autonomous engine and some considerations on an optical Maxwell demon. More soon!

Successful QCMC

posted Jul 8, 2016, 3:11 AM by Valerio Scarani

All the group attended QCMC16 here in Singapore: each member of the group presented a poster (some even more than one), while Valerio was busy as the main organizer and in an unusual consultancy role.

Youth going forward

In the past few weeks, Ernest accepted a Ph.D. position in ETH Zurich, Cong Wan was offered a M.Sc. scholarship in Cambridge, and Angeline passed her comprehensive exam for the Ph.D.

Welcome to Juan Miguel!

The fourth postdoc, Juan Miguel Arrazola, has joined us. With this hire, the senior positions in the group are filled for a while. Now it's time to define new projects!

Three in Tainan

Xingyao, Ernest and Cong Wan are travelling to an exciting workshop in Tainan: great exposure to the top of the research in nonlocality!

Welcoming a new postdoc

posted Nov 5, 2015, 9:22 PM by Valerio Scarani

Stefan Nimmrichter has just joined us as a postdoc, bringing new topics to our group: macroscopic quantum systems, decoherence and the like (check his past publications). Welcome!

Two conferences this week

posted Oct 23, 2015, 6:58 PM by Valerio Scarani

Valerio is going to a workshop on randomness in Stellenbosch, South Africa; Jibo will deliver an invited talk at a quantum optics conference in Minks, Belarus.

Thank you, Jean-Daniel and Nguyen!

posted Oct 23, 2015, 6:29 PM by Valerio Scarani

Big changes in the group: Jean-Daniel and Nguyen are leaving after more than two years of postdoc. Jean-Daniel joins Nicolas Sangouard's group in Basel, Nguyen the group of Eran Ginossar in the University of Surrey. Of course, we keep in contact!
