The "Vienna Center for Quantum Science and Technology" is a joint initiative of the University of Vienna, the Vienna University of Technology, and the Austrian Academy of Sciences, which unites quantum physicists of Vienna's research institutions in one collaborative center. The VCQ will set new impulses for research and teaching through its unique spectrum of research topics - from fundamental quantum physics to novel quantum technologies.
Quantenphysiker der Österreichischen Akademie der Wissenschaften um Anton Zeilinger konnten mit Hilfe 600 Jahre alter kosmischer Lichtteilchen einen entscheidenden Beweis zur Quantenverschränkung erbringen. Im ... [more]
If a source emits photon pairs, their momenta can be correlated. For example, if one photon is always emitted in the exactly opposite direction of the other, the two photons show perfect correlation. On the other hand, ... [more]
The research team around Anton Zeilinger has succeeded in breaking two novel records while experimenting with so-called twisted particles of light. In one experiment, the scientists could show that the twist of light ... [more]
