Research alliance on quantum communication launched - 35 million euros for three years

Digitalization of everyday life is advancing quickly, and at the same time the growing exchange of sensitive data needs more security. A communication network based on the laws of quantum physics would be an important asset based on the physically guaranteed security against eavesdropping. The joint project "Quantum Repeater.Link" (QR.X) is pursuing this very goal. It is being funded for three years by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research with around 35 million euros. It is coordinated by Christoph Becher from Saarland University.

Is the moon there when nobody looks?

For Kinderuni Saar we have created a contribution on the topic of quantum physics. We cover the topics measurement process in quantum physics, superposition states and realism - prepared for a young audience. The video "Ist der Mond auch da, wenn keiner hinschaut" (in German) is available on Youtube as well as a video of the visit of a school class in Homburg and an accompanying booklet (in German). The video and the school visit were also a contribution to the BMBF-funded project QUANTAG - Quanta in Everyday Life.

CRC/TRR 306 QuCoLiMa starts on 01.01.2021

The transregio coordinated research center 306: QuCoLiMa (Quantum Cooperativity of Light and Matter) with members from universities Erlangen, Mainz and Saarbrücken starts on Jan 1st, 2021. It intends to explore the distinctive traits of quantum cooperativity within a large variety of quantum platforms at the intersection of quantum optics and condensed matter.
