Whether for use in safe data encryption, ultrafast calculation of huge data volumes or so-called quantum simulation of highly complex systems: Optical quantum computers are a source of hope for tomorrow’s computer technology. For the first time, scientists now have succeeded in placing a complete quantum optical structure on a chip, as outlined in the “Nature Photonics” journal. This fulfills one condition for the use of photonic circuits in optical quantum computers. (DOI: 10.1038/nphoton.2016.178)Press Release 132/2016
ESRF announced that the Full Field Diffraction X-ray Microscopy (FFDXM) end station at the ID01 is now open to user experiments. This new method uses X-ray lenses from KIT/IMT specially designed for the imaging part of the setup. Deep X-Ray Lithography (XRL) was used to fabricate the lenses. XRL is a KNMF technology and available for external users.
