    Scientists Forge A Quantum Leap In Quantum Communication

    Quantum communication, which ensures absolute data security, is one of the most advanced branches of the "second quantum revolution" In quantum communication, the participating parties can detect any attempt at eavesdropping by resorting to the fundamental principle of quantum mechanics – a measurement affects the measured quantity.

  • Fingerprints Of Quantum Entanglement
    Fingerprints Of Quantum Entanglement

    Quantum entanglement is a key feature of a quantum computer. Yet, how can we verify that a quantum computer indeed incorporates a large-scale entanglement? Using conventional methods is hard since they require a large number of repeated measurements.

    ESO’s VLT Working As 16-Metre Telescope For First Time

    The ESPRESSO instrument on ESO’s Very Large Telescope in Chile has for the first time been used to combine light from all four of the 8.2-metre Unit Telescopes. Combining light from the Unit Telescopes in this way makes the VLT the largest optical telescope in existence in terms of collecting area.
