June 17, 2015 | Digital Quantum Simulation of Spin Models with Circuit Quantum Electrodynamics

Quantum simulations are expected to vastly outperform classical simulations when modeling the dynamics of interacting spin systems. Researchers have used a digital quantum simulation to show that spin dynamics can be studied and predicted, which lays the groundwork for applications in quantum magnetism and strongly correlated systems.

November 4, 2014 | Observation of Dicke superradiance for two artificial atoms in a cavity with high decay rate

We realized a two-spin "Gedankenexperiment" suggested by Dicke in 1954 using a system of two individually controllable superconducting qubits weakly coupled to a fast decaying microwave cavity. We demonstrate superradiance of two emitters both in time and by reconstructing the density matrix of the emitted field. The results of this work are published in Nature Communications.

October 17, 2014 | Microwave-Controlled Generation of Shaped Single Photons in Circuit QED

We have implemented a scheme for generating single microwave photons with a tunable shape in superconducting circuits. The experiment describing the fully microwave-controlled shaping process is published in Phys. Rev. X .

September 23, 2014 | Making use of spooky phenomena

ETH President Ralph Eichler's final Lokaltermin event focused on a topic close to his heart: together with five other experts from ETH Zurich, he gave representatives from the worlds of business, politics and science an insight into the unusual world of quantum physics and explained how it may be used commercially in the future.
