  • Quantum Entanglement: Novel construction, tighter bounds and upcoming experiments
    Seminar:  Optics Seminar QUEST Center event:  Speaker:  Eliahu Cohen, University of Bristol, UK Date :  03/01/2018 – 12:00 – 13:00 Place:  Nano-center, 9th floor seminar room Abstract:    Quantum correlations are unique. On the one hand, they are stronger than those produced by any local hidden variables model. On the other hand, stronger-than-quantum correlations exist which are nevertheless non-signaling. It is therefore customarily believed that Nature is no …
  • Diamond defects as a venue towards coherent light-matter interaction in the solid state at room temperature
    Seminar:  Optics Seminar QUEST Center event:  Speaker:  Dr. Eilon Poem, Department of Physics of Complex Systems, Weizmann Institute of Science Date :  27/12/2017 – 12:00 – 13:00 Place:  Nano-center, 9th floor seminar room Abstract:    A quantum optical network, consisting of in-matter nodes connected by photons, is a scalable architecture for quantum information processing. Coherent light-matter interaction is a major prerequisite for a such a network. Further …
  • UV induced processes in biomolecules, hydrated clusters and stark deflected beams
    Seminar:  Optics Seminar QUEST Center event:  Speaker:  Rahul Pandey, Open University, UK Date :  20/12/2017 – 12:00 – 13:00 Place:  Nano-center, 9th floor seminar room Abstract:  The nanoscale processes by which UV irradiation initiates damage in biological material have not yet been fully elucidated. This represents a barrier to innovations in radiotherapy and also limits our understanding of the molecular origins of life. Experiments on gas-phase biological build …
