Spin glass physics with trapped ions

31-May-2016

One of the most striking discoveries of quantum information theory is the existence of problems that can be solved in a more efficient way with quantum resources than with any known classical algorithm. Number-partitioning, which refers to the simple task of dividing a set of numbers into two ...

'God does not play dice'

Experiments tests Einstein's theorem using quantum 'dice'

23-Oct-2015

Random number generators developed at ICFO - The Institute of Photonic Sciences, by the groups of ICREA Professors Morgan W. Mitchell and Valerio Pruneri, played a critical role in the historic experiment by the group of Ronald Hanson at TU Delft. The experiment gives the strongest refutation to ...

Tracking slow nanolight in natural hyperbolic metamaterial slabs

17-Sep-2015

Researchers at CIC nanoGUNE (Basque Country) in collaboration with colleagues at ICFO - The Institute of Photonic Sciences (Catalunya) have imaged how light moves inside an exotic class of matter known as hyperbolic materials. They observed, for the first time, ultraslow pulse propagation and ...

Controlling phase changes in solids

A recent study demonstrates the rapid control of phase-changes in resonantly bonded materials

05-Aug-2015

Rewritable CDs, DVDs and Blu-Ray discs owe their existence to phase-change materials, those materials that change their internal order when heated and whose structures can be switched back and forth between their crystalline and amorphous phases. Phase-change materials have even more exciting ...

A first glimpse inside a macroscopic quantum state

07-Apr-2015

In a recent study published in Physical Review Letters and highlighted by the magazine Science News, the research group led by ICREA Prof at ICFO Morgan Mitchell has detected, for the first time, entanglement among individual photon pairs in a beam of squeezed light.Quantum entanglement is always ...

Cleaner and greener cities with integrated transparent solar cells

High power conversion of new solar cells that are thin, flexible, and transparent makes them ideal for a wealth of new applications

23-Oct-2013

Imagine buildings in which the windows allow the sun's light to enter, and at the same time capture the energy from the sun needed to meet all their energy needs. In this seemingly futuristic scenario, the windows become productive solar cells that help us decrease our reliance on fossil fuels ...

Graphene: A material that multiplies the power of light

ICFO scientists show that graphene is highly efficient in converting light to electricity

27-Feb-2013

Bottles, packaging, furniture, car parts... all made of plastic. Today we find it difficult to imagine our lives without this key material that revolutionized technology over the last century. There is wide-spread optimism in the scientific community that graphene will provide similar paradigm ...
