  • Plug and play continuous variable quantum key distribution for metropolitan networks

    The study entitled "Plug and play continuous variable quantum key distribution for metropolitan networks", published by partners of the CiViQ in Optics Express, has been highlighted as an Editor's Pick. Editor's Picks serve to highlight articles with excellent scientific quality and are representative of the work taking place in a specific field.

  • Qombs makes major advances in high performance quantum cascade laser frequency combs

    QOMBS project partner Alpes Lasers has demonstrated high-performance quantum cascade laser frequency combs at λ ∼ 6 μm for the first time. This new wavelength is important because it corresponds to the amide I vibration band of proteins, opening up numerous new biological and medical applications.

  • New software brings quantum network design to users around the world

    NetSquid, a specialized simulator for quantum networks has been made freely available for non-commercial users. In development by QuTech since 2017, the software is the first of its kind to model timing effects using discrete events. NetSquid allows researchers around the world to accurately predict the performance of quantum networks and modular quantum computing systems. Such simulations are essential to design scalable quantum systems and exploit them for radically new types of computation and communication technologies.

  • ID Quantique’s quantum entropy source implemented in Samsung’s latest 5G smartphone

    QRANGE project partner ID Quantique has announced that its newest Quantum Random Number Generator (QRNG) chip has been integrated in the ‘Galaxy A Quantum’, a custom edition of the Samsung Galaxy A71 5G smartphone commercialised by SK Telecom to protect its customers’ most valuable information.

  • European Quantum Technologies Conference (EQTC) postponed to November 2021

    Following discussions between the Irish Centre for High-End Computing (ICHEC), EU Quantum Flagship and European Commission, the second European Quantum Technologies Conference (EQTC) has been postponed for next year in November of 2021 (29th November - 3rd December) taking place in Dublin, Ireland.

  • CiViQ advances in optimizing the performance of quantum communications

    Two different studies published in Nature-affiliated journals by CiViQ’s consortium partner Stefano Pirandola, from University of York, and colleagues, prove further advancement in the field of quantum communications, by overcoming limitations that condition the fully integration of these systems into classical telecom networks.

  • Measuring magnetism under very high-pressure conditions

    A study recently published in Science reports on diamond anvil cells being able to highlight the novel magnetic and superconducting properties that certain materials acquire when compressing matter at pressures that can exceed one million atmospheres. A team of researchers have developed a novel method to detect such properties under these extreme conditions.
