Semester & Master Projects
Are you interested in carrying out a Semester project or Master's project in our group? Students are welcome to attend our presentation of available topics on Thursday December 3, 2015 at 16:45 in the HIT building, K floor, just across from the office K 41.2.
Nature Perspective

Interested in quantum cryptography, randomness and free will? Don't miss out on our nature perspecitve article about The ultimate physical limits of privacy !

Science Article

Our manuscript "Entanglement Polytopes: Multiparticle Entanglement from Single-Particle Information" has recently appeared in Science. Check out the ETH Life article "Spooky action put to order" about it.

ETH Life article

Check out the ETH Life article "In den Fussstapfen von Wolfgang Pauli" (in german) about our latest latest publication "Pinning of Fermionic Occupation Numbers" in Physical Review Letters. Also have a look at the accompanying Physics Viewpoint: "Pauli Principle, Reloaded".

Quantum Science in Switzerland

We are part of a National Center of Competence in Research project, namely 'QSIT - Quantum Science and Technology'. The goals range from present and future engineering applications such as quantum cryptography and quantum computation, to the investigation of new paradigms for fundamental physics such as topological states of matter. Watch a recently released video about QSIT.
