We've just added a new colloquium to our video archive. Go explore quantum matter with photons.

Our thanks to Jake Taylor from the Joint Center for Quantum Information and Computer Science, Joint Quantum Institute and National Institute of Standards and Technology for giving the talk and giving us permission to share it.

“Our choice of photon shape was inspired by the time symmetry of quantum mechanics” says CQT's Matthias Steiner.

He's part of a team that has mapped the interaction of a single atom with a single photon over nanoscale timeframes. The team show that the photon's shape affects how it is absorbed.

Congratulations to Victor Leong, Mathias Seidler, Matthias Steiner, Alessandro Cerè and Christian Kurtsiefer on the results.

The artist's illustration is not to scale: the photons in the experiment are some four metres long, with the atom is less than a nanometre wide.

Anyone wanting to get up to speed with a decade's research on quantum simulations and many-body physics with light can start with this new review article by CQT's Dimitris Angelakis and alumnus Changsuk Noh.

The article, which cites 260 papers, was published in Reports on Progress in Physics earlier this month.
CQT researchers were invited to contribute the review to Reports on Progress in Physics

From Ancient Greece to Google? CQT researchers and their collaborators have proposed an Archimedes' screw for groups of quantum particles that could be realised in superconducting circuits built by Google researchers.

Congratulations to CQT's Dimitris Angelakis, Jirawat Tangpanitanon, Victor Manuel Bastidas Valencia and colleagues on the work, published in Physical Review Letters.

Will you be attending the Quantum Engineering Science and Technologies Symposium here in Singapore next week? Registration is free at the link.

The program features scientific talks across nanophotonics, quantum simulation and computing, spintronics, many body physics, and graphene. In addition, Paul Indelicato from the French Ministry for Education and Research will give an update on the EU flagship.

The week-long symposium will take place at the National University of Singapore Utown campus, 14-18 November.
