Inferring entropy production from short time series

Recent research at Fysikum, published in Physical Review Letters, discovers a simple method to quantify dissipation in microscopic non-equilibrium systems by analysing short time series data.

New Twist on Strongly Correlated Quantum Matter

Exotic new states of quantum matter form in twisted graphene systems, according to research from Fysikum published as Editors’ suggestion in Physical Review Letters.

”trapped ions (Azote)”: Dualiteten hos fångad jon- och Rydbergatom-kvantteknologi. Fångade Rydbergjoner kombinerar styrkorna hos två mycket olika kvantprocessorer: fångad jon (ovan) och Rydbergatom (nedan) i en och samma teknik. Tekniken har potential att öka hastigheten hos fångade jonkvantdatorer. Illustration: Elsa Wikande /Azote.

Speeding-up quantum computing using giant atomic ions

Trapped Rydberg ions can be the next step towards scaling up quantum computers to sizes where they can be practically usable, a new study in Nature shows.
