Heading underground with cold atoms

Delving deep into Earth to extract information is crucial for various industries. Whether it is for oil and gas prospecting, mineral exploration, or monitoring carbon capture and storage, boreholes constitute gateways to underground secrets. To navigate these intricate labyrinths, we need advanced sensing technologies. During... click to read more

Holographic sound fields shape 3D matter without a touch

3D printing is about to revolutionize the way we fabricate products. Building up objects point-by-point (also called additive manufacturing) enables the fabrication of single parts of arbitrary shape and composition without slow and complicated machining steps. The realm of 3D printing is still young and... click to read more

How to make a kilonova: Finding a path for cosmic alchemy

In 2017, a cosmic event occurred that changed our understanding of the universe when the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) detected a merger event from two neutron stars caught in a tight orbit in an event dubbed GW 170817. Neutron stars are stars so dense... click to read more

Surfing the Waves of Quantum Matter in Warm Classical Seas

Understanding a physical system is the art of distillation. Within an infinitely entangled reality, one must look at the proper scale and focus on the relevant phenomena to unlock the underlying simplicity. For example, to understand the motion of the sea, it would be futile... click to read more

Taking off with quantum sensors on unstaffed aerial vehicles

Today, we use unstaffed aerial vehicles (UAVs) with a diverse array of sensors in a wide range of applications including aerial photography, precision agriculture, environmental monitoring (i.e. forest fire and river monitoring), and infrastructure inspections. For instance, magnetometers are used on UAVs in archeological applications... click to read more
