The Yale Quantum Institute in the News

Yale News - April 19, 2017

  Yale’s Robert Schoelkopf, Sterling Professor of Applied Physics and Physics and director of the Yale Quantum Institute, was awarded the 2017 Connecticut Medal of Science for his seminal contributions to the field of quantum science and to the new field of circuit quantum electrodynamics. The...

Yale News - May 2, 2017

Professors Robert Crabtree, Nicholas Read, Karen Seto, and Daniel Spielman have been elected to the prestigious National Academy of Sciences (NAS) in recognition of their distinguished and continuing achievements in original research. The academy selected 84 new members and 21 foreign associates...

National Review - May 2, 2017

Quantum computing will be a huge advantage to whatever nation gets it to work first. Let’s make no mistake: The race for a quantum computer is the new arms race. As Arthur Herman wrote in a recent NRO article, “Quantum Cryptography: A Boon for Security,” the competition to create the first quantum...

Yale News - May 4, 2017

From neutrinos to fly vision to follicle regeneration, university researchers talked about a wide array of research at the Yale Science and Engineering Forum on May 3. The Yale Quantum Institute hosted the event, which has taken place annually since 1995. Professor A. Douglas Stone, who has been...

Physics World - May 5, 2017

Molecules containing three atoms have been laser cooled to ultracold temperatures for the first time. The feat was achieved by John Doyle and colleagues at Harvard University in the US, who used a technique called Sisyphus cooling to chill an ensemble of about a million strontium-monohydroxide...

Applied Physics Letters - September 12, 2016

An article from the RSL group is selected as the front cover of the latest Applied Physics Letters (12 September 2016 issue). The paper titled, “Suspending superconducting qubits by silicon micromachining”, by Yiwen Chu, Christoper Axline, Chen Wang, Teresa Brecht, Yvonne Gao, LuigiFrunzio and...

Physics APS - September 16, 2016

A new device that can potentially be scaled up for quantum computing converts visible light to infrared light suitable for fiber-optic transmission without destroying the light’s quantum state.    

Yale SEAS News - September 21, 2016

Go to a particular spot outside the Oyster Bar in New York’s Grand Central Terminal, and murmur very softly into the corner. Dozens of feet away, you can still be heard clearly.It’s known as a whispering gallery, a phenomenon in which sound waves of certain frequencies travel along curved surfaces...

Nature 541 - January 3, 2017

Google, Microsoft and a host of labs and start-ups are racing to turn scientific curiosities into working machines. Quantum computing has long seemed like one of those technologies that are 20 years away, and always will be. But 2017 could be the year that the field sheds its research-only image.

Yale News - July 25, 2016

Yale physicists have created something similar to a Moebius strip of moving energy between two vibrating objects, opening the door to novel forms of control over waves in acoustics, laser optics, and quantum mechanics. The discovery also demonstrates that a century-old physics theorem offers much...
