A team of Australian quantum theorists has shown how to break a bound that had been believed, for 60 years, to fundamentally limit the coherence of lasers.
Researchers at Griffith University’s Australian Attosecond Science Facility have been awarded $744,000 in Australian Research Council funding for a new ultrafast laser system following an announcement today by the Minister for Education Dan Tehan. “The upgraded laser system will produce more than 10 times the pulses of light than the current system and will lead […]
Scientists at Griffith University have made a breakthrough in measurement precision, achieving a result that has been a major goal of the scientific community for the last 30 years. Published in Nature Photonics, researchers from Griffith University’s Centre of Quantum Dynamics have demonstrated that certain optical measurements using photons – or single particles of light […]
Australia’s fastest camera has revealed the time it takes for molecules to break apart. The experimental research, conducted by Griffith University’s Centre for Quantum Dynamics, aims to help in the design of new molecules for materials science or drug discovery. The Centre is the only place in the country to have the machine in its […]
When it comes to studying transportation systems, stock markets and the weather, quantum mechanics is probably the last thing to come to mind. However, scientists at Australia’s Griffith University and Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University have just performed a ‘proof of principle’ experiment showing that when it comes to simulating such complex processes in the macroscopic […]
Griffith University is part of a worldwide scientific experiment that will test the laws of quantum physics – and you’re invited! Tomorrow (November 30) the ‘BIG Bell Test: worldwide quantum experiments powered by human randomness’ aims to conduct a series of quantum experiments in labs around the world that, for the first time, will be […]
The director of Griffith’s Centre for Quantum Dynamics has been elected in the newest class of Optical Society (OSA) Fellows. Professor Howard Wiseman is among 96 OSA members, representing 19 different countries, who have been been elected this year among 177 nominations reviewed. Fellows are selected based on several factors, including specific scientific, engineering, and technological contributions, a record […]
