2D materials for next generation computing

In a compact comment published in Nature Communications, Max Lemme, Christoph Stampfer and colleagues outline the most promising fields of applications of two-dimensional (2D) materials, as well as the challenges that still need to be solved to see the appearance of...

Extremely compressible “gas of light”

Extremely compressible “gas of light”

Busley et al. bring these advantages to quantum gases of light and explore a textbook scenario: a two-dimensional, spatially uniform gas of bosons.[from Photons think inside the box, Perspective, Science 375 (6586), pp. 1355-1356, 2022]The group of Martin Weitz...

Observing the difference between quantum and classical causality

Observing the difference between quantum and classical causality

In an international multi-site cooperation, scientists from the ML4Q Cluster of Excellence are able to observe quantum effects in cause and effect relationship in a photonic experiment. Understanding causal relationships in the observed data is a deeply rooted concept...
