Research

Quantum data link established between two distant Chinese cities

Professor Jianwei Pan and his colleagues Qiang Zhang and Teng-Yun Chen, in collaboration with Xiang-Bin Wang and Yang Liu of the Jinan Institute of Quantum Technology, have achieved 428 km of double-field quantum key distribution (TF-QKD) and 511 km TF-QKD using time-frequency transfer technology, which is the longest transmission distance of QKD that doesn’t have to be trusted.

Nanjing University Recruiting Postdocs in Quantum Optics and Quantum Simulation

Professor Hui Liu’s group in the School of Physics at Nanjing University is looking for three postdocs in the research series to conduct research on fundamental physics, theoretical calculations, experimental techniques and application development related to photonic chips with superstructured materials. His research interests include micro and nano photonics (superstructured materials/equivalent excitations/photonic crystals, etc.), integrated photonic chips, quantum optics and quantum simulation (analogous gravitational/topological optics), etc.

Chinese Academy of Sciences Successfully Develops Dilution Refrigerator

Ji Zhongqing’s team at the Institute of Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) has developed a prototype liquid-free helium dilution cooler that can operate continuously for a long period of time at 10.9 mK and in single-stroke mode at 8.7 mK. This technological breakthrough will provide low-temperature conditions for cutting-edge research in China, such as quantum computing.
