Video released: This is the Quantum Software Consortium.

The Quantum Software Consortium is building a new research community in the Netherlands in Quantum Information Science. But what is Quantum Information Science? You perhaps heard of the quantum computer. A computer that fundamentally uses different physics laws than a classical computer does. But like a classical computer, also a quantum computer uses software – […]

Eternal matter waves, Amsterdam physicists build an atom laser that can stay on forever

Imagining our everyday life without lasers is difficult. We use lasers in printers, CD players, pointers, measuring devices, and so on. What makes lasers so special is that they use coherent waves of light: all the light inside a laser vibrates completely in sync. Meanwhile, quantum mechanics tells us that particles like atoms should also […]
