The unavoidable presence of noise is thought to be one of the major problems to solve in order to pave the way for implementing quantum information technologies in realistic physical platforms. However, here we show a clear example in which noise, in terms of dephasing, may enhance the capability of transmitting not only classical but also quantum information, encoded in quantum systems, through communication networks.

Researchers from two National Science Foundation (NSF)-funded Materials Research Science and Engineering Centers at Princeton University and the University of California, Santa Barbara made a significant breakthrough in the worldwide pursuit of quantum computing. They engineered a method to control the spin of a single electron within a magnetic field without disturbing other nearby electrons.

The application for the second workshop on Theory and Realisation of Practical Quantum Key Distribution (TropicalQKD 2010), to be held at the Institute for Quantum Computing, University of Waterloo, Waterloo ON, Canada, is now open.

The workshop is devoted to all aspects of practical QKD, focussing on the latest developments in all its subfields. The workshop will bring together experimentalists and theoreticians who are interested in efficient and practical implementations of QKD.

PhD Fellowship-Contract MICINN-FPI 2010
A fully funded PhD Fellowship-Contract in Quantum Information and Strongly Correlated Systems is available to work under the
supervision of Prof. Miguel A. Martin-Delgado at the Departmento de Fisica Teorica I, Facultad de Ciencias Fisicas, Universidad Complutense (Madrid, Spain). It covers a period of 4 years: 2-year fellowship plus 2-year contract. The Fellowship-Contract is funded by the Research Grant FIS2009-10061 of
Ministerio de Ciencia e Innovacion (MICINN) of Spain, and pays the standard stipend for living expenses in Madrid

The Vienna Doctoral Program on Complex Quantum Systems opens the new call for application. New graduate students may be accepted to start in the program with October 2010.

The Vienna doctoral program on Complex Quantum Systems aims at providing young researchers with a comprehensive view of experimental and theoretical quantum physics. It puts a strong emphasis on quantum optics and quantum information in systems as various as photons, neutrons, mesons, atoms, molecules and solids.

Physicists at [http://jila.colorado.edu/ JILA] have for the first time observed chemical reactions near absolute zero, demonstrating that chemistry is possible at ultralow temperatures and that reaction rates can be controlled using quantum mechanics, the peculiar rules of submicroscopic physics.

The Quantum Many-Body Systems Division (Prof. Bloch) at the Max-Planck-Institute of Quantum Optics is seeking applicants for PhD positions within the group. The research of the group is focused on the field of ultracold bosonic and fermionic quantum gases with a special interest in strongly correlated quantum systems, quantum information processing and quantum optical applications.

The Department/Group of Applied Physics, led by Prof. Nicolas Gisin, at the University of Geneva is inviting motivated people to apply for several open PhD and Post-Doctoral positions, working on experimental and theoretical aspects of quantum communication and nonlocality.
