Building on the quantumCity initiative, the eThekwini Municipality and the Centre for Quantum Technology, a research group of the University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN), has moved to secure the network linking the Moses Mabhida Stadium and the Joint Operation Centre in the city of Durban during the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

At the atom chip lab in Ben-Gurion university in Israel we do a wide range of work from fundamental theory, through experiments and ending with material engineering for quantum optics. Candidates for post-doc positions in any of the above categories are welcome to apply. The BGU university is very close to the red sea, the mediterranean sea and the dead sea. We are in the midst of an exotic region filled with archaeology thousands of years old, fascinating geology and breathtaking nature.

The small-world property (that everyone has a few-step connection to celebrities), for instance, is a prominent result derived in this field. A group of scientists around Professor Cirac, Director at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching near Munich) and Leader of the Theory Division, has now introduced complex networks in the microscopic, so called, quantum regime (Nature Physics, Advanced Online Publication, DOI:10.1038/NPHYS1665).

'''Topics'''

In this school, world-renowned experts on the quantum mechanical coupling of light and matter using micro- and nanophotonics components will give lectures, starting at an introductory level and leading up to problems of current research. The tutorial nature of the courses makes them particularly suited for advanced students at the Diplom/M.Sc. level as well as PhD students.

Physicists in Israel are the first to entangle five photons in a NOON state – the superposition of two extreme quantum states. Unlike previous schemes for creating such states, the researchers claim that their new technique can entangle an arbitrarily large number of photons – so called “high-NOON states”. This could be good news for those developing quantum metrology techniques because high-NOON states could be used to improve the precision of a range of different measurements.
