Olivia Meyer-Streng writes at IDW Online: ''The proton – one of the universal building-blocks of all matter – is even smaller than had previously been assumed (Nature, 8 July 2010).

Using a unique hybrid nanostructure, University of Maryland researchers have shown a new type of light-matter interaction and also demonstrated the first full quantum control of qubit spin within very tiny colloidal nanostructures (a few nanometers), thus taking a key step forward in efforts to create a quantum computer.

Edwin Cartlidge at PhysicsWorld writes: ''Physicists in the US have carried out an extremely precise test of the one of the cornerstones of modern physics – the idea that the two types of fundamental particle, bosons and fermions, follow two distinct kinds of statistical behaviour.

The SFB TRR21 ("Control of Quantum Correlations in Tailored Matter"), located in Stuttgart, Ulm and Tübingen, invites all interested parties to attend its 3rd annual summer school in Blaubeuren from the 3rd to the 5th of october. Topics this year are "quantum effects in biology", "quantum tomography and sensing" and "hybrid quantum systems".

Please distribute/display the attached invitation/announcement to all possibly interested people in your departments.

According to a new Eurobarometer survey, almost 80% of Europeans are interested in science and technological developments, and just 65% claim to be interested in sports news. ''Perhaps a World Cup of science would get even more people round the TV than the football one does!'' quipped the European Commissioner for Research, Innovation and Science, Máire Geoghegan-Quinn, presenting the results of the survey.
