Welcome to Quantiki

Welcome to Quantiki, the world's leading portal for everyone involved in quantum information science. No matter if you are a researcher, a student or an enthusiast of quantum theory, this is the place you are going to find useful and enjoyable! While here on Quantiki you can: browse our content, including fascinating and educative articles, then create your own account and log in to gain more editorial possibilities.

Add new content, such as information about upcoming quantum events, open positions for quantum scientists and existing quantum research groups. We also encourage to follow us using social media sites.

Applications are invited for the post of Research Scientist in the Quantum Information Group at Toshiba Research Europe Ltd. Research will be conducted on novel components and systems for quantum cryptography and is mainly experimental in character.

Candidates should hold a PhD in Physics, Electronic Engineering or a related discipline and demonstrated outstanding achievement in experimental quantum cryptography or quantum optics. Experience of optoelectronic components, fibre optic systems, digital electronics and control software would be an advantage.

We are pleased to inform you that following a very successful editions of Benasque 1998, 2000, 2003, 2005, 2007, and 2009, we are organizing another workshop of the similar type from June 12 to July 1, 2011. This is to invite you to apply using the electronic form that you can find on the website specified below. We encourage you to apply as soon as possible and not later than the end of March 2011. The number of participants at the Benasque Centre at any given time is limited to about 50.

James Dacey at PhysicsWorld writes: ''In a fascinating case of physics being turned on its head, a group of researchers at Yale University in the US has created an "anti-laser" that almost perfectly absorbs incoming beams of coherent light. The invention is based on a theoretical study reported last summer in which Douglas Stone and his Yale colleagues claimed that such a system could be possible in a device that they call a coherent perfect absorber (CPA).
