Special exhibition "Light and Matter" makes quantum physics tangible

A „Quantum“ Insight

From the scanner at the supermarket checkout to high-speed internet surfing through fibre optic cables: developments in quantum physics have long been part of our everyday lives and are widely used. In the new special exhibition ‘Light and Matter’, quantum optical phenomena are now being illuminated and made tangible at the Deutsches Museum. As part of the Cluster of Excellence Munich Centre for Quantum Science and Technology (MCQST), the exhibition also offers an insight into current research and an outlook on future applications.

Media tip: TV report on research in the field of quantum technology

Insights into the quantum world

Computers that solve complex problems in the shortest possible time, guaranteed tap-proof networks, and intelligent sensors: quantum technologies could radically change our world in the coming decades. At the same time, however, the new developments are raising more social questions. Researchers from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) provide insights into the current state of research in a report on SAT.1 Bayern.

EU funds cutting-edge research in medicine and natural sciences

Three ERC Advanced Grants for TUM researchers

More effective production of drugs, a way to repair human hearts, and new insights into the world of exotic particles: Research into these topics at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) will be funded with three highly endowed Advanced Grants of the European Research Council (ERC). Two further projects will be funded with Proof of Concept Grants.

Quantum cryptography across large distances

Satellites for quantum communications

Through steady advances in the development of quantum computers and their ever-improving performance, it will be possible in the future to crack our current encryption processes. To address this challenge, researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) are participating in an international research consortium to develop encryption methods that will apply physical laws to prevent the interception of messages. To safeguard communications over long distances, the QUICK³ space mission will deploy satellites.

Cover story: Circular economy

New issue of the "Faszination Forschung" magazine

Circular strategies are intended to create sustainable material and product cycles. Multidisciplinary research groups are developing solutions for the automotive industry. Also in this issue: How close is the point of no return? Climatic changes often build up continuously for years, leading to a tipping point that may be irreversible. And: AI systems in medicine must be particularly trustworthy - find out how data can be reliably protected.

Multidisciplinary research domain

Shaping the Dawn of the Quantum Age

Electrons that spin to the right and the left at the same time. Particles that change their states together, even though they are separated by enormous distances. Intriguing phenomena like these are completely commonplace in the world of quantum physics. Researchers at the TUM Garching campus are using them to build quantum computers, high-sensitivity sensors and the internet of the future.

Quantum internet: "The biggest problem is data loss"

Researchers around the world are working on a network which could connect quantum computers with one another over long distances. Andreas Reiserer, Professor of Quantum Networks at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), explains the challenges which have to be mastered and how atoms captured in crystals can help.

Quantum sensors make microscale NMR spectroscopy possible

A miniature magnetic resonance imager made of diamond

The development of tumors begins with miniscule changes within the body's cells; ion diffusion at the smallest scales is decisive in the performance of batteries. Until now the resolution of conventional imaging methods has not been high enough to represent these processes in detail. A research team led by the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed diamond quantum sensors which can be used to improve resolution in magnetic imaging.

Interview with Prof. Robert Wille on quantum computing software

“Munich is becoming a hotspot for quantum computing software”

Most of us use software applications on a daily basis, for example when writing emails or surfing the internet. But how will future programs look like when new technologies such as quantum computers arrive on the scene? Prof. Robert Wille and his team are already developing the software of tomorrow today. In October, they are bringing the who’s who of the software community together – for a forum to exchange ideas. In this interview, he explains what the forum is all about and what makes Munich such a unique research location.
