Shabir won the “Outstanding Scientific Achievement award 2018” at IST and more recently the best poster prize at the WE-Heraeus-Seminar on “Scalable Hardware Platforms for Quantum Computing”, Bad Honnef, Germany, 13 – 17 January, 2019.
APA Dossier about quantum technologies (in German) with a guest commentary by myself: Die ersten Quantencomputer nehmen Gestalt an.
Nature portraits IST Austria (and Matilda) (and our pretty much empty fridge) as part of the Nature Index 2018 Rising Stars supplement in this article about young Universities: Green Shots. This is the full list of the top 30 under 30.
Also interesting, Austria’s natural sciences output in high quality journals seems to grow more than 20 times slower than that of China but still faster than that of any other country: Challenger States.
Fritz Kohlrausch award from the Austrian Physical Society (ÖPG) for the development of a new quantum electro-mechanics platform and its application as an on-chip microwave circulator. (press release, announcement)
A big thank you to all my colleagues who helped make this work!
We just spent 3 great days talking science and enjoing the Tirol mountains at area47.
Over the past few days, IST Austria became a meeting point for quantum technology experts during the “Frontiers of Circuit QED and Optomechanics” (FCQO18) conference. The meeting with about 110 participants addressed a wide range of topics from reservoir engineering to hybrid quantum devices to quantum error correction (press release).
