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).
The conference Frontiers of Circuit QED and Optomechanics will take place at IST Austria on Feb. 12 to 14. We aim to bring together the leading scientists in Circuit QED, Electro/Optomechanics and hybrid systems. Registration is open now and we are excited to announce the preliminary program:
Nonreciprocal circuit elements form an integral part of modern measurement and communication systems. Mathematically they require breaking of time-reversal symmetry, typically achieved using magnetic materials and more recently using the quantum Hall effect, parametric permittivity modulation or Josephson nonlinearities. We realized an in-situ reconfigurable, magnetic-free, on-chip circulator based on reservoir-engineered electromechanic interactions.
