Slovak Academy Award for Mark Hillery

Mark is our long-term collaborator and we are very happy he was awarded this prestigous prize. Congratulations! Mark has started to work in early 90s with Vladimír Bužek on quantum optics exactly when ideas around quantum information has emerged. Together they have published approx 50 research papers. The papers on approximate quantum cloning and quantum secret sharing cryptographic protocol have significantly impacted the field and belong to most cited physics research papers in Slovakia.

Prof. Vladimír Bužek - member of Quantum Flagship Strategic Advisory Board

The Strategic Advisory Board provides advice for strategic decision-making to the Quantum Technology (QT) the Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) Flagship, with a long-term impact across the whole initiative. The group will be in charge of preparing and updating the Strategic Research Agenda whilst monitoring the Flagship’s progress in research, and will report regularly to the FET Board of Funders. SAB members are appointed for a two-year period, each of whom will meet two to four times per year and act upon request of the Chairperson.

CEQIP 2019

We are happy to announce that RCQI (FU SAV, Bratislava) is organizing 16th edition of traditional CEQIP workshops. This year it will be held in "kings' town" Skalica (Slovakia, 60km north of Bratislava). Deadline for absract submission is 15/03/2018 and the submission/registration will be open at the beginning of February. Looking forward to meet you there!

Quantum Community Network (QCN)

The Quantum Community Network (QCN) represents the QT communities of EU member state and associated state in the Quantum Flagship. It consists of 1 member and 1 deputy member per member state and associated state. The QCN member mandate lasts 4 years. All members are high-profile experts with a large network in the national quantum community. The core objective is the coordination of the Flagship with national programs. to identify, engage and involve relevant national stakeholders and to be the go-to-persons for all Quantum Flagship related questions in their countries. Slovakia is represented in QCN by Mário Ziman and Prof. Miroslav Grajciar

European Microkelvin Platform (EMP)

Approved H2020 RIA project (Call H2020-INFRAIA-2018-1, RIA, 2019-2020) for (CLPT) Center of Low Temperature Physics (joint research center of Institue of Experimental Physics of SAS and Faculty of Natural Sciences of Šafárik University, Košice). EMP is a consortium of 17 partners (8 key partners) which have an extensive portfolio of capacities and expertise in ultralow temperature physics. EMP will receive 9.98 M€ (1.1 M€ allocated for CLTP) in the next four years from the European Commisson for supporting user access to its facilities as well as operating and updating the infrastructure. The research activities are dedicated diretly to quantum technologies.

Annotation: The European Microkelvin Platform (EMP) provides access to the ultralow temperature frontier approaching absolute zero. The Platform is continuously evolving by extending its reach, building on the integration achieved through previous infrastructure calls. Europe already has a significant research lead in the microkelvin regime and we will reinforce this by encouraging the further exploitation, in both the shorter and longer term, of ultralow temperatures for the development of new concepts, new applications and new devices, especially in the fields of nanoscience, materials research and quantum technology in all its forms. The EMP is a consortium of 17 partners which provide an extensive portfolio of capacities and expertise in ultralow temperature physics. Since this is a fast evolving and expanding frontier field, we also lay considerable weight on improving and upgrading our infrastructure, since the lowest accessible temperatures are continuously falling. These advances allow us, and our users from across Europe, to study new phenomena, thereby generating new knowledge, applications and commercial opportunities. We have a particular interest in the benefits of ultralow temperature physics for driving forward the inter-related areas of quantum materials, nanoscience, and quantum technology. The activities of the EMP hold enormous potential for innovation. A more extensive description of the Platform and its philosophy can be found in Nature Reviews Materials, The European Microkelvin Platform, Nat. Rev. Mater. 3, 18012 (2018).
