11-18-2021 | Named as a top ten finalist for the Physics World 2021 Breakthrough of the Year, MIT-CQE member, Prof. Wolfgang Ketterle and his colleagues were honored for their work in “independently observing Pauli blocking in ultracold gases of fermionic atoms.”
11-18-21 | MIT-CQE member, Prof. Dirk Englund is named to the Class of 2022 Optica Fellows. Prof. Englund is recognized for “his pioneering contributions to quantum photonics and integrated photonics for applications in optical computing.”
11-18-21 | MIT physicists have observed the Pauli exclusion principle, or Pauli blocking, in a completely new way: They’ve found that the effect can suppress how a cloud of atoms scatters light. MIT News features MIT Prof. Wolfgang Ketterle and the MIT-Harvard Center for Ultracold Atoms recent work and paper published in Science.
11-17-21 | “This new startup has built a record-breaking 256-qubit quantum computer. QuEra Computing, launched by physicists at Harvard and MIT, is trying a different quantum approach to tackle impossibly hard computational tasks.”
11-16-21 | MIT News profiles MIT-CQE member, Prof. Bilge Yidiz! “Prof. Yildiz, MIT’s Breene M. Kerr (1951) Professor in the departments of Nuclear Science and Engineering and Materials Science and Engineering, studies the behavior of ions in materials, particularly on surfaces and interfaces.”
11-15-21 | Now out in Nature and MIT News, “MIT physicists and colleagues have demonstrated an exotic form of superconductivity in a new material the team synthesized only about a year ago. Although predicted in the 1960s, until now this type of superconductivity has proven difficult to stabilize. Further, the scientists found that the same material can potentially be manipulated to exhibit yet another, equally exotic form of superconductivity. The work has potential applications in quantum computing, and introduces a new way to plumb the secrets of superconductivity.”
11-01-2021 | MIT Prof. and CQE member Peter Shor is named to the 2022 class of Fellows of the American Mathematical Society for contributions to quantum computing, in particular quantum algorithms and quantum information theory.

10-21-21 | MIT-CQE members Scott Hamilton, Don Boroson, and P. Ben Dixon from MIT Lincoln Laboratory named 2021 R&D World 100 award winners for their work: “Free-space Quantum Network Link Architecture.”
09-09-21 | Out in Physics@MIT Journal, MIT Researchers from the Vuletic Group have built an atomic clock that measures not a cloud of randomly oscillating atoms, as state-of-the-art designs measure now, but instead atoms that have been quantumly entangled. The atoms are correlated in a way that is impossible according to the laws of classical physics, and that allows the scientists to measure the atoms’ vibrations more accurately.
