De meningen ge-uit door medewerkers en studenten van de TU Delft en de commentaren die zijn gegeven reflecteren niet perse de mening(en) van de TU Delft. De TU Delft is dan ook niet verantwoordelijk voor de inhoud van hetgeen op de TU Delft weblogs zichtbaar is. Wel vindt de TU Delft het belangrijk - en ook waarde toevoegend - dat medewerkers en studenten op deze, door de TU Delft gefaciliteerde, omgeving hun mening kunnen geven.

Chris Monroe

from Joint Quantum Institute (University of Maryland + National Institute of Standards and Technology) gave today a talk about quantum simulator based on trapped ions. You see we are rich in talks this month, and all are good.

I’ve learned a lot about ion traps, including intimate details like spontaneous exchange of ions in the trap or complete melting of ion micro-lattice in cause of a collision with an alien atom, that happens once in fifteen minutes. All experiments presented were breath-taking in two aspects. First aspect is a challenging complexity of quantum manipulation involved. Second aspect is that the sucsessful accomplishment of the experiment relies on so many fine details: if you go through all conditions required, and imagine that a failure at each step would be fatal, your breath is taken away.
