Atomic Bose-Einstein condensates are the coldest things known in the universe, even colder than deep space. At such low temperatures strange quantum effects such as entanglement become strong enough that it is important. Here we describe a little about our research of understanding this unique state of matter and application towards quantum information.
Today groups across the world are experimenting with various technologies in the pursuit of novel quantum information processing devices. Some of the more famous examples are ion traps, quantum dots, superconducting qubits, cold atoms in optical lattices, N-V centres in diamond, and photons. Here we are interested in using Bose-Einstein condensates for quantum information, which are interesting because they exhibit quantum phenomena on a macroscopic scale! Find out more
