Manipulation of Quantum Entangled Triplet Pairs

7 January 2021

Researchers have uncovered a new technique to create and manipulate pairs of particle-like excitations in organic semiconductors that carry non-classical spin information across space, much like the entangled photon pairs in the famous Einstein-Podolsky-Roden “paradox”.

Rosana Collepardo wins €1.5 million ERC starting grant

14 August 2018

Dr. Rosana Collepardo has been awarded a €1.5 million ERC starting grant to develop a novel multi-scale computational method to investigate the organization of the genome with sub-nucleosome resolution. While sequencing our genome today is easy, finding out how it functions remains an urgent unsolved problem crucial to...

Chiara Ciccarelli awarded a Royal Society University Research Fellowship

9 August 2017

Chiara Ciccarelli was awarded a Royal Society University Research Fellowship from October 2017. Chiara will take the Fellowship in Cambridge where she is currently building an optical/THz pump-probe setup to study the interaction between spin currents and magnons (magnetic excitations) in antiferromagnets. Chiara’s...
