Have you spotted that the Quantum Shorts flash fiction competition has a youth category? Encourage any writers you know aged 13-18 to enter!

In this year's con...test, all shortlisted entrants receive a one-year digital subscription to Scientific American magazine and $100. The youth first prize is $500 - and shortlisted stories will be in the running for the People's Choice prize too.

Good luck from us!

Welcome to our place! It's a temporary home while our main lab undergoes some construction work, but it has all the essentials: lasers, fibres, control station ...- and nanodiamonds! #engineeringaquantumfuture #compactliving #officeview #sciencelab #mymq #basementremodel #workspace #diamondnanoscience #physics #lightsout #photoncounting @engineeredquantumsystems @macquarieuni

This sounds weird, but let us explain...

Researchers at Macquarie University have, for the first time anywhere, ever, managed to make a nanodiamond, one thousand times smaller than a human hair,...

Some great early entries for Quantum Games! We can't wait to see more on these quantum-inspired games

Last night, our second year Games students showcased their game prototypes - developed throughout this semester to make quantum physics concepts more for the general public!

The project was a collaboration with the ARC Centre of Excellence for Engineered Quantum Systems (EQuS), based at UQ.

#teamEQUS researcher Dr Jacqui Romero in the Herald Sun on why we need more women in science!…/3209c4720d4c3894a7362f92f302b…

IN a male-dominated industry where female role models are needed more than ever, this quantum physicist is proof that motherhood and science can produce a winning formula.

See that red light? That's the diamond glowing as it gets hit by green laser light delivered through the optical fibre. This is our fibre cavity in operation, m...eaning that light bounces back and forth thousands of times between the fibre tip and the mirror substrate. Each bounce gives it more opportunity to interact with the diamond sample, and we hope to make a diamond laser! @engineeredquantumsystems #glowing #diamond #fiber #cavity # laser #physics #science #labphotography #mymq @macquarieuni #nitrogenvacancycenter #quantumphysics
