The Wallenberg Centre for Quantum Technology has begun. This is a new 10-year program in Sweden with a core project to build a smallish superconducting quantum computer, plus other projects in Q sensing, communication, and simulation. https://www.chalmers.se/en/centres/wacqt/Pages/default.aspx
Another movie night coming up on March 13th, this time hosted by Vivek. We will be watching The 39 Steps, the 1935 version directed by Alfred Hitchcock.
Pizzas will be served at 18:30, movie screened at 19:00.
Interested in a PhD? Think quantum mechanics is the coolest thing since sliced bread (and also before, let's be honest here)? Check out our page for details: http://qdev.nbi.ku.dk/positions/
Got a background in electrical engineering or FPGA design, and interested in quantum computing? Come and join us!
Job ad of the day: We're looking for a technical postdoc to join our team. If you're into device design, nanofabrication and material characterisation then this is for you. If the idea of working with state-of-the-art equipment and an even better team of researchers, students, and faculty get's you hot under the collar then apply apply apply! http://employment.ku.dk/all-vacancies/?show=146716
Quantum computing research at Center for Quantum Devices/ Microsoft Station Q Copenhagen.
Discuss, design, build, measure. But first, apply!
Join the team!

On 20th Feb we have our next movie night hosted by Dominik and it sounds very scary and edgy. Like a cliff. It's called Victoria, was made in 2015 and the blurb goes like :
A young Spanish woman who has recently moved to Berlin finds her flirtation with a local guy turn potentially deadly as their night out with his friends reveals a dangerous secret.
The movie was shot in one single continuous take, with most of the dialogue being improvised.
Pizza at 18:30, movie at 19:00.
This Friday the 16th, the February-edition of our QDev-all meetings will take place in Auditorium 6 at 13.15 with the following program:
Hybridization at Superconductor-Semiconductor Interfaces
Selective area grown hybrids: How does it taste?
Andreev Bound States in a Ring
Sounds good huh? Come along.
Looking forward to our next international movie night: it's on February 6, hosted by Gerbold which means it is French. Very French We will be watching 'Don’t look now… We’re being shot at!' (La grande vadrouille). It's a 1966 French comedy film about two ordinary Frenchmen helping the crew of a Royal Air Force bomber, shot down over Paris, make their way through German-occupied France to escape arrest.
There will be pizzas at 18:30 and the movie at 19:00.
See you there
Huge Congratulations to Mark Rudner for winning the Niels Bohr Institute's teaching award 2017 for his great work. Have a look here to see why the students thought he should win (but don't read the last sentence if you want your day to remain cringe free). http://www.nbi.ku.dk/…/mark-rudner-receives-the-niels-bohr…/
The next international movie night is probably THE ONE YOU'VE BEEN WAITING FOR: it's got the famous Danish guy in. You know the one. There will be pizza as always for those who have signed up so get on it.
It's that time of the month again. You know what I mean. Qdev-all is coming up! You can always check out the schedule and get more info about the talks at http://qdev.nbi.ku.dk/qdev-all-group-meetings/)
Be there on Friday January 26th from 1.15 – 3.15 in Auditorium 2 at HCØ.

Frederik Sønderby Nathan:
Stability of the anomalous Floquet phases
The power of half: Results towards Majorana-assisted charge qubit
Check out this really nice overview of quantum computing and spin qubits given by our very own Fabio Ansaloni for Spin-NANO. Thanks Fabio https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U3ELtXnHEhw&feature=share
A great article about some work done by Filip Malinowski and Frederico Martins on some new results in spin qubits. https://phys.org/news/2017-12-qubits-reverse.html Congratulations guys!
