Two new papers published on Thursday in Science push the boundaries of the quantum effects physicists can achieve at a macroscopic scale. Both studies observed such effects in thin aluminum “drums” about the size of a red blood cell.
“The tricks described in these two papers are ways of evading what you might have thought is the limit on measuring forces coming from the Heisenberg uncertainty principle,” says Aashish Clerk, a condensed matter physicist at the University of Chicago, who was not involved with either study.

R esearchers have big ideas for the potential of quantum technology, from unhackable networks to earthquake sensors. But all these things depend on a major technological feat: being able to build and control systems of quantum particles, which are among the smallest objects in the universe. That goal is now a step closer with the publication of a new method by University of Chicago scientists.
Chicago Prize Postdoctoral Fellowship in Theoretical Quantum Science
Chicago Prize Postdoctoral Fellows will have the opportunity to interact with both computer scientists and physicists at the University of Chicago. Applications focused on collaborative and cross-disciplinary research are especially encouraged.
Deadline: Rolling deadline
Certificate Program in Quantum Engineering and Technology
This four-day program will aid participants in gaining an understanding of the basics of quantum information science (QIS). Particular attention will be focused on QIS applications, such as quantum sensing, quantum communication, and quantum computing.
Program dates: April 26-29, 2021
