Quantum safety made in Germany – Launch of industrial alliance

First released by DIVQSec, translated from German. German industry association for quantum security (DIVQSec) founded with the goal of promoting industrially usable solutions for quantum secure communication and cryptography through national value chains and thereby ensuring technological sovereignty The cryptographic protection of Germany’s critical infrastructure, sensitive data in companies or […]

RoFL – a cooperation of Technical University of Deggendorf and qutools

Cost-effective and accurate measurement of free-form lenses First released by THD Press Office, translated from German The RoFL research project focuses on increased measuring accuracy in robots. Photo: P. Bachhuber – Medienstürmer The Technology Campus Teisnach Optics of the Technical University of Deggendorf (THD) is known far beyond the borders […]

Video clips for quantum physics experiments

Explanatory video clips In the recent days, we recorded some videos explaining the two quantum physics science kits quED and Quantenkoffer. This also includes a step by step adjustment process for the heralded single photon source. You can have a look on YouTube. SPDC source The photon source of our […]

Playing xylophone by 3D laser tracking

3D laser tracking on passive sphere At the LASER World of PHOTONICS in June 2019, qutools presented its laser tracking system based on the interferometer quDIS. Playing the xylophone The tracking unit traced a reflecting sphere and measured the distance interferometrically. The sphere was mounted on a stick to use […]

What do you write songs about?

We at qutools are huge Feynman fans. His contributions to physics (OK, they are a little too evolved for me to judge) were special enough to win him a Nobel Prize. He apparently also contributed quite significantly in finding the reason for the Challenger catastrophe. But on top of all […]

DPG meetings in Berlin and Erlangen – quRace statistics

Last month at the DPG meetings in Erlangen and Berlin, our quTAG measured the time of the laps in our Slot Car race. In total, we had 5140 laps from 248 players – we had a lot of fun and I hope you had as well! Congratulations to “Martin H.” […]

Laser – World of Photonics – quRace statistics

At the Laser – World of Photonics 2017 in Munich, we had a slot car race game which we called “quRace”. Our quTAG was used to determine the lap time with ps precision – a bit of an overkill, but fun to see. Here are some statistics about the race: […]
