Listening to quantum radio
Researchers at Delft University of Technology have created a quantum circuit that enables them to listen to the weakest radio signal allowed by quantum mechanics. This new quantum circuit opens the door to possible future applications in areas such as radio astronomy and medicine (MRI). It also enables researchers to do experiments that can shed light on the interplay between quantum mechanics and gravity.
Five Vici grants for TU Delft researchers
No less than five TU Delft will each receive 1.5 million euros from the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO).
A global network of radio telescopes exposes the aftermath of a violent generator of gravitational waves
Astronomers have combined radio telescopes from five continents to prove the existence of a narrow stream of material (jet) emerging from the only gravitational wave event involving two neutron stars observed so far. These findings have now been published in the Science magazine by an international team of scientists, led by Giancarlo Ghirlanda from the National Institute for Astrophysics (INAF, Italy). Professor Leonid Gurvits (JIVE and TU Delft) is co-author of the Science paper.
