Illuminating the dark matter with gravitational waves

Using Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA), a team of astronomers at the University of Zurich have observed gravitational waves emitted by black holes. These shock...

Geometry of spacetime as a quantum information processing device

In the race for building a scalable quantum computer, devices using photons as a carrier of quantum information are in the front-runner. The reason...
