The ”la Caixa” Foundation has announced and awarded fellowships for the second call of their Postdoctoral Junior Leader programme. Of the forty-five fellowships awarded this year, two are for ICFO postdoctoral researchers. Congratulations also to my dear colleague Alexandre Dauphin.
In this work we, Torsten V. Zache, Fred Jendrzejewski, Maciej Lewenstein and Erez Zohar use ideas of quantum error correction/quantum control to enforce a local non-Abelian symmetry. For more see https://arxiv.org/abs/2012.08620
In this work Maciej Lewenstein, Aikaterini Gratsea, Andreu Riera-Campeny, Albert Aloy, Anna Sanpera and me estimate and in some cases calculate the number of quantum mechanical machines (represented by CPTP maps) fulfilling specific tasks. For more information see https://arxiv.org/abs/2011.06113
