August 2017   Autonomous Quantum Clocks: Does Thermodynamics Limit Our Ability to Measure Time? just published in Physical Review X. For a pedestrian introduction and summary, see the APS viewpoint article by Tony Short.

June 2017   New proposal and implementation of a "self-testing" quantum random number generator published in Physical Review Applied. A nice collaboration with Hugo Zbinden's group. Listen to a short interview of Nicolas Brunner for CQFD, Radio Suisse Romande.

September 2016   First PhDs graduates in the group. Joe Bowles and Marco Tulio Quintino have successfully defended their thesis, entitled "EPR steering and its application to fundamental questions in Bell nonlocality" and "Quantum entanglement and measurement incompatibility as resources for nonlocality" respectively. Well done, and all the best pour la suite!!!
