Optical pulses are used to quantum mechanically entangle two diamonds several centimeters apart. Quantum entanglement in the motion of macroscopic solid bodies has implications both for quantum technologies and foundational studies of the boundary between the quantum and classical worlds. Entanglement is usually fragile in room-temperature solids, owing to strong interactions both internally and with the noisy environment. We generated motional entanglement between vibrational states of two…

The ability to establish nonlocal macroscopic quantum correlations through path indistinguishability rather than entanglement offers the opportunity to greatly expand quantum macroscopy theory and application, even though it was not true nonlocal entanglements.
Quantum teleportation from light beams to vibrational states of a macroscopic diamond
An experimental demonstration of quantum teleportation from light beams to vibrational states of a macroscopic diamond under ambient conditions is reported, clearly exceeding the classical limit of 2/3.
Quantum Correlation Between Distant Diamonds
An important step is taken by demonstrating entanglement between oscillation patterns of atoms—phonon modes—of two diamond samples of millimeter size at room temperature, separated by a macroscopic distance of about 15 cm.
X-ray-generated heralded macroscopical quantum entanglement of two nuclear ensembles
This work investigates theoretically a new implementation which employs more robust x-ray quanta to generate heralded entanglement between two crystal-hosted macroscopical nuclear ensembles, paving the way for first quantum communication protocols that use x- Ray qubits.
Quantum memories and large-scale quantum coherence based on Raman interactions
Applied research into quantum technologies and fundamental research into the foundations of quantum mechanics run hand in hand, since our understanding of quantum correlations both advances, and is

Observations of entanglement between two atomic ensembles located in distinct, spatially separated set-ups are reported, representing significant progress in the ability to distribute and store entangled quantum states.
Mapping photonic entanglement into and out of a quantum memory
A protocol where entanglement between two atomic ensembles is created by coherent mapping of an entangled state of light by splitting a single photon and performing subsequent state transfer, which will allow ‘on-demand’Entanglement of atomic en assembles, a powerful resource for quantum information science.
Quantum ground state and single-phonon control of a mechanical resonator
This work shows that conventional cryogenic refrigeration can be used to cool a mechanical mode to its quantum ground state by using a microwave-frequency mechanical oscillator—a ‘quantum drum’—coupled to a quantum bit, which is used to measure the quantum state of the resonator.

Upon entangling a spatial binary alternative of a photon with its polarization, one can use single photons to study arbitrary 2-qubit states. Sending the photon through a Mach-Zehnder interferometer,

It is shown that even complex systems, with more than 1,000 internal degrees of freedom, can be prepared in quantum states that are sufficiently well isolated from their environment to avoid decoherence and to show almost perfect coherence.
Strong dispersive coupling of a high-finesse cavity to a micromechanical membrane
A cavity which is detuned by the motion of a 50-nm-thick dielectric membrane placed between two macroscopic, rigid, high-finesse mirrors is demonstrated, which segregates optical and mechanical functionality to physically distinct structures and avoids compromising either.
