How does the world crystallise from quantum weirdness? We might just have the answer, says a new article on the cover of the July 14, 2018 issue of the New Scientist. And that answer could be given by the TEQ project.

The TEQ teams work to establish the large-scale limit of quantum mechanics trying to answer questions that are so far unaddressed: why we have no evidence of non-classical behavior in the macroscopic world? How is quantumness lost as we abandon the microscopic domain?

Dr Catalina Oana Curceanu, the PI of the LNF-INFN group of TEQ, was among the winners of the “100 Award for the Centenary” awarded by the Ministry for Romanians Abroad on the occasion of the Centenary of the Romanian Great Union, on 22nd June 2018 at the Accademia de Romania in Rome (Italy). The prize – which was awarded to ten Romanian citizens resident in Italy for their achievements in academic, scientific, social and cultural fields – rewarded Catalina’s commitment in her research in nuclear and quantum physics, as well as in scientific dissemination.

TEQ has launched a Facebook page and a Twitter account. On these accounts all the latest news and updates from results, published papers and activities of the project will be posted. Through these, the project will be able to keep you updated as we work to test the limits of quantum mechanics.

TEQ is one of only 26 funded proposals out of 374 submitted.

“The panel considers this proposal to be of excellent quality […] Research methods and approaches developed within this project will provide grounds for further developments in other fields where high precision measurements are required. The results themselves will provide a major breakthrough in our understanding of quantum physics. The project has a capacity to also place the EU at the forefront of ongoing research world-wide aimed at investigating the interface between quantum physics and gravity.

The TEQ project is submitted for the call H2020-FETOPEN-1-2016-2017.

TEQ will establish the large-scale limit of quantum mechanics by pursuing a novel research programme. This roadmap will enable the test of quantum effects for systems whose mass is orders of magnitude larger than that employed in the most successful quantum experiments to date, thus closing the gap with the macroscopic world.

The device that will be built will exhibit exquisite sensitivity to frequency and displacements, thus embodying a significant contribution of explicit technological nature to the design of quantum empowered metrological sensors.
