Measuring Millikelvin Temperatures with Quantum Dots

Alexander Högele and his team have used quantum dots to probe the thermal states of n-doped gallium arsenide (GaAs), a semiconductor that acts as an electron reservoir.

Final proof for optimal encoding strategies in optical communication

MPQ theorist proves that Gaussian encoding guarantees minimum output entropy and hence ultimate capacity of optical communication channels.
