Research

CSU scholars make important progress in the field of optical quantum chips
Academician Guangcan Guo’s team at the Chinese University of Science and Technology has made important progress in the research of optical quantum chips. The team’s research group of Ren Xifeng, in collaboration with the research groups of Dong Jianwen of Sun Yat-sen University (SYSU) and Dai Daozin of Zhejiang University (ZJU), has realized quantum interference in the energy valley correlated topological insulator chip structure based on the photonic energy valley Hall effect.

CSU scholars observe memory effects in the multi-step evolution of open quantum systems
An important progress in the experimental study of open quantum systems has been made by the team of academician Guangcan Guo at CSU. In collaboration with theoretical physicists from the Austrian Academy of Sciences, the team, including Chuanfeng Li and Biheng Liu, has experimentally observed the non-Markovian nature of multi-step evolution of open quantum systems and demonstrated the operational dependence of quantum memory effects.

SUSTech scholars make research progress in the direction of magnetic axion insulator
The group of Qihang Liu, associate professor of the Department of Physics and Institute of Quantum Science and Engineering at SUSTech, has made progress in the field of magnetic topological materials. Theory shows that magnetic topological materials (such as axion insulators) with half-integer quantized quantum anomalous Hall conductance at the surface have high promise in the design of low-dissipation electronic devices and quantum computing devices.
