Day of Open Days at Institute of Physics
On November 7th from 9:00-16:00 the doors of our offices are open and everyone is welcome to meet us. We are happy to show you how we are contributing to quantum technologies, to explain to you our scientific puzzles, answer almost all your curious questions about quantum physics and leave you with new questions (even if you do not have any). Do you know which name of Slovak physicists is hidden in the picture on the right?
Deň otvorených dverí Fyzikálneho ústavu SAV
Pozývame Vás na stretnutie s nami dňa 7. novembra medzi 9:00 a 16:00, kedy sú dvere na našom pracovisku otvorené. Radi Vám ukážeme akým spôsobom sa podieľame na výskume kvantových technológií, vysvetlíme Vám naše vedecké otázky, odpovieme na takmer na každú Vašu otázku o kvantovej fyzike a nechmáme Vás odísť s novými otázkami aj v prípade, že zatiaľ žiadne nemáte. Viete meno ktorého slovenského fyzika je skryté v obrázku?

D3$ifru7 - šifrovacia hra v rámci Európskej noci výskumníkov 2018
In collaboration with organizers of European Researcher's Night 2018 we have designed a cipher game competition. Do you want to try? Let us help you that ciphers are in Slovak language. Let's play with us. Are you more than 16 years old? Age is just a number, but if you are below 16, your chances are a bit smaller. We are seeking for best candidate.
[img] 8.6.2018 Publication Shorter unentangled proofs for ground state connectivity
Can one considerably shorten a proof for a quantum problem by using a protocol with a constant number of unentangled provers? We consider a frustration-free variant of the QCMA -complete ground state connectivity (GSCON) problem for a system of size n with a proof of superlinear size. We show that we can shorten this proof in QMA(2): There exists a two-copy, unentangled proof with length of order n, up to logarithmic factors, while the completeness–soundness gap of the new protocol becomes a small inverse polynomial in n.

Gold Medal of Slovak Academy of Sciences for Prof. Vladimír Bužek
For his extraordinary achievements in physics and also to celebrate his anniversary Prof. Vladimír Bužek was awarded the highest prize of Slovaka Academy of Sciences - SAS Gold Medal (in Slovak "Zlatá medaila SAV"). Prof. Bužek founded in Slovakia the school of quantum optics and quantum information processing. He is recognised worldwide for his discoveries on quantum cloning machines, quantum protocols for secret sharing and anonymous voting, quantum estimations, quantum programmable processors, etc. | +++ | (in Slovak)
