Quantum Internet and quantum voting

In a news article in Nature, ITAMP postdoc Nicole Yunger Halpern is quoted about the realization and applicability of quantum voting machine and process (https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-018-07129-y). Last year, she published an article about precisely this scheme and how it may be possible to violate the Arrow's impossibility theorem (named after the economist Kenneth Arrow) (https://journals.aps.org/pra/abstract/10.1103/PhysRevA.95.062306).

One Atom to Rule Them All: A New Class of Quantum Matter Observed

In a recent joint theory/experimental effort, the first Rydberg polaron has been realized in a quantum boson gas. This work observes the formation of exotic oligomeric Rydberg molecules (dimer, trimer, tetramer, pentamer, ...) in a lego construction to many-body Rydberg polarons. The theory was led at ITAMP by Richard Schmidt, Hossein Sadeghpour and Eugene Demler in Physics. https://www.cfa.harvard.edu/news/2018-03.
