In cooperation with the Aspelmeyer Group (University of Vienna), ACIN was able to cool the motion of an optically trapped nanoparticle into the quantum ground state at room temperature. Also, we achieved a very precise estimation of the particle’s position and velocity, as close to the Heisenberg limit as no one did before.
These cutting-edge results are published in Nature Volume 595 Issue 7867, 15 July 2021

We are happy that these achievements have also been taken up by media and are presented to the general public:
