ResOU articles on quantum physics printed for reading offline

2021-5-27(Thu)

ResOU, the Osaka University research portal, has seen a sharp increase in page views of articles on quantum physics written by OU scientists. These articles are now available in a printed version (in Japanese).

Research topics are presented in this fine-featured booklet, which incorporates a solid amount of white space to ensure optimal readability. You can enjoy reading these research topics just like you would choose dishes from a menu at a restaurant.

The "special" on this menu is quantum physics, which is drawing attention worldwide.

Do you find yourself seeing and hearing more about quantum computing these days?

Quantum technology applications include semiconductors used in smartphones and computers and quantum cryptography to ensure the security of communications, as well as magnetic resonance imaging (​MRI), which is the medical application of nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. Quantum technology isn't science fiction, it's real technology used in our everyday lives. Enjoy!

Features of this booklet

1. Just like ResOU, which offers the fruits of OU research, we made this booklet at a manageable size (297 mm x 182 mm) to look like a menu of a high-class restaurant.

2. A significant amount of white space enhances the readability of the text.

3. A white cover represents quantum particles, which are invisible but exist all around us.

4. Photos not used on the ResOU website are contained in this booklet, creating a whole new atmosphere.
