Scanning low energy electron microscopes (SLEEM) operating with primary beam energy below 500 eV have proved to be a powerful tool for investigating many samples that are difficult to being observed using standard (S)TEM techniques. In case of low energies an appropriate strategy of collecting detecting signal electrons is important to have a sufficient signal and reasonable contrast. Many principles were developed for this purpose and nowadays, they are a standard part of commercial machines.

A photonic link for donor spin qubits in silicon”

Atomically identical donor spin qubits in silicon offer excellent native quantum
properties, which match or outperform many qubit rivals. To scale up such systems it
would be advantageous to connect silicon donor spin qubits in a cavity-QED
architecture. Many proposals in this direction introduce strong electric dipole
interactions to the otherwise largely isolated spin qubit ground state in order to couple
to superconducting cavities. Here I present an alternative approach, which uses the

Quantum mechanics sets fundamental limits on how well we can distinguish different states of a physical system with intrinsic quantum noise. This noise sets the ultimate sensitivity limit for conventional coherent communication with coherent states of light, referred to as the quantum-noise limit (QNL).
