On the geometry of entanglement

Rotem Liss, Technion – Israel Institute of Technology

Entanglement is an important concept in quantum information and computing. In this talk, I present a simple geometrical analysis of all rank-2 quantum mixed states. The analysis is complete for all the bipartite states, and is partial for all the multipartite states.

Towards Integrated Photonics for Quantum Computation

Hugo Cable, University of Bristol, UK

I will give an overview of work at the Centre for Quantum Photonics towards implementation of large-scale linear-optical quantum computing (LOQC) using quantum photonics. Our current research addresses the key obstacles to scalable LOQC, namely overcoming nondeterminism, achieving loss tolerance, and manufacturability.

Error Models and Error Thresholds

Ken Brown, Georgia Tech

The error threshold for fault-tolerant quantum computation depends
strongly on the error model.  Most calculations assume a depolarizing
model, which allows for efficient calculations based on random
applications of Pauli errors.  We have been exploring how the
threshold changes for both non-unital and coherent operations.  I will

A photonic link for donor spin qubits in silicon

Stephanie Simmons, Simon Fraser University

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.
