Colloquium: Ania Jayich, University of California, Santa Barbara
Physics and Astronomy - Milestone Series
Corey Rae McCrae
Department of Physics & Astronomy and Institute for Quantum Computing
Back by popular demand, CryptoWorks21 will once again launch the Intellectual Property (IP) Management Lunch and Learn Lecture Series! Our knowledgeable speakers will provide more in-depth presentation built from the previous sessions.
The lectures are designed for researchers working in areas related to information technology, including cryptography and quantum technology.
Benjamin Lovitz of the Department of Physics and Astronomy is presenting his thesis:
Practical Quantum Fingerprinting and Appointment Scheduling
Benjamin is supervised by IQC faculty member Norbert Lütkenhaus.
Jie Lin of the Department of Physics and Astronomy is presenting his thesis:
Security proofs for quantum key distribution protocols by numerical approaches
Jie is supervised by IQC faculty member Norbert Lütkenhaus.

As we approach the development of a quantum computer with tens of
well-controlled qubits, it is natural to ask what can be done with
such a device. Specifically, we would like to construct an example of
a practical problem that is beyond the reach of classical computers,
but that requires the fewest possible resources to solve on a quantum
computer. We address this problem by considering quantum simulation of
spin systems, a task that could be applied to understand phenomena in
Producing Polarization Entangled States Using a Bright Single Photon Source
Morgan Mastrovich, Master's Student
Hear Raymond Laflamme, founding director of the Institute for Quantum Computing and John von Neumann Chair in Quantum Information and Edwin Outwater, Music Director Laureate of the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony, as they have a conversation about the making of Does God Play Dice (Quantum Etude).
Radio host Mike Farwell will moderate this conversation about their collaboration that integrated quantum physics and music to create a surprisingly random performance piece. You’ll even have the to watch highlights of the April 20 performance.
Yidun Wan - Fudan University
The Quantum Innovators in science and engineering workshop brings together the most promising young researchers in quantum physics and engineering. Guests are invited for a four-day conference aimed at exploring the frontier of our field.
