Quantum technology for the curriculum

Join us for three days at the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) for Schrödinger's Class November 30 – Decemeber 2, 2018. You will have the opportunity to attend lectures and engage in hands-on activities focused on the integration of quantum technology into the current teaching curriculum. We will discuss quantum information science and technology to give you a deeper understanding of quantum mechanics.

The deadline to apply is Monday, October 22, 2018.

Monday, October 29, 2018 — 2:30 PM EDT

Susan Clark, Sandia National Laboratories

Sandia National Laboratories is a multidisciplinary National Laboratory in the United States dedicated to developing advanced technologies. Here, I will explain the ongoing work in quantum information science using trapped ions. In particular, I will describe requirements of surface ion traps fabricated at Sandia’s MESA facility. Additionally, I will discuss results obtained using these traps relevant to building a quantum information platform, including ion shuttling, electric field control, and high-fidelity quantum operations.

Rydberg atoms, which possess large-dipole moments and the resulting strong dipole- dipole interactions, have been intensively investigated owing to its potential applications in diverse fields ranging from quantum nonlinear optics to quantum information and computation. Exclusive examples includes photon blockade, attractive photons and single-photon transistors, to mention a few.

Wolfgang Ketterle - MIT

The properties of ultracold atoms can be profoundly modified with the help of laser beams. They can modify the wavefunction of neutral atoms in such a way that they show behavior of charged particles, e.g. electrons in high magnetic fields. In this way, synthetic magnetic fields and spin-orbit coupling have been realized, and a supersolid phase has been observed. A supersolid is superfluid and breaks translational symmetry, i.e. it has shape.
