Wavelength selective thermal emitters using nitride quantum wells and photonic crystals
Dr. Dongyeon Daniel Kang, Kyoto University
Wavelength selective thermal emitters are highly desired for the development of the compact/energy-efficient spectroscopic sensing systems capable of detecting various gases such as COx, CH4, and NOx, which are strongly needed in environmental science, medical care, and other industrial applications. In addition, for the latter applications, dynamic control of thermal emission intensity is important for such emitters because synchronous detection can increase the signal-to-noise ratio significantly.

Observations reveal the cosmos to be astonishingly simple, and yet deeply puzzling, on the largest accessible scales. Why is it so nearly symmetrical? Why is there a cosmological constant (or dark energy) and what fixes its value? How did everything we see emerge from a singular “point” in the past?

The quantum query complexity of a function f measures how many bits of the input a quantum computer must look at in order to compute f.

Shape and cutoff in superconducting qubits, work fluctuations in correlation creation, and critical commentary
Master's Candidate: Emma McKay
Following my previous seminar talk on embezzlement of entanglement, this talk introduces a more general version of the problem — self-embezzlement. Instead of embezzling a pair of entangled state from a catalyst, self-embezzlement aims to create two copies of the catalyst state using only local operators.
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.
