Entangled: The series

Quantum mechanics reveals that at its core, the world is not as it seems – it is far more interesting.
 
In the quantum world, outcomes are counter-intuitive, differing from what we expect based on our everyday experiences. The particle physicist Richard Feynman remarked that this means we seem to have to walk “a logical tightrope” when we talk about a quantum system.

Realization of a quantum network that enables ecient long-distance entanglement distribution would allow for multiple impressive applications with quantum key distribution being the most prominent one.

Abstract: We all want to be the nice guy, but we do not want to finish last. How should we respect the IP of others, particularly confidential information and what should we expect of others when we provide confidential information to them? Simple steps that can be taken to meet obligations and preserve confidentiality will be discussed. You may also have obligations to funding agencies and the University. The UW IP policy will be discussed along with issues of ownership and employee confidentiality.

The combination of two-dimensional (2D) materials and functional oxide has been attracted in electrical transport study. Many researchers expected synergetic performance from this interesting structure. And the field effect transistor (FET) scheme was widely used to study it. Here, we successfully demonstrated graphene FET device which is fabricated on top of SrTiO3 (STO).

There is strong evidence that a sufficiently large fault-tolerant quantum computer would solve certain computational problems exponentially faster than any classical computer. How can quantum algorithms and complexity theory help guide the way forward in our current era of small and noisy quantum computers?

Abstract: Software is a key asset of any new business. How do you protect the results of weeks or months of hard labour? Who owns the software and how do I mange its development to ensure its inherent value is maintained? Should I use Open Source, or even contribute to Open Source? What are the benefits and how does this measure up against the risks?

“He who is good with a hammer thinks everything is a nail.”

- Modified quote from the original by Abraham Maslow


How does one sell security? How does one commercialize such nebulous concepts such as “Trust”, “Security” and “Cryptography”?  Cryptography, which is just one building block of security, is based on other more abstract building blocks such as algorithms which have a foundation on hard mathematical problems.
