Transformative Quantum Technologies

The event will feature a panel of four speakers who will share how their agency or organization supports start-ups and commercialization of IP, including funding sources and services available to faculty and start-ups. Each panelist will provide a brief presentation and respond to a set of questions followed by a Q&A session. Informal networking will take place between 1:00pm and 1:30pm.

Carbon Based Flexible and Multi-Component Self-Powered Devices

Dogan Sinar

Carbon and its allotropes have been researched intensively for their potential applications in various fields including energy storage/generation, sensor technology, and wearable electronics. Graphene and graphene oxide have especially drawn attention during the last decade due their unique electrical, chemical, and mechanical properties.

Last time we looked at unitary correlation sets, and obtained an analogue of Tsirelson's problem that is equivalent to the original one. In this talk, we'll see how unitary correlations can be thought of as strategies for a certain class of two-player (extended) non-local games, called quantum XOR games. Moreover, we'll see that Connes' embedding problem is equivalent to determining whether every quantum XOR game has the same winning probability in the commuting model as in the approximate finite-dimensional model.

This presentation will delve into a practical example of a patent procedure associated to a specific quantum technology: quantum random number generator. We will explore the specifics of the technology and its applications, review previously existing approaches and define the inventive step, explore the phrasing of the claims, and revisit the prior patents from the freedom-to-operate point of view.

Customising nonlinear optical sources for quantum information

Master's Candidate: Jeremy Kelly-Massicotte

Tuesday, May 14, 2019 — 12:00 PM EDT

Speaker: Thomas K. Hunter and Neil Henderson

Abstract:

A lot of different concepts and possibilities have been discussed. The final session will recap those and put them in perspective, with emphasis on the relevance to a "typical" university start up and the people involved.


This is the final lecture in the CryptoWorks21 Intellectual Property (IP) Management Lunch and Learn Lecture Series. Knowledgeable speakers will give in-depth presentations that build on previous sessions.

“Quantum physics” has taken its position with “rocket science” in pop culture as a shorthand for frighteningly complicated science. Quantum physics has also taken on a sort of magical connotation in fiction, with features like entanglement, superposition, and tunneling, spurring imagination. But where does the science draw the line? How much is joyful speculation, and how much is disregard for reality? And if it’s always seen as either magical or scary, how does that affect the perception of quantum science?
