Transformative Quantum Technologies

There are many paths one can take as a researcher interested in bringing new capabilities to industry. One increasingly common route is to join a start-up. There are many genres of start-ups, from the early-stage university spin-offs to VC-backed firms with multiple trenches of funding under their belt. How do you value these different set of experiences and what are the opportunities?

We present two concrete examples where the Renyi rather than just the von Neumann entanglement entropy is necessary in order to obtain certain insights into quantum many-body systems.

Sunday, June 23, 2019 (all day) to Tuesday, June 25, 2019 (all day)

Co-organized by the National Research Council of Canada 

The meeting brings together the Canadian community of scientists and engineers who perform research and development on spin-based quantum technologies. This will be the third annual workshop, with the main goal to foster spin qubit research and attract and train highly qualified personnel for the emerging quantum technologies sector in Canada.

Nonlocality is a useful quantum resource in applications such as quantum key distribution and quantum random number generation. We study nonlocality in a multi-qubit model—quantum kicked top (QKT). This system is of particular interest because it displays regular behavior, bifurcations and chaotic behavior in the classical limit, and is one of the few chaotic systems that has been experimentally realized.

Academic Writing Workshop #2

Elisabeth van Stam (UW Writing and Communication Centre)

The best scientific writing is clear, concise and easily comprehended by its intended audience. Learn skills for writing in the sciences, including identifying and correcting common errors to write with precision and fluidity.

Andrea Coladangelo, Caltech

In a non-local game, two or more non-communicating, but entangled, players cooperatively try to win a game consisting of a one-round interaction with a classical referee. In this talk, I will describe a two-player non-local game with the property that an epsilon-close to optimal strategy requires the players to share an entangled state of dimension 2^{1/poly(epsilon)}.

Wednesday, June 12, 2019 — 12:00 PM EDT

Join us for this week's IQC Student Seminar, featuring surprise speakers and a pizza lunch.

IQC Colloquium

Stephen Bartlett, The University of Sydney

Monday, May 27, 2019 (all day) to Friday, June 7, 2019 (all day)
Undergraduate School on Experimental Quantum Information Processing logo

Join us at the Institute for Quantum Computing for a two-week introduction to the theoretical and experimental study of quantum information processing.

During the Undergraduate School on Experimental Quantum Information Processing (USEQIP) will be exposed to lectures and experiments on the following topics and more.
