Universal efficient compilation: Solovay-Kitaev without inverses
Tudor Giurgica-Tiron, Stanford University
Join us for Quantum Today, where we sit down with researchers from the University of Waterloo’s Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) to talk about their work, its impact and where their research may lead.
April 14 is World Quantum Day! Join Qubit by Qubit for a lunch-time event, Inclusive Quantum Future.
Spend the lunch hour with Qubit by Qubit considering how to ensure the future of QIST is diverse. Hear from a moderated panel of quantum experts about their personal experiences and insights into DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) in the field, including panelists such as Joan Étude Arrow, Master's student at the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) and Clarice Aiello from UCLA's Center for Quantum Science and Engineering.
Quantum sensors allow us to measure with incredible accuracy, precision and selectivity. Future quantum devices that achieve these ultimate sensing qualities by harnessing the complexities of atoms, photons and semiconductors will play a critical role in improving applications such as medical technology, radar, geological exploration, molecular imaging and more.
Join alum Guanru Feng as she shares her career journey and talks about current research.
Guanru Feng is an Applied Scientist at SpinQ Technology, a quantum computing hardware and software company, where she focuses on nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) desktop quantum computing platforms and superconducting qubit systems.
Local-dimension-invariant stabilizer codes
Protection of quantum information is a central challenge in building a quantum computer. Quantum error-correcting codes can correct for logical errors that occur in the system. A particularly well-studied category is stabilizer codes, such as the 9-qubit Shor code, as these are the quantum analogue of classical additive codes. Qudits (particles with local-dimension greater than 2) have more computational basis states per particle than qubits and retain this feature in stabilizer codes.
