Entangled photons offer an exquisite probe to correlated dynamics within a material system. In my talk I shall discuss some recent experiments and our theoretical investigations into developing an input/output scattering theory approach that connects an incoming photon Fock state to an outgoing Fock state, treating both the internal (material) and photon dynamics on a consistent footing. As proof of concept, we show how entangled photons can probe the inner workings of a model system undergoing spontaneous symmetry breaking.

PhD Seminar

Chunhao Wang, PhD candidate

David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science

We give a dissipative quantum search algorithm that is based on a novel dissipative query model. If there are $N$ items and $M$ of them are marked, this algorithm performs a fixed-point quantum search using $O(\sqrt{N/M}\log(1/\epsilon))$ queries with error bounded by $\epsilon$. In addition, we present a continuous-time version of this algorithm in terms of Lindblad evolution.

PhD Seminar

Chunhao Wang, PhD candidate

David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science

We present a quantum algorithm for simulating the dynamics of Hamiltonians that are not necessarily sparse. Our algorithm is based on the assumption that the entries of the Hamiltonian are stored in a data structure that allows for the efficient preparation of states that encode the rows of the Hamiltonian. We use a linear combination of quantum walks to achieve a poly-logarithmic dependence on the precision.

Technology Investment and Mentorship

Researchers and early-stage companies may discover numerous investment options on their path to commercial success. While some mechanisms focus on a certain phase of technology development, others promise to fuel growth over a wide R,D&D spectrum, possibly independent of prior investment status. This panel covers a sampling of programs and investment strategies - from technology scouting to angel capital - for mobilizing intellectual property towards impactful deployment.

The invention of quantum physics in the early 20th century forced scientists to reconsider many cherished ideas from classical physics, leading to revolutionary changes in our scientific and philosophical understanding of the universe. Quantum phenomena have also proven to be a rich source of metaphors and inspiration for fiction.

Metal halide perovskites (MHPs) are revolutionizing the solar cell research field - the record power conversion efficiency of MHPs based solar cells has reached 22.7%, which rivals that of silicon solar cells. What is particularly exciting about MHPs is that they can be manufactured into solar cell devices at low-costing using low temperature solution processing. Based on these attributes, MHPs have been called the “next big thing in photovoltaics” and worldwide research efforts have grown explosively.

Undergraduate School on Experimental Quantum Information Processing (USEQIP) 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.

Thursday, June 14, 2018 — 12:00 PM EDT

Speaker: Tom 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.
