Fabrication and Growth of 111 SiNWs for Mechanical Spin-Detection

Pardis Sahafi, Institute for Quantum Computing

In our group, vertical Si nanowires grown on a 111 surface are used for force detection in nanoscale NMR and ESR. These measurements require a very long (20 µm) and minimally tapered vertical Si nanowires, to be used as nano-mechanical oscillators with a high quality factor (Q ~ 104).

IQC and the Department of Physics at the University of Waterloo welcome Shahpoor Moradi, University of Calgary

Quantum computation has been developed as a computationally efficient paradigm to solve problems that are intractable with conventional classical computers. Quantum computers have the potential to support the simulation and modeling of many complex physical systems, not just quantum ones, significantly more rapidly than conventional supercomputers.

APS March Meeting Student Practice Talk Session

Silicon MOSFET quantum dots with simplified metal-gate geometry

Eduardo Barrera

Monday, February 25, 2019 — 1:30 PM EST

Arthur Mehta, IQC / Department of Pure Mathematics

In this talk we continue our discussion of parallel repetition for non-local games. We will begin with a brief recap of the previous talk and the famous counterexample due to Feige. We then take a  look at a game that has interesting outcomes in the context of the quantum tensor product model. We will conclude by reviewing some of the major results on this topic for a variety of correlation sets.
