Professor Adrian Lupascu

Department of Physics and Astronomy, Institute for Quantum Computing

We are happy to be holding our third Optics and Photonics Seminar on Thursday, Dec. 2nd, at 4:00 pm. Adrian is interested in the quantum dynamics of various types of physical systems and the application of quantum effects to build new types of detectors and quantum information processors. He will be giving us a talk on quantum control of three level systems implanted using superconducting devices.

Wednesday, September 15, 2021 — 12:30 PM EDT

On Wednesday, September 15, PHYS 10 will introduce Phys Club and additional information regarding Phys 10, with members of the organization committee for both present. We will present information about what is planed for the terms events, give some background context and invite a lively discussion.  This will be a good chance to connect with other physics and astronomy students from all years, who are on campus and remote. 

All welcome

The meeting will occur in person in AL116 and remotely on Teams through the ink below.
