About this event About this Webinar: In today's modern world, microelectronics has touched every aspect of our lives. None of us can imagine or live in a world without personal computers, smart phones, and probably very soon autonomous cars. To continue its expansion and go beyond the traditional semiconductor technologies, hardware researchers and technologists must know how transistors, memories, sensors, and actuators work. They must also understand how these devices are integrated and packaged, how their proximity redefines design, and how their reliability and security are ensured. Different from the past, today, there is also the need for these researchers to understand the field of algorithms, data science, networks, and machine learning that give cyber-physical systems their power.The Microelectronics and Nanotechnology (MN) area is one of the seven areas in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Purdue University West Lafayette campus. The MN area consists of twenty-plus faculty members with active research and instructional programs in Nanoelectronics and Nanomaterials, Spintronics and Quantum Technologies, Probabilistic Computing, Energy Conversion, Micro and Nanoelectromechanical Systems (MEMS/NEMS), and Computational Nanotechnology. Experimental programs are located primarily in a state-of-the-art facility, the Birck Nanotechnology Center. Purdue is also the home of the NSF-sponsored Network for Computational Nanotechnology (NCN) that created the science gateway nanoHUB.org with nearly 100,000 users worldwide. In today's webinar, ten Purdue ECE faculty from the MN area will give high level overviews of their individual groups' research and visions for a New Era Electronics.

Quantifying causal influences in the presence of a quantum common cause
Thu., May. 13, 2021, 7:15am-8:30am (EDT/GMT-0400) [Start time local timezone converter]
selfURL
Quantum mechanics challenges our intuition on the cause-effect relations in nature. Some fundamental concepts, including Reichenbach's common cause principle or the notion of local realism, have to be reconsidered. Traditionally, this is witnessed by the violation of a Bell inequality. But are Bell inequalities the only signature of the incompatibility between quantum correlations and causality theory? Motivated by this question, we introduce a general framework able to estimate causal influences between two variables, without the need of interventions and irrespectively of the classical, quantum, or even postquantum nature of a common cause. In particular, by considering the simplest instrumental scenario-for which violation of Bell inequalities is not possible-we show that every pure bipartite entangled state violates the classical bounds on causal influence, thus, answering in negative to the posed question and opening a new venue to explore the role of causality within quantum theory. ___________________________________________________ Kind regards, Jarek Korbicz, Filip Maciejewski, Micha?

When speaker provides it, in original or sanitized form, it will be uploaded at the chapter website - www.ieee.org/scveps. Older presentation may also be accessed at same page. Summary: Superconducting qubits are a leading candidate for constructing a large-scale quantum processor due to their lithographic scalability and relatively long coherence times. 3D qubit packaging, enabling the integration of more chips with greater functionality, higher I/O counts, and smaller pad pitches - while maintaining qubit coherence - is critical for scalable computing architecture. In this talk, I will present a microbump-based assembly approach to produce three-tier stacks with a qubit chip on the top, superconducting multi-chip-module (SMCM) on the bottom, and an interposer chip with superconducting through-silicon vias (TSVs) in the middle. I will discuss our work developing a double bump-bonding process to create the qubit-interposer-SMCM stack, focusing on electrical characterization, alignment accuracy, spacing and co-planarity.

View details Preparing for Quantum Technology Education: A 21st Century Learning Challenge Friday, 14 May '21 2pm - 6pm EDT STARBASE Hanscom AFB INFORMATION Details Federal agencies, large hi-tech companies, and entrepreneurial investors have committed considerable resources toward research and development of quantum technologies. The expectation is one of sweeping change, with profound implications for our economy and our national security. No individual in our nation nor across the developed world would be unaffected. And yet, there is a key assumption in this vision that is often overlooked. There is no wide-ranging labor force that will fill in the key roles, contribute to new businesses, work on new applications, and in all ways develop and disseminate the quantum technologies. The prospects for a future workforce are equally dim unless new educational curriculum and educational pathways are created to provide and encourage entry to the world of applied quantum technology. The purpose of this workshop is to promote discussion on the topic of defining, creating, and preparing all elements of quantum educational pathways. This includes a broad range of activities from curriculum development to developing business programs to high school and college preparation. Presentations will raise issues, propose solutions, and report developments. The presentations will grade directly into panel discussion with audience participation encouraged.

Hello everyone, This week we'll be having guest speaker Professor Inna Vishik presenting her research on emergent phases in quantum materials on Friday from 5-6pm. Professor Vishik has also provided a short blurb of what she'll be discussing: "Quantum materials exhibit electronic phenomena characterized by the theme of emergence-the idea that more is different and the behavior of electrons in a crystalline solid cannot always be inferred from the behavior of a single electron. These novel materials may serve as platforms for future quantum technologies, and simultaneously, may require quantum computers to explain their mysterious behaviors. In this talk, I will motivate the connection between novel materials phenomena and quantum technologies, introduce promising quantum materials, and discuss how my group uses the photelectric effect to precisely measure how electrons move around in these materials." If you want to learn more about the research Professor Vishik has done, you can take a look at her website here: https://vishiklab.faculty.ucdavis.edu/ And you can join the meeting using the zoom link below: https://ucdavis.zoom.us/j/93993720747?pwd=djU1WnIzUEdOTjZSelJKSldWZEdjQT09 As always you can follow this link to access our archive of recorded lectures: https://www.qcatdavis.org/workshops/ If you prefer a book format instead, you can access John's textbook covering core quantum computing concepts here: https://github.com/QC-at-Davis/QCC We look forward to seeing you there, Tina Sorensen Outreach and Marketing Director Quantum Computing Club @ UC Davis

This workshop will convene leaders engaged in advancing quantum systems for computing, communications, and sensing applications. While rapid progress has been made in the last decade, key challenges exist in the areas of electronic materials, devices, and system integration and design. A wide of array of materials and devices have been shown to be promising for quantum systems. Despite this diversity, in all cases, information is encoded in device quantum states and stringent requirements are placed on device manufacturing; in particular, precision, reproducibility, and scalability. In addition, quantum states must be protected from unintended environment stimuli, such as temperature and radiation, which can cause system errors due to uncontrolled state change. The diverse set of quantum system platforms range from those just entering the commercial market, such as superconducting circuits and ion traps and Si-based single-electron sensors, to exciting research prospects, such as point-defect based sensors and two-dimensional topological materials. The national infrastructure supporting quantum system development is evident and provides a strong foundation for vital research and development activities. However, the translation of research activities to the realization of high-performance, commercial quantum systems requires additional crucial activities. The Quantum Devices and Systems Manufacturing Workshop will promote discussion around identifying key challenges and research activities that will advance quantum systems. The focus areas include: 1) Materials and Devices Challenges in the key technologies: Si-based, superconducting devices, point defects in semiconductors, and topological materials, 2) device and materials integration challenges and interfaces, and 3) scaling, packaging, and refrigeration. The Workshop sessions will address important manufacturing challenges across technologies, as these can serveto generate innovation and collaborations leading to rapid advances in science and engineering. The virtual workshop format will enable wide participation and stimulation of ideas across the diverse community involved in quantum information research.

Title: Quantum Simulations of Many-body Effects in Isoelectronic Systems. Abstract: The emerging field of quantum simulation of many-body systems is widely recognized as a very important application of quantum computing. A crucial step towards its realization in the context of many-electron systems requires a rigorous quantum mechanical treatment of the different interactions. We investigate the physical effects beyond the mean-field approximation, known as electron correlation, in the ground state energies of atomic systems using the classical-quantum hybrid variational quantum eigensolver (VQE) algorithm. To this end, we consider three isoelectronic species which span three classes, a neutral atom, an anion, and a cation. We employed the unitary coupled-cluster (UCC) ansatz to perform a rigorous analysis of two very important factors that could affect the precision of the simulations of electron correlation effects within a basis, namely mapping and backend simulator. We carry out our calculations with four such basis sets. The results obtained are compared with those calculated by using the full configuration interaction, traditional coupled-cluster, and the UCC methods, on a classical computer, to assess the precision of our results. A salient feature of the study involves a detailed analysis to find the number of shots (the number of times a VQE algorithm is repeated to build statistics) required for calculations with IBM Qiskit's QASM simulator backend, which mimics an ideal quantum computer. Biography: Sumeet K is working as an intern at Qu & Co, Amsterdam, The Netherlands in the application of quantum computation to quantum chemistry. This specifically includes tackling the electronic-structure problem on the quantum computer/simulator.

https://commencement.umd.edu/ The University of Maryland announces today plans to celebrate 2021 spring graduates. Spring 2021 commencement exercises will be conducted in-person at Maryland Stadium, and live-streamed at commencement.umd.edu on Friday, May 21, 2021. In collaboration with Prince George's County, plans for commencement prioritize safety while celebrating the success of graduates. The ceremony will include remarks from Peter Chapman, President and CEO of IonQ, an industry leader in quantum computing, founded on UMD research among others, and headquartered in the University of Maryland Discovery District. "All of us at IonQ are very proud to call UMD home, just as I am very proud to share this important moment with the Class of 2021," said Chapman. "Now more than ever, these young people represent our shared faith in a better future, driven by bold thinking right here in Maryland. I hope only to inspire them, the next generation of builders, as they have already inspired me." Before coming to IonQ in 2019, Chapman spent nearly five years as a director of engineering for Amazon Prime, managing hundreds of engineers to ensure speedy delivery, including Amazon's two-days-or-less shipping option. Along his tech and entrepreneurial journey, he made software breakthroughs that protect mutual funds, support e-readers, and assist the blind in reading; he founded the video game company Level Systems Inc., and invented the first sheet music-reading synthesizer capable of recreating orchestral instruments. Chapman also helped create the world's first fully automated algorithmic trading system for the stock and commodity markets. The son of a NASA scientist-astronaut, Chapman began his career at age 16 in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Artificial Intelligence Lab. "I share Peter's passion for the future of computing and technological advancements as we aim to solve many of the grand challenges of our time," said Darryll J. Pines, University of Maryland President. "I look forward to his compelling, insightful remarks as he addresses our graduates who have persevered through a challenging year, and I thank him for his continued commitment to excellence in College Park." Graduates plus two guests are invited to attend physically distanced commencement activities in person at Maryland Stadium. Based on the school or college of the graduate, they will be invited to attend one of two main commencement ceremonies on campus.

Title: Arithmetic Circuits For Quantum Computing Abstract: Quantum algorithm is an algorithm that runs on a realistic model of quantum computation. Quantum circuits of arithmetic operations are vital in designing quantum hardware for Shor's factoring algorithm, solving discrete log problem and quantum cryptanalysis, securing cryptosystems, and circuit design of quantum algorithms. Quantum arithmetic circuits are widely used in quantum algorithms for quantum image orientation, pattern recognition and template matching. The quantum arithmetic circuits are vital to design circuits for scientific computing and quantum algorithms such as Poisson equation, linear systems of equations HHL, and Quantum Rejection Sampling. This talk will discuss quantum circuits for arithmetic functions with multi-metric constraints and quantum circuits for basic image processing based on proposed arithmetic circuits.

The 11th series of seminars organized by QRST. Speakers: Chao-Yang Lu (USTC) and Sergio Boixo (Google). About this event Quantum Research Seminars Toronto consist of two 30 min talks about some Quantum Computation topic. Seminars are given by high-level quantum computing researchers with the focus on disseminating their research among other researchers from this field. We encourage to attend researchers regardless of their experience as well as graduate and undergraduate students with particular interest in this field. Basic notions on quantum computing are assumed, but no expertise in any particular subject of this field. In this 11th series of seminars, the speakers will be Chao-Yang Lu (University of Science and Technology of China) and Sergio Boixo (Google Quantum AI). Their talks are titled "Gaussian boson sampling for quantum computational advantage" and "Beyond-classical computing", respectively. We will send a Zoom link to those who register for this event 2 days, 2 hours and 10 min before the event starts. The event recording, slides and chat history will be published in our Youtube channel and sent to the registered participants. Looking forward to seeing you all! ___________________________________________________________________ Talk 1: Gaussian boson sampling for quantum computational advantage The main challenge for scaling up photonic quantum technologies is the lack of perfect quantum light sources. We have pushed the parametric down-conversion to its physical limit and produce two-photon source with simultaneously a collection efficiency of 97% and an indistinguishability of 96% between independent photons. Using a single quantum dot in microcavities, we have produced on-demand single photons with high purity (>99%), near-unity indistinguishability, and high extraction efficiency-all combined in a single device compatibly and simultaneously. Based on the high-performance quantum light sources, we have implemented boson sampling-which is an intermediate model of quantum computing, a strong candidate for demonstrating quantum computational advantage and refuting Extended Church Turing Thesis-with up to 76 photon clicks after a 100-mode interferometer. The photonic quantum computer, Jiuzhang, yields an output state space dimension of 10^30 and a sampling rate that is 10^14 faster using the state-of-the-art simulation strategy on supercomputers. About the speaker: Chao-Yang Lu was born in 1982 in Zhejiang, China. He obtained Bachelor's degree from the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in 2004, and PhD in Physics from the Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge in 2011. Since 2011, he is a Professor of Physics at USTC. His current research interest includes quantum computation, solid-state quantum photonics, multiparticle entanglement, quantum teleportation, superconducting circuits, and atomic arrays. His work on quantum teleportation was selected as by Physics World as 'Breakthrough of the Year 2015'. His work on single-photon sources and optical quantum computing was selected by Optical Society of American (OSA) as one of 'Optics in 2016', 'Optics in 2017', and 'Optics in 2019'. His work on photonic quantum computational advantage was selected by 'UNESCO Netexplo 10 Digital Innovation'. He has been awarded as Fellow of Churchill College (2011), Hong Kong Qiu Shi Outstanding Young Scholars (2014), National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars (2015), Nature's top ten 'science star of China' (2016), OSA Fellow (2017), Fresnel Prize from the European Physical Society (2017), AAAS Newcomb Cleveland Prize (2018), Huangkun Prize from Chinese Physical Society (2019), Nishina Asian Award (2019), Xplorer Prize (2019), IUPAP-ICO Young Scientist Prize in Optics (2019), OSA Adolph Lomb Medal (2020), Rolf Landauer and Charles H. Bennett Award in Quantum Computing (2021), World Economic Forum Young Global Leader (2021), and James P. Gordon Memorial Speakership (2021). He is the Chair of Quantum 2020 and has served as an editorial board member in international journals such as Quantum Science and Technology, PhotoniX, Advanced Photonics, Advanced Quantum Technology, Science Bulletin, and iScience. Talk 2: Beyond-classical computing The promise of quantum computers is that certain computational tasks might be executed exponentially faster on a quantum processor than on a classical processor. A fundamental challenge is to build a high-fidelity processor capable of running quantum algorithms in an exponentially large computational space. I'll explain an experiment published in Nature in 2019 in which we carried out a computational task on an experimental quantum processor vastly outperforming current supercomputers. I will briefly review recent advances in complexity theory and simulation algorithms related to this experiment. Finally I'll mention some other recent experiments performanced in the same universally programmable platform. About the speaker: Sergio Boixo leads the Quantum Computer Science group at Google Quantum AI. He was previously a research professor and quantum engineer at USC, and a postdoc at Harvard and Caltech. Sergio has a doctorate in physics from UNM, a master's degree in physics from UAB, is a computer engineer from UCM, and studied mathematics and philosophy at UNED. In a past life, Sergio worked as a computer engineer at the European Central Bank and other companies.

He holds join appointments in the departments of Chemistry and Physics, is the Director of the USC Center for Quantum Information Science and Technology, and is the co-Director of the USC-Lockheed Martin Center for Quantum Computing. He did his postdoctoral work at UC Berkeley after receiving his Ph.D. in Physics from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in 1997. Prior to joining USC in 2005 he was a faculty member at the University of Toronto for five years. Lidar is a recipient of a Sloan Research Fellowship, a Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship, is an elected Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the American Physical Society (APS), and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), and was a Moore Distinguished Scholar in Physics at Caltech. Professor Daniel Lidar's abstract of the talk: As quantum computing proceeds from perfecting physical qubits towards testing logical qubits and small scale algorithms, an urgent question being confronted is how to decide that critical milestones and thresholds have been reached. Typical criteria are gates exceeding the accuracy threshold for fault tolerance, logical qubits with higher coherence than the constituent physical qubits, and logical gates with higher fidelity than the constituent physical gates. In this talk I will argue in favor of a different criterion I call "quantum algorithmic breakeven", which focuses on demonstrating an algorithmic scaling improvement in an error-corrected setting over the uncorrected setting. I will present evidence that current experiments with commercial quantum annealers have already crossed this threshold. I will also discuss our latest evidence for a 'limited quantum speedup' with such devices. The lessons we have learned from experimenting with commercial devices with many noisy qubits will hopefully inform other approaches to quantum computing. Professor Paul G. Kwiat Paul G. Kwiat is the Bardeen Chair in Physics, at the University of Illinois, in Urbana-Champaign, and is the inaugural Director of the Illinois Quantum Information Science and Technology Center (IQUIST). A Fellow of the American Physical Society and the Optical Society of America, he has given invited talks at numerous national and international conferences, and has authored over 160 articles on various topics in quantum optics and quantum information, including several review articles. His research focuses on optical implementations of quantum information protocols, particularly using entangled-and hyperentangled-photons from parametric down-conversion. He received the Optical Society of America 2009 R. W. Wood Prize, as the primary inventor of the world's first sources of polarization-entangled photons from down-conversion, which have been used for quantum cryptography, dense-coding, quantum teleportation, quantum metrology, and realizing optical quantum gates. He has also done pioneering work on high-efficiency single-photon detectors, frequency-upconversion-based detection, and high-speed quantum random number generation. Professor Paul Kwiat's Talk: Quantum-enhanced and quantum-inspired metrology: Engineering more precise measurements It is now well established that the use of entangled quantum states can in some cases lead to sqrt(N) enhancements in the precision of quantum-limited measurements. Here we discuss two examples - based on recycled quantum weak measurements and on frequency non-degenerate two-photon interference - which demonstrate metrological benefits of a different sort, including robustness to systematic noise in one case and noise and loss in the other. Professor Alexander Lvovsky Alexander Lvovsky is an experimental physicist. He was born and raised in Moscow and did his undergraduate in Physics at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology. In 1993, he became a graduate student in Physics at Columbia University in New York City. His thesis research, conducted under the supervision of Dr. Sven R. Hartmann, was in the field of coherent optical transients in atomic gases. After completing his Ph. D. in 1998, he spent a year at the University of California, Berkeley as a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Physics, and then five years at Universit?t Konstanz in Germany, first as an Alexander von Humboldt postdoctoral fellow, then as a research group leader in quantum-optical information technology. In 2004 he became Professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Calgary, and from autumn 2018, a professor at the University of Oxford. Alexander has also been a part of the team that created the Russian Quantum Center, and, since 2013, he has been working there as a part-time research group leader. Alexander is a past Canada Research Chair, a lifetime member of the American Physical Society, a Fellow of the Optical Society and a winner of many awards - most notably the International Quantum Communications award, commendation letter from the Prime Minister of Canada and the Emmy Noether research award of the German Science Foundation. His research has been featured by CBC, NBC, Wired, New Scientist, MIT Technology Review, TASS, Daily Mail, and other media. Professor Alexander Lvovsky's abstract of the talk: Optics and machine learning are natural symbionts. I will present three examples of how these fields can benefit each other based on our recent experimental work: ? optical neural networks and their all-optical training; ? robotic alignment of optical experiments; ? application of machine learning in linear-optical far-field superresolution imaging. Dr. Clarice D. Aiello Dr. Clarice D. Aiello is a quantum engineer interested in how quantum physics informs biology at the nanoscale. She is an expert on nanosensors harnessing room-temperature quantum effects in noisy environments. Aiello received her Ph.D. from MIT in Electrical Engineering and held postdoctoral appointments in Bioengineering at Stanford, and in Chemistry at Berkeley. She joined UCLA in 2019, where she leads the Quantum Biology Tech (QuBiT) Lab. Abstract of the talk: From nanotech to living sensors unraveling the spin physics of biosensing at the nanoscale Substantial in vitro and physiological experimental results suggest that similar coherent spin physics might underlie phenomena as varied as the biosensing of magnetic fields in animal navigation and the magnetosensitivity of metabolic reactions related to oxidative stress in cells. If this is correct, organisms might behave, for a short time, as 'living quantum sensors' and might be studied and controlled using quantum sensing techniques developed for technological sensors. I will outline our approach towards performing coherent quantum measurements and control on proteins, cells and organisms in order to understand how they interact with their environment, and how physiology is regulated by such interactions. Can coherent spin physics be established - or refuted! - to account for physiologically relevant biosensing phenomena, and be manipulated to technological and therapeutic advantage? Professor Enrique J. Galvez -- Short Professional Bio Professor Galvez obtained a Ph.D. in physics from the University of Notre Dame, Indiana, in 1986. He has been member of the faculty at Colgate University since 1988-currently the Charles A. Dana Professor of Physics and Astronomy. His research interests include atomic and optical physics and physics education. Recent research projects include studies of light in complex scalar and vector modes, and photon entanglement. Educational projects include modernizing the introductory physics curriculum and the development new laboratories to teach about light and quantum mechanics. He is a Fellow of OSA and has received two APS awards. Talk: Photon Quantum Mechanics and Education Technological advances in the production and detection of single photons has opened new opportunities for teaching the fundamentals of quantum mechanics via hands-on laboratories. The rise of quantum information has only underscored the need for students to confront the counter intuitive aspects of quantum physics and their contrast with classical physics. The future workforce needs to understand these concepts deeply along with the quantum formalism and statistics. Photon laboratories provide a platform for understanding both the fundamental concepts and their application to physical systems. Dr. Alan Migdall Dr. Migdall's current interests broadly cover quantum optics with research related to single-photon sources, detectors, processors, and quantum memory for quantum cryptography and quantum computation. Specific efforts involve correlated two-photon light (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1MaOqvnkBxk), nonlinear optics, parametric downconversion, Raman scattering, microstructure fibers, multi-particle entanglement, randomness generation (http://www.nist.gov/itl/csd/ct/nist_beacon.cfm), and classical and quantum metrology. Migdall leads the Quantum Optics Group of the Quantum Measurement Division at NIST. He is a fellow of the Joint Quantum Institute at the University of Maryland and a fellow of the American Physical Society. He has organized a number of conferences and workshops on single photon detector and source technologies, as well as the applications and metrology of that technology. He founded the Single Photon Workshop, which debuted at NIST in Gaithersburg in 2003 and has continued biannually at metrology and national labs in the US and around the world. He was editor of a book entitled Single Photon Generation and Detection. Migdall has been part of a number of science outreach efforts including the OSA Eastman/Presidential Speaker program, giving lectures at numerous universities and colleges, as well as local high schools, middle schools, and elementary schools. He has provided research opportunities for graduate, undergraduate, and high school students. In addition, he was the science advisor for a National Academy of Sciences middle school optics curriculum program. Migdall began his career at NIST with an NRC postdoctoral fellowship in laser cooling and trapping of neutral atoms, was made a fellow of the American Physical Society in 2007, awarded a NIST Bronze medal in 2009 for his efforts in single photon technology, in 2013 and 2015 awarded patents related to single photon technology, and in 2016 was part of the team that was awarded a Commerce Dept. Gold medal for the long-sought goal of achieving a very strong test rejecting local realistic models as possible alternatives to quantum mechanics. Dr. A. L. Migdall - Talk, Part I: The Quantum Age - Measurements: For all time, For all people Joint Quantum Institute, University of Maryland & National Institute of Standards and Technology, Gaithersburg, MD, USA Measurement is arguably the basis of all civilization. We are born into this world measuring our environment and trying to understand it and we continue measuring for the rest of our lives. All of our measurements should rely on standards that ideally are accurate, unchanging, and universally defined. While such a solid foundation for our measurement systems has been dream since before the time of the French Revolution, it is only with the dawn of the quantum age that it could be realized. As a result, humankind just recently achieved an advance that goes beyond the level of a once-in-a-lifetime event, it achieved an advance that, hopefully, is just a once-on-a-planet event. I hope to convey the momentousness of what just occurred. Dr. A. L. Migdall - Talk, Part II: Multiplexing: A path to an ideal single-photon source Joint Quantum Institute, University of Maryland & National Institute of Standards and Technology, Gaithersburg, MD, USASingle-photon sources, inherently nonclassical in their nature, are quite distinct from the light sources of a century ago. And since the first efforts at nonclassical sources of light a half century ago, significant progress has been made. Now, sources that produce photons in pairs, allowing for the heralding of a single photon, are the workhorse of a wide array of applications, from tests of fundamental physics to metrology, and even to biological microscopy. Single-photon sources built from processes that generate photons in pairs rely on either spontaneous parametric down-conversion or spontaneous four-wave mixing and can now achieve production rates of millions of heralded single photons per second in controlled states, with tailored spectral properties and near-perfect spatial modes. However, because these nonlinear optical processes are inherently probabilistic, they cannot simultaneously achieve a high probability of producing a photon and a high single-photon fidelity. This inherent tradeoff can be a severe constraint in many applications. The multiplexing of many of these probabilistic single-photon sources offers a path to overcoming this tradeoff. By having many low-probability-of-generation, but high-fidelity heralded single-photon sources, it is possible to create a system that boosts the probability of successfully generating an output, while retaining high single-photon fidelity. Multiplexing of such sources is achieved through the use of time, space, and/or frequency to parallelize the spontaneous photon creation, then actively switch the photons into a single mode or actively switch the pumping laser based on feedback from heralding detection events. We review some of the history and recent exponential progress in this exciting field. From a few theoretical proposals around the beginning of this millennia, the field has sharply grown: numerous distinct multiplexing schemes have been proposed, with many experiments realized in just the past few years, a rate which is strongly increasing. It seems likely that through the use of source multiplexing, one can expect that ten-photon states at rates of ?103 /s are within immediate reach, and 50 photons, enough for a conclusive quantum advantage over classical computers, are no longer a pipe dream.

He started his career as a mainframe computer design engineer at IBM and subsequently served in a variety of executive roles in marketing, engineering, and operations at Intel, Western Digital, Corning, and several startup companies. Doug holds degrees in computer engineering and management from the University of Illinois and MIT respectively. Abstract of the talk: A Tour Through the Quantum Ecosystem The presentation would show all the different industry players and how they can work together to provide a complete solution to an end user. It shows a model for the complete solution stack from User Community down to the chip of what is needed to make quantum computing a reality.

He holds join appointments in the departments of Chemistry and Physics, is the Director of the USC Center for Quantum Information Science and Technology, and is the co-Director of the USC-Lockheed Martin Center for Quantum Computing. He did his postdoctoral work at UC Berkeley after receiving his Ph.D. in Physics from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in 1997. Prior to joining USC in 2005 he was a faculty member at the University of Toronto for five years. Lidar is a recipient of a Sloan Research Fellowship, a Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship, is an elected Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the American Physical Society (APS), and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), and was a Moore Distinguished Scholar in Physics at Caltech. Professor Daniel Lidar's abstract of the talk: As quantum computing proceeds from perfecting physical qubits towards testing logical qubits and small scale algorithms, an urgent question being confronted is how to decide that critical milestones and thresholds have been reached. Typical criteria are gates exceeding the accuracy threshold for fault tolerance, logical qubits with higher coherence than the constituent physical qubits, and logical gates with higher fidelity than the constituent physical gates. In this talk I will argue in favor of a different criterion I call "quantum algorithmic breakeven", which focuses on demonstrating an algorithmic scaling improvement in an error-corrected setting over the uncorrected setting. I will present evidence that current experiments with commercial quantum annealers have already crossed this threshold. I will also discuss our latest evidence for a 'limited quantum speedup' with such devices. The lessons we have learned from experimenting with commercial devices with many noisy qubits will hopefully inform other approaches to quantum computing. Professor Paul G. Kwiat Paul G. Kwiat is the Bardeen Chair in Physics, at the University of Illinois, in Urbana-Champaign, and is the inaugural Director of the Illinois Quantum Information Science and Technology Center (IQUIST). A Fellow of the American Physical Society and the Optical Society of America, he has given invited talks at numerous national and international conferences, and has authored over 160 articles on various topics in quantum optics and quantum information, including several review articles. His research focuses on optical implementations of quantum information protocols, particularly using entangled-and hyperentangled-photons from parametric down-conversion. He received the Optical Society of America 2009 R. W. Wood Prize, as the primary inventor of the world's first sources of polarization-entangled photons from down-conversion, which have been used for quantum cryptography, dense-coding, quantum teleportation, quantum metrology, and realizing optical quantum gates. He has also done pioneering work on high-efficiency single-photon detectors, frequency-upconversion-based detection, and high-speed quantum random number generation. Professor Alexander Lvovsky Alexander Lvovsky is an experimental physicist. He was born and raised in Moscow and did his undergraduate in Physics at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology. In 1993, he became a graduate student in Physics at Columbia University in New York City. His thesis research, conducted under the supervision of Dr. Sven R. Hartmann, was in the field of coherent optical transients in atomic gases. After completing his Ph. D. in 1998, he spent a year at the University of California, Berkeley as a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Physics, and then five years at Universit?t Konstanz in Germany, first as an Alexander von Humboldt postdoctoral fellow, then as a research group leader in quantum-optical information technology. In 2004 he became Professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Calgary, and from autumn 2018, a professor at the University of Oxford. Alexander has also been a part of the team that created the Russian Quantum Center, and, since 2013, he has been working there as a part-time research group leader. Alexander is a past Canada Research Chair, a lifetime member of the American Physical Society, a Fellow of the Optical Society and a winner of many awards - most notably the International Quantum Communications award, commendation letter from the Prime Minister of Canada and the Emmy Noether research award of the German Science Foundation. His research has been featured by CBC, NBC, Wired, New Scientist, MIT Technology Review, TASS, Daily Mail, and other media. Professor Alexander Lvovsky's abstract of the talk: Optics and machine learning are natural symbionts. I will present three examples of how these fields can benefit each other based on our recent experimental work: ? optical neural networks and their all-optical training; ? robotic alignment of optical experiments; ? application of machine learning in linear-optical far-field superresolution imaging. Dr. Clarice D. Aiello Dr. Clarice D. Aiello is a quantum engineer interested in how quantum physics informs biology at the nanoscale. She is an expert on nanosensors harnessing room-temperature quantum effects in noisy environments. Aiello received her Ph.D. from MIT in Electrical Engineering and held postdoctoral appointments in Bioengineering at Stanford, and in Chemistry at Berkeley. She joined UCLA in 2019, where she leads the Quantum Biology Tech (QuBiT) Lab. Abstract of the talk: From nanotech to living sensors unraveling the spin physics of biosensing at the nanoscale Substantial in vitro and physiological experimental results suggest that similar coherent spin physics might underlie phenomena as varied as the biosensing of magnetic fields in animal navigation and the magnetosensitivity of metabolic reactions related to oxidative stress in cells. If this is correct, organisms might behave, for a short time, as 'living quantum sensors' and might be studied and controlled using quantum sensing techniques developed for technological sensors. I will outline our approach towards performing coherent quantum measurements and control on proteins, cells and organisms in order to understand how they interact with their environment, and how physiology is regulated by such interactions. Can coherent spin physics be established - or refuted! - to account for physiologically relevant biosensing phenomena, and be manipulated to technological and therapeutic advantage? Professor Enrique J. Galvez -- Short Professional Bio Professor Galvez obtained a Ph.D. in physics from the University of Notre Dame, Indiana, in 1986. He has been member of the faculty at Colgate University since 1988-currently the Charles A. Dana Professor of Physics and Astronomy. His research interests include atomic and optical physics and physics education. Recent research projects include studies of light in complex scalar and vector modes, and photon entanglement. Educational projects include modernizing the introductory physics curriculum and the development new laboratories to teach about light and quantum mechanics. He is a Fellow of OSA and has received two APS awards. Talk: Photon Quantum Mechanics and Education Technological advances in the production and detection of single photons has opened new opportunities for teaching the fundamentals of quantum mechanics via hands-on laboratories. The rise of quantum information has only underscored the need for students to confront the counter intuitive aspects of quantum physics and their contrast with classical physics. The future workforce needs to understand these concepts deeply along with the quantum formalism and statistics. Photon laboratories provide a platform for understanding both the fundamental concepts and their application to physical systems. Dr. Alan Migdall Dr. Migdall's current interests broadly cover quantum optics with research related to single-photon sources, detectors, processors, and quantum memory for quantum cryptography and quantum computation. Specific efforts involve correlated two-photon light (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1MaOqvnkBxk), nonlinear optics, parametric downconversion, Raman scattering, microstructure fibers, multi-particle entanglement, randomness generation (http://www.nist.gov/itl/csd/ct/nist_beacon.cfm), and classical and quantum metrology. Migdall leads the Quantum Optics Group of the Quantum Measurement Division at NIST. He is a fellow of the Joint Quantum Institute at the University of Maryland and a fellow of the American Physical Society. He has organized a number of conferences and workshops on single photon detector and source technologies, as well as the applications and metrology of that technology. He founded the Single Photon Workshop, which debuted at NIST in Gaithersburg in 2003 and has continued biannually at metrology and national labs in the US and around the world. He was editor of a book entitled Single Photon Generation and Detection. Migdall has been part of a number of science outreach efforts including the OSA Eastman/Presidential Speaker program, giving lectures at numerous universities and colleges, as well as local high schools, middle schools, and elementary schools. He has provided research opportunities for graduate, undergraduate, and high school students. In addition, he was the science advisor for a National Academy of Sciences middle school optics curriculum program. Migdall began his career at NIST with an NRC postdoctoral fellowship in laser cooling and trapping of neutral atoms, was made a fellow of the American Physical Society in 2007, awarded a NIST Bronze medal in 2009 for his efforts in single photon technology, in 2013 and 2015 awarded patents related to single photon technology, and in 2016 was part of the team that was awarded a Commerce Dept. Gold medal for the long-sought goal of achieving a very strong test rejecting local realistic models as possible alternatives to quantum mechanics. Dr. A. L. Migdall - Talk, Part I: The Quantum Age - Measurements: For all time, For all people Joint Quantum Institute, University of Maryland & National Institute of Standards and Technology, Gaithersburg, MD, USA Measurement is arguably the basis of all civilization. We are born into this world measuring our environment and trying to understand it and we continue measuring for the rest of our lives. All of our measurements should rely on standards that ideally are accurate, unchanging, and universally defined. While such a solid foundation for our measurement systems has been dream since before the time of the French Revolution, it is only with the dawn of the quantum age that it could be realized. As a result, humankind just recently achieved an advance that goes beyond the level of a once-in-a-lifetime event, it achieved an advance that, hopefully, is just a once-on-a-planet event. I hope to convey the momentousness of what just occurred. Dr. A. L. Migdall - Talk, Part II: Multiplexing: A path to an ideal single-photon source Joint Quantum Institute, University of Maryland & National Institute of Standards and Technology, Gaithersburg, MD, USASingle-photon sources, inherently nonclassical in their nature, are quite distinct from the light sources of a century ago. And since the first efforts at nonclassical sources of light a half century ago, significant progress has been made. Now, sources that produce photons in pairs, allowing for the heralding of a single photon, are the workhorse of a wide array of applications, from tests of fundamental physics to metrology, and even to biological microscopy. Single-photon sources built from processes that generate photons in pairs rely on either spontaneous parametric down-conversion or spontaneous four-wave mixing and can now achieve production rates of millions of heralded single photons per second in controlled states, with tailored spectral properties and near-perfect spatial modes.

This workshop will convene leaders engaged in advancing quantum systems for computing, communications, and sensing applications. While rapid progress has been made in the last decade, key challenges exist in the areas of electronic materials, devices, and system integration and design. A wide of array of materials and devices have been shown to be promising for quantum systems. Despite this diversity, in all cases, information is encoded in device quantum states and stringent requirements are placed on device manufacturing; in particular, precision, reproducibility, and scalability. In addition, quantum states must be protected from unintended environment stimuli, such as temperature and radiation, which can cause system errors due to uncontrolled state change. The diverse set of quantum system platforms range from those just entering the commercial market, such as superconducting circuits and ion traps and Si-based single-electron sensors, to exciting research prospects, such as point-defect based sensors and two-dimensional topological materials. The national infrastructure supporting quantum system development is evident and provides a strong foundation for vital research and development activities. However, the translation of research activities to the realization of high-performance, commercial quantum systems requires additional crucial activities. The Quantum Devices and Systems Manufacturing Workshop will promote discussion around identifying key challenges and research activities that will advance quantum systems. The focus areas include: 1) Materials and Devices Challenges in the key technologies: Si-based, superconducting devices, point defects in semiconductors, and topological materials, 2) device and materials integration challenges and interfaces, and 3) scaling, packaging, and refrigeration.

When does reinforcement learning stand out in quantum control?

Topic: When does reinforcement learning stand out in quantum control? Abstract: A comparative study on state preparation. Reinforcement learning has been widely used in many problems, including quantum control of qubits. However, such problems can, at the same time, be solved by traditional, non-machine-learning methods, such as Krotov algorithms, and it remains unclear which one is most suitable when the control has specific constraints. In this regard, I will talk about the comparative performance of three reinforcement learning algorithms: tabular Q-learning, deep Q-learning, and policy gradient, and two non-reinforcement learning algorithms: stochastic gradient descent and Krotov algorithms, in the problem of preparing a desired quantum state. Bio: Asad is a mathematics undergraduate student at the City University of Hong Kong, with minors in physics and computer science. Asad has been working on the intersection of quantum information and machine learning throughout his undergraduate.

YOUTUBE: https://youtu.be/AutGlQzPDPU Abstract: One perspective on quantum algorithms is that they are classical algorithms having access to a special kind of memory with exotic properties. This perspective suggests that, even in the case of quantum algorithms, the control flow notions of sequencing, conditionals, loops, and recursion are entirely classical. There is however, another notion of control flow, that is itself quantum. The notion of quantum conditional expression is reasonably well-understood: the execution of the two expressions becomes itself a superposition of executions. The quantum counterpart of loops and recursion is however not believed to be meaningful in its most general form. In this work, we argue that, under the right circumstances, a reasonable notion of quantum loops and recursion is possible. To this aim, we first propose a classical, typed, reversible language with lists and fixpoints. We then extend this language to the closed quantum domain (without measurements) by allowing linear combinations of terms and restricting fixpoints to structurally recursive fixpoints whose termination proofs match the proofs of convergence of sequences in infinite-dimensional Hilbert spaces. We additionally give an operational semantics for the quantum language in the spirit of algebraic lambda-calculi and illustrate its expressiveness by modeling several common unitary operations. Short Bio: Juliana Kaizer Vizzotto is a Professor of Department of Languages and Computing Systems at Federal University of Santa Maria/RS, Brazil. Her research interests are in the field of programming language semantics, functional programming, logics, quantum computing and quantum programming languages. She did her PhD in Computer Science (2006) at Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS) with collaborative period at Indiana University under advisoring of Amr A. Sabry (2004). In 2007, his doctoral thesis received the third place in the Brazilian Computing Thesis Contest provided by the Brazilian Computing Society (SBC).

Laser Cooling of Polyatomic Molecules

selfURL Content Level: 400 (For Quantum Ready)
The tremendous scientific opportunities presented by ultracold molecules have driven rapid progress in both the assembly of diatomic molecules from ultracold atoms and the direct cooling of diatomic and polyatomic molecules. Diatomic species have been magneto-optically trapped and sub-Doppler cooled and their collisions have been studied in several experimental systems, including magnetic traps and merged optical tweezers. The pioneering work that led advances in direct cooling began with Stark deceleration, buffer-gas cooling and loading of traps, buffer-gas beam sources, mechanical slowing, and a variety of electromagnetic trapping and cooling mechanisms. As the field of cold and ultracold molecules has grown, polyatomic molecules have attracted new focus as potential novel quantum resources that have distinct advantages (and challenges) compared to both atoms and diatomic molecules. For example, all polyatomic molecules have long-lived states arising from nuclear motion with angular momentum about the internuclear axis. These states exhibit linear, Debye-level Stark shifts at very low applied electric fields and offer distinct Stark-shifted level structures that are absent in laser-coolable diatomic molecules. These and other features in polyatomic molecules can be applied to quantum simulation, fundamental symmetry tests, searches for dark matter, and particle physics beyond the Standard Model, potentially at the 1 PeV scale. Generic classes of polyatomic molecules have been identified as amenable to laser cooling into the ultracold (~1 ?K) regime. One class is that of metal oxide radicals (MOR), which includes linear, symmetric top, and asymmetric top species. In this talk I will discuss some of the past experiments that brought us to this point, and the challenges and scientific opportunities with the laser cooling of polyatomic molecules. Results on SrOH, YbOH, CaOH and CaOCH3 will be discussed, as well as preliminary work on more complex species. references N. J. Fitch and M. R. Tarbutt Laser cooled molecules arXiv 2103.00968 2021 I.

http://www.confercare.manchester.ac.uk/events/icmm2021/ 17th International Conference on Molecule Based Magnets 14 - 18 June 2021 - ONLINE Welcome to ICMM2021, Manchester. Manchester is the first city of the industrial revolution, where atomic theory was founded by John Dalton, and where Rutherford discovered the atomic nucleus. Molecular magnetism has been a core activity in Manchester since the 1960s with work led by Jack Lewis, Frank Mabbs and David Machin, and so we are very proud of our history. Unfortunately due to the ongoing disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have taken the descision to make the 17th ICMM a fully-online conference. All of our plenary and invited speakers remain, and information regarding programme, abstracts and registration, will be updated on this website as soon as they are finalised. We look forward to virtually welcoming you to Manchester - at least you won't need an umbrella. Prof. Richard Winpenny and Dr Nicholas Chilton Co-Organisers, ICMM2021

YOUTUBE: https://youtu.be/AutGlQzPDPU Abstract: Characterizing unknown quantum systems in a 'device-independent' manner, i.e., achieving this by making use only of the measurement statistics on target quantum system, without prior knowledge of its internal properties and device precisions, is a kind of useful tasks in quantum computation, which allow us to draw reliable conclusions with unreliable quantum devices. In this talk, we will introduce several theoretical results on how to quantify unknown quantum entanglement in a device-independent manner, which involve both bipartite and multipartite cases, and some results have been demonstrated experimentally.

AQC2021 Adiabatic Quantum Computing (AQC) and Quantum Annealing are computational methods that can be used to solve combinatorial optimization and related problems including sampling and quantum simulation. In addition to the existing commercial hardware, several efforts are now underway to manufacture processors that implement these strategies. The tenth International Conference, AQC 2021, brings together researchers from different communities to explore this computational paradigm and related topics. The goal of the conference is to promote a dialogue on the challenges that must be overcome to realize practically useful quantum annealing in existing and near-term hardware. The conference is a sequel to AQC 2012 (Albuquerque), AQC 2013 (London), AQC 2014 (Los Angeles), and AQC 2015 (Zurich), AQC 2016 (Google), AQC 2017 (Tokyo), AQC 2018 (NASA Ames), AQC2019(Innsbruck), and AQC2020(Trieste)

selfURL Content Level: 100 (For Quantum Explorer)
Title: Explaining Circuit Model of Quantum Computing as if it Occurred in an Escape Room Game Abstract: The talk is on teaching the circuit model of quantum computing. It presents a method to explain algorithms on n qubits in n-dimensional space, thus not in 2^n-dimensional space. It is particularly interesting for n=3. Here algorithms can be illustrated using an ordinary cube (which everybody can easily imagine) and not using the 8-dimensional space (which is much harder to imagine). We will illustrate the method with the teleportation protocol. The method was developed at THM (Technische Hochschule Mittelhessen) and turned out to be useful in teaching the circuit model of quantum computing. Speaker's Bio: Dr. Bettina Just got a PhD in Maths and Computer Science from Goethe-University at Frankfurt, then spent more than 15 years in insurance industry, managing IT-projects. Since 2010, I am a full professor at THM (Technische Hochschule Mittelhessen). I am cofounder and organizer of a network "Quanten an HAWn", which ist "quantums at universities of applied sciences". The subject of the talk was developed at THM, and is first published in the book "Quantencomputing kompakt - Spukhafte Fernwirkung und Teleportation endlich verst?ndlich" Springer Verlag: https://www.springer.com/de/book/9783662618882.

Quantum Communications Networks Approved 3/200 Speaker: Dr. Siddarth Joshi, Bristol University Quantum communications relies on a seemingly magical principle of entanglement of two distant particles. At Bristol University, Dr. Joshi's team have created a quantum network of eight receiver boxes at an extremely low cost. The system then uses Quantum Key Distribution which ensures that communications using the system are free from cyber attacks. Dr. Joshi will outline the design of the network and the way quantum physics technology has been developed. As the system is developed there could be the promise of secure global networks being implemented at an affordable price.
