Add to Calendar 9/16/2020 4:00 pm 9/16/2020 America/Chicago Physics Colloquium - "Quantum Information With Photons" DESCRIPTION:

Quantum information has the potential to be a transformative technology in the coming decades enabling secure information sharing, fundamental metrological advantages, and massive computational speedup for some classically intractable problems. Light plays an important role in many quantum information systems, particularly for transmitting quantum bits, or qubits. I will give a broad overview of the role that optical photons can play in quantum computing and quantum networking. This includes a discussion of generating light that is suitable for quantum information applications, inducing effective interactions between photons to enable entangling operations, and engineering light-matter interfaces for reversible mapping of quantum information. I will highlight recent experimental results toward all of these goals and discuss my research plans here at Illinois.

The ZOOM link will be sent on Wednesday morning to the Physics Faculty, Graduate student, PDRA, and AP mailing lists. If you are not on one of those lists and are interested in attending, please email Suzanne Hallihan at shalliha@illinois.edu for the link.
