IoP Colloquium: Christopher Monroe (University of Maryland)
Ion trap guru for QI
The IoP colloquium of this month will be given by Prof. Christopher Monroe from the University of Maryland.
Prof. Christopher Monroe's research group focuses on the use of individual atoms and photons for fundamental studies of quantum physics and applications in quantum information science.
A long term goal of our research is the realization of large-scale quantum information networks that could store and process information in a way that could eclipse the performance of conventional computers. Our main tools are electromagnetic atom traps and lasers, providing control of the most pristine source of quantum bits: trapped atomic ions.
Drinks after the colloquium will be served in the Newtonzaal at CWI.
Room: Turingzaal CWI
