Southwest Quantum Information and Technology

  • By Leena Aggarwal
  • 8 January 2018

SQuInT is a consortium of universities, national labs, and industrial labs, with concentration in the southwestern United States. The SQuInT meeting has a strong tradition of mixing invited talks from world-class leading researchers with talks by junior researchers across the SQuInT network, to promote an interactive environment. The meeting brings together the broad community of researchers in Quantum Information Science, including experimental physicists, theorists, and computer scientists.

The 20th Annual SQuInT Workshop is being organized by the Center for Quantum Information and Control (CQuIC). The CQuIC is a research center co-located at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque and the University of Arizona in Tucson. Research at CQuIC is focused on on quantum information and computation, quantum control and measurement, quantum metrology, and quantum optics and communication, and they have extensive theoretical and experimental research programs in all these areas

    Workshop on 2D Quantum Metamaterials

    • By Leena Aggarwal
    • 8 January 2018

    The workshop on 2D Quantum Metamaterials is dedicated to the commonalities between fabrication, theoretical prediction, and alternative approaches to tunable quantum materials, including cold-atom realizations. Theoretical efforts served by this new simulation platform include Hubbard model systems, design of 2D materials, and other exotic materials.

    The workshop will be organized around:

    1. all-invited talks by leading researchers

    2. breakout sessions for discussions and future plan

    3. published Workshop Summary Report

    Quantum Information Science and Engineering Network: Building "Triplets" to Bridge Academia and Industry

    • By Leena Aggarwal
    • 13 December 2017

    Quantum Information Science and Engineering Network (QISE-NET) is housed at the Chicago Quantum Exchange, an intellectual hub and partnership for advancing academic and industrial efforts in the science and engineering of quantum information. QISE-NET is built "Triplets" to Bridge Academia and Industry which is sponsored by the National Science Foundation within the “Quantum Leap” and “Growing Convergent Research” Big Ideas. TRIPLETS program offers excellent opportunities for graduate students in all areas of quantum information science and engineering.

     

    NASA Workshop on Quantum Computing for Aeroscience and Engineering

    • By Leena Aggarwal
    • 15 November 2017

    November 7-8, 2017, physics students and scientist from diffrent places were arrived at the NASA Langley research center for attending Quantum Computing workshop.

    The objective of this workshop was to bring together experts on quantum information science and computation to understand the latest developments and current challenges in algorithms, hardware, and technology transition to engineering applications. The aims of workshop was to accelerate technology transition towards outstanding engineering problems that were expected to be achievable using quantum computations in the coming decade. The workshop’s goals were included developing a roadmap for success towards solution strategies for engineering applications. The interested stakeholders were presented or taken part in discussion on challenges to transition the current state-of-the-art to large scale engineering and data science related problems. 

     

    Discussions were focused on the following four areas:

    • Quantum algorithms
    • Quantum computing hardware
    • Manufacturing and control of quantum systems
    • Engineering applications

    Federal Funding: Multidisciplinary University Research Initiative (MURI)

    Year of Diversity Workshop: Strategies to Help Women Succeed in STEM Professions

    Speaker(s): 
    Chandralekha Singh
    Dates: 
    Thursday, March 9, 2017 - 3:00pm to 5:00pm

    Many groups are severely under-represented in STEM professions. This workshop will explore strategies to help women thrive in STEM professions. We will first focus on the barriers to their advancement before discussing strategies to promote and support diversity in STEM disciplines and raise overall standards. Faculty from the School of Arts & Sciences, engineering school, and medical school will be invited to attend. After the workshop, we will invite the participants to dinner to foster a supportive environment.
