Embedding theories for quantum simulations on hybrid classical-quantum architectures

One of the oft cited use cases for quantum computing is chemical simulation.  Giulia Galli of the University of Chicago, Chemistry, presents “Embedding theories for quantum simulations on hybrid classical-quantum architectures” at IPAM’s Multiscale Approaches in Quantum Mechanics Workshop. Abstract: We discuss a quantum embedding theory [1] to study spin-defects and impurities in solids, which […]

Solar PV efficiency – new breakthrough!

Solar photovoltaic panels are currently limited to a maximum efficiency of about 30%, and in practice only actually achieve about 20% to 23% efficiency. Now a team in Cambridge has developed a film that can amplify the number of photons that the panel can use, with a potential increase in efficiency to as much as […]

Microwave Amplifiers for Quantum Information Processing with Florent Q. Lecocq

Speaker Florent Q. Lecocq explains the use of microwave amplifiers for QIP. Abstract: In the late 2000s, the application of low-noise parametric amplifiers to cryogenic microwave measurements revolutionized the field of quantum information processing with superconducting circuits. For example, it enabled high-fidelity dispersive qubit readout, a ubiquitous tool in current superconducting quantum computers. Importantly, it […]

Kirsten Eisentraeger on Classical and quantum algorithms for isogeny problems

Kirsten Eisentraeger of Pennsylvania State University presents “Classical and quantum algorithms for isogeny problems” at IPAM’s Quantum Numerical Linear Algebra Workshop. Abstract: Isogeny-based cryptography is one of a few candidates for post-quantum cryptography. The computational problems relevant for isogeny-based cryptography are usually stated in terms of computing isogenies between elliptic curves, but they have other […]
