September 16-18, 2020: With the goal of bringing Quantum Computing curriculum effectively to University settings, the Northwest Quantum Nexus has assembled leading experts from academia and industry, as well as graduate students and postdocs, for 3 days of invited talks, panel discussions, poster sessions and hands-on activities. Register by September 12th.
A team led by materials science and engineering professor Peter Pauzauskie used an infrared laser to cool a solid semiconductor by at least 20 degrees C, or 36 F, below room temperature. Their findings were reported in a paper published June 23 in Nature Communications. Lasers that can cool materials could be adapted in the future by scientists from various fields to enhance the performance of quantum sensors.
Quantum computing is the key to solving problems regular computers can’t handle, like designing silver-bullet drugs for cancer or improving materials for data storage. QuantumX is bringing together quantum expertise across the UW campus to stimulate research and teaching on all things quantum.
April 27, 2020: Fedor Jelezko, Professor of physics and Director Institute for Quantum Optics, at Ulm University in Germany, will give a virtual seminar.
April 7, 2020: Sonia Buckley, a physicist at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, will give a virtual seminar on chip-scale quantum optics.
UW Professor Kai-Mei Fu, an experimental physics researcher and professor focusing on advanced quantum technologies, sat down with Dr. Krysta Svore, general manager of quantum systems and software at Microsoft, for the latest episode of Microsoft’s Quantum Impact series.
February 20-21, 2020: The Northwest Quantum Nexus (NQN) is bringing together experts for a workshop at Washington State University to discuss the state of quantum physics in the Pacific Northwest and beyond with a particular focus on the role of atomic systems in the future of quantum technology.
February 11, 2020: Nathan Wiebe, Assistant Professor of Physics from the University of Washington, will give a talk at the ECE colloquium.
January 28, 2020: Alexander Gaeta, Professor of Applied Physics from Columbia University, will present.
UW physicists Martin Savage and David Herzog co-authored a report to the Nuclear Science Advisory Committee that assesses the potential impact of quantum information science on nuclear physics and describes the unique contributions nuclear physics research could make to accelerate advances in quantum information science.
