Physics Colloquium: Bosonic Quantum Information Processing

When: Monday, April 10, 2023 at 4:00pm
Where: Physics & Astronomy Auditorium A-102

Abstract: Bosonic modes are widely used for quantum communication and information processing. Recent developments in superconducting circuits enable us to control bosonic microwave cavity modes and implement arbitrary operations allowed by quantum mechanics, such as quantum error correction against excitation loss errors. I will discuss different bosonic encoding and error correction protocols and provide a perspective on using quantum error correction for various applications, including quantum computing, communication, simulation, and sensing
