Atomically identical donor spin qubits in silicon offer excellent native
quantum properties, which match or outperform many qubit rivals. To scale up
such systems it would be advantageous to connect silicon donor spin qubits
in a cavity-QED architecture. Many proposals in this direction introduce
strong electric dipole interactions to the otherwise largely isolated spin
qubit ground state in order to couple to superconducting cavities. Here I
present an alternative approach, which uses the built-in strong electric

Quantum networks rely heavily on combining different quantum systems
like light sources and quantum memories. These may be composed of very
much incompatible systems like quantum dots, atoms and parametric
down-conversion as well as fiber-based resources. Non-linear processes
such as sum-frequency and difference-frequency generation are a powerful
toolbox to bridge the gap between those systems: They enable us to do
frequency conversion, bandwidth compression and spectral reshaping.

Characterizing and engineering photonic quantum sources

University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Quantum computing and quantum communication applications often require the carriers of information, or qubits, to have specific properties. Photonic quantum states are good information carriers because they travel fast and are robust to environmental fluctuations, but characterizing and engineering photons to have just the right properties is still a challenge. I will present our demonstration of a stimulated-emission-based technique for measuring correlations of photon-pair states.

Tragic loss of two UO Physics PhDs

Former UO Physics graduate students Shannon O’Leary (2008 PhD, Hailin Wang advisor) and Adam Clausen (2007 PhD, Jim Isenberg advisor) were killed in an automobile accident on Dec 26. Their 4 year old son Felix survived the crash.
