Detecting Memory Effects in QIP Architectures

Date:

University of Oregon

We present a method to test for temporal correlations between quantum gates.  Our protocol can also detect strong memory effects, i.e.,  non-Markovianity. Moreover, our method is insensitive to state preparation and measurement errors (SPAM).

Beam shaping: from light optics to electron wavefunctions

Date: 
October 16, 2015 -
3:00pm to 4:00pm
Speaker: 
Roy Shiloh
Speaker's Institution: 
Tel-Aviv University

 In light optics, beam shaping is done in a multitude of techniques and approaches: whether it be using refractive or diffractive elements, whether the underlying is based on plasmonics, linear optics, photonic crystals - the possibilities seem endless. In the exciting field of nonlinear optics, for example, one could make use of a ferroelectric crystal to transfer energy from an impinging laser light to its spectral harmonics.
