Toward On-Chip Spin Magnetomechanics with Levitated Systems


Levitated quantum systems can be used to build ultra-precise sensors for use in technology but also to search for new fundamental types of forces and dark matter. In this seminar PhD student Trisha Madhavan from Mikhail Lukin's Nanomechanics subgroup at Harvard University will talk about her work on levitating tiny magnets and coupling them to NV defects in diamond.

Levitodynamics of optically active nanocrystals


Did you know that for some very special materials, when you shine light on them they will cool down? Optical refridgeration is not a very well known phenomena but it can cool materials down to temperatures below 100K! In this talk we will discuss the optical trapping of nanoparticles AND the bulk cooling of them using optical means.

Generation of entanglement from mechanical rotations

Lab 4 E01

Generation of entanglement from mechanical rotations. Is it possible to use the movement of massive objects to generate quantum entanglement? If this proves to be possible - what consequences would it have for our understanding regarding quantum mechanics and how it relates to space and time? Come to this talk by thoeretician Dr Toros, from Scotland - to hear how he proposes to do it and what might be the consequences!

Come chat with Serge…

Please join us for an informal discussion with Prof Serge Haroche…Serge was joint awardee of the 2012 Nobel Prize in Physics for “ground-breaking experimental methods that enable measuring and manipulation of individual quantum systems”!




Quantum networks based on diamond spin qubits - Prof T Taminiau [QUTech]


Prof Tim Taminiau from QuTech in Delft, Netherlands, is an experimentalists who studies the use of defects in diamond continaing electron and nuclear spins for quantum technology. In this talk he will  discuss recent progress in controlling such electron-nuclear spin systems for quantum networks and for distributed quantum computations and simulations.

[Seminar] Optical fiber Fabry-Perot cavities: Production and applications - Prof Takahasi, PI of the EQIP Unit

Seminar Room C209 - Ctr Bldg

Prof. Hiroki Takahashi, Assistant Professor of the Experimental Quantum Information Physics Unit

Dr Quijandria: Quantum error correction with dissipatively stabilized squeezed cat qubits

Meeting Room C016 Lab 1

Quantum computers can use many forms of quantum systems to encode and process quantum information. There has been a lot of interest recently on using modes of light to encode quantum information but this brings with it some questions about how to encode quantum information into an infinite dimensional Hilbert space which is robust against errors. This talk will show how this can be achieved.
