### [Public Talk] Quantum Computers: How fantastic will they really be?

2022-07-09This fun and informative public lecture (English and Japanese), will give some insights to the public and high-school students, about the potential wonderous power of a Quantum Computer - what it might be capable of and what it might not be capable of. We will have a live demo of a Quantum Computer!

### [Seminars] Macroscopic Quantum Machines

2022-04-07These seminars examine the science of how to bring macroscopic (large) systems into the quantum regime. The preparation of large Schrodinger cats is one of the long sought goals of quantum science. Researchers seek to do this for many reasons – to see if it can be done at all – does quantum mechanics still hold for large objects – is there new science that appears when objects become large/massive? Can macroscopic/large quantum systems be useful as precision sensors – and how can we preserve/protect the large scale quantum properties in such systems. These series of talks (experimental and theoretical), will show some facets/aspects of how some researchers are aiming towards the building of large Quantum Cats.

Coffee and Okinawan Donuts are supplied during the morning.
