Sub-wavelength quantum imaging for astronomy

2023-02-02
Seminar Room B503 - Ctr Bldg

Can quantum mechanics help with the precise imaging of faint astronomical objects? In this talk Dr Huang will explain her recent research about a quantum protocol for distributed quantum sensing with applications to telescope arrays.

Optomechanics with levitated liquid Helium

2023-01-20
Meeting Room L4F23 L4 Bldg

Optomechanics is the science that describes the interaction of light with moving objects. It has developed rapidly over the past ten years and has many applications in developing novel high precision sensors such as LIGO. Dr Harris will describe research which uses magnetically levitated liquid Helium to perform optomechanical experiments.

Whispering Gallery Mode (WGM) microresonators for sensing applications - Dr V Kavungal from the LMI-QT Unit

2023-01-13
A719 - Bottom of Lab 3

Optical sensors can play a role in many technologies ranging from biosensing through to magnetic field sensing. This talk will give some overview on how one can use whispering gallery optical resonators for sensing.

Fast imaging of individual impurities in an atomic gas - Dr Jinjin Du

2023-01-06
A719 - Bottom of Lab 3

The imaging of individual atoms in a atomic cloud or gas is a challenging task. In this talk we will discuss how to experimentally achieve this using techniques from quantum optics and in particular using Electromagnetically Induced Transparency

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

2022-07-09
Okinawa City Public Entertainments Mansion Hall, Cultural Center Floor 4

This 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!
