Quantum Computers and Raising Schrödinger’s Cat

Friday September 8, 2017
3:00 pm

 Presenter:  David Wineland, NIST, UCO
 Series:  Physics and Astronomy Colloquium
 Abstract:  Research on precise control of coherent quantum systems occurs in many laboratories throughout the world, for fundamental research, new measurement techniques, and more recently for the development of quantum computers. I will briefly describe experiments on these topics using trapped ions at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) but these just serve as examples of similar work being performed with many other atomic, molecular, optical (AMO) and condensed matter systems. This talk is, in part, the “story” of my involvement in these subjects which began when I entered graduate school.
