3rd International Summer School of the SFB/TRR21, Blaubeuren, 3-5.10.2010

Summary: 

University of Ulm is a coorganizer of the 3rd International Summer School of the SFB/TRR21 "Control of Quantum Correlations in Tailored Matter", Heinrich-Fabri-Haus, Blaubeuren, October 3rd-5th 2010. 

The SFB TRR21 located in Stuttgart, Ulm and Tübingen, invites all interested parties to attend its 3rd annual summer school in Heinrich-Fabri-Haus, Blaubeuren, October 3rd-5th 2010. The topics this year are "quantum effects in biology", "quantum tomography and sensing" and "hybrid quantum systems". Please contact Michael Hellwig (Michael [dot] Hellwig [at] uni-ulm [dot] de) for further information.

Quantiki Video Abstracts

Summary: 

QVA - brief video abstracts to recent papers on the arXiv.

The purpose of Quantiki Video Abstracts is to provide brief video abstracts to recent papers on the arXiv. The abstracts provide a "teaser" for the paper and should guide the audience into your work, emphasizing what you think is the most important result. Everybody is welcome to contribute.

FP6 and FP7 QIP Open Day

Date:

Unitary circuits for strongly correlated fermions

We introduce a scheme for efficiently describing pure states of strongly correlated fermions in higher dimensions using unitary circuits featuring a causal cone. A local way of computing local expectation values is presented. We formulate a dynamical reordering scheme, corresponding to time-adaptive Jordan-Wigner transformation, that avoids nonlocal string operators. Primitives of such a reordering scheme are highlighted. Fermionic unitary circuits can be contracted with the same complexity as in the spin case.

International Symposium on Optical Manipulation of Quantum Information in Solids

Date: 
2010-05-26 - 2010-05-28
Place: 
Paris, Institut Henri Poincaré

Organised by some of the QuReP partners, this workshop will gather around 50 to 70 scientists from various countries working in the field of coherent and quantum optical processes in solids. It will also pay a tribute to the memories of two researchers, well-known in the community, who disappeared in an air crash last year. The conference is in the direct continuation of SMQIOAS 2008 in Bozeman, Montana and of a series of European workshops organized for several years on quantum information in rare earth doped crystals.
