FOMO2018 Summer School of the Conference Frontiers of MatterWave Optics

Date: 
2018-09-10 - 2018-09-14
Registration deadline: 
2018-07-01 (All day)
Place: 
Crete, Greece

Scope of the Summer School

The summer school aims at providing a strong background in matter-wave physics to those starting in the field, be it PhD students or early stage post-docs. The school will consist of a series of in-depth lectures by leading experimentalists and theorists in the field. The summer school is to some extent a preparation to the conference, which follows the week after.

The summer school will take place in the village of Archanes, close to Heraklion on Crete (Greece).  

High Level Steering Committee Final Report published

Summary: 

The final report of the High Level Steering Committee for Quantum Technologies has been published.

On the 18th of September the final report of the High Level Steering Committee on Quantum Technologies has been published. This documents complete the intermidiate report which was published in February. The final report expands the section dedicated on the implementation and include a proposal for the governance structure of the QT flagship.

A Coherent Quantum Annealer with Rydberg Atoms

There is a significant ongoing effort in realizing quantum annealing with different physical platforms. The challenge is to achieve a fully programmable quantum device featuring coherent adiabatic quantum dynamics. Here we show that combining the well-developed quantum simulation toolbox for Rydberg atoms with the recently proposed Lechner-Hauke-Zoller~(LHZ) architecture allows one to build a prototype for a coherent adiabatic quantum computer with all-to-all Ising interactions and, therefore, a novel platform for quantum annealing.

Optimal control of Rydberg lattice gases

We present optimal control protocols to prepare different many-body quantum states of Rydberg atoms in optical lattices. Specifically, we show how to prepare highly ordered many-body ground states, GHZ states as well as some superposition of symmetric excitation number Fock states, that inherit the translational symmetry from the Hamiltonian, within sufficiently short excitation times minimizing detrimental decoherence effects.
