9th Optoelectronics and Photonics Winter School: IQP – Integrated Quantum Photonics

Date: 
2017-03-26 - 2017-04-01
Registration deadline: 
2017-02-28 (All day)
Place: 
Folgaria (Trento), Italy

The Optoelectronics and Photonics Winter Schools are biannual meetings which address relevant arguments of Optoelectronics and Photonics. The School has the tradition to bring together a large number of PhD students and young researchers from all parts of the world who, in a one-week of an intense program, follow a series of lectures on selected topics. The lectures are held by internationally recognized experts in the field. At the same time, the students are encouraged to enjoy the beautiful location where the school is organized.

China's new satellite would create the world's largest quantum network

Expert group on Quantum Technology Flagship

Summary: 

Following the nomination of the chair, Prof. Mlynek, the Commission has now formally set-up the Commission Expert Group, with 13 very high level academic members, that will provide recommendations on the preparation of the Quantum Technology Flagship.

The Commission Expert Group on Quantum Technologies - High Level Steering Committee has now been established as a high level expert group with a mandate of one year. Its members will best represent collectively the diversity of stakeholders in Europe, both from the academic as from the industrial sides.

The group will be composed of the following academic members:

Continuous matrix product state tomography of quantum transport experiments

Date: 
2016-06-20
Author(s): 

G. Haack, A. Steffens, J. Eisert, R. Hübener

Reference: 

New J. Phys. 17, 113024 (2015)

In recent years, a close connection between the description of open quantum systems, the input-output formalism of quantum optics, and continuous matrix product states in quantum field theory has been established. So far, however, this connection has not been extended to the condensed-matter context.

Diagnosing Topological Edge States via Entanglement Monogamy

Date: 
2016-06-20
Author(s): 

K. Meichanetzidis, J. Eisert, M. Cirio, V. Lahtinen, and J. K. Pachos

Reference: 

Phys. Rev. Lett. 116, 130501 (2016); arXiv:1511.04459

Topological phases of matter possess intricate correlation patterns typically probed by entanglement entropies or entanglement spectra. In this Letter, we propose an alternative approach to assessing topologically induced edge states in free and interacting fermionic systems. We do so by focussing on the fermionic covariance matrix.

Dear colleagues and friends,

We would like to bring your attention to a joint school and workshop on "Quantum simulation and many-body physics with light", to be held in Chania, Crete, Greece, June 5-12, 2016.

The website of the meeting is up at: http://qlightcrete2016.org/.

We would greatly appreciate it if you could bring this to the attention of your groups and to anyone else that might be interested. Pre-registration and abstract submission opens soon.

On behalf of the organizers, Dimitris G. Angelakis
