QIRG: Quantum Internet Research Group

Summary: 

The IRTF conducts work in what are known as Research Groups. Its goal is to bring the best networking research to the attention of the IETF so that it can be incorporated into Internet design and operation. The IRTF, has created a Quantum Internet Research Group.

1,200 people are gathered in London right now for the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF, ietf.org) meeting that happens thrice a year. IETF's sister organization, the Internet Research Task Force (IRTF, irtf.org) generally meets with them. IRTF conducts work both in person and online, via mailing lists, in what are known as Research Groups. IRTF is *pre-standardization*; any RFCs (Request for Comments documents in formal form) are either Experimental or Informational.

ZEISS Symposium "Optics in the Quantum World"

Date: 
2018-04-18
Place: 
Oberkochen, Germany

Quantum effects are in use since the 20th century and have led to market shaping innovations like semiconductor electronics and lasers. In the 21st century, quantum technology developments focus on the controlled quantum state of individual or coupled systems. While this quantum technology is still in the research stage, it offers an enormous potential and a number of initiatives worldwide have been formed to foster the technology and its commercial potential.

Full Name: 
Superconducting quantum heat engines and refrigerators
Coordinator: 
Jukka Pekola
Running time: 
2017-10-01 - 2022-09-30

The aim of the proposed work is to realize experimentally the first genuinely quantum mechanical refrigerator/heat engine in the solid state, and test whether one can boost its performance by information/feedback, optimized control, and merely by exploiting the quantum coherences vs the classical dynamics. To achieve this goal, we will investigate experimentally and theoretically the thermodynamics of open quantum systems.
