Quantum Computation

International Conference on Quantum Information and Computation

2010-10-04 - 2010-10-08
Stockholm, Sweden

The scientific program on Quantum Information is primarily focusing on physical and theoretical aspects of quantum information processing and communication, as well as on their physical implementation. The aim of the program is to bring together key and active researchers in the foundations of quantum mechanics, quantum information theory, quantum communication, quantum key distribution, and quantum computing to review, present and discuss recent important results.

Geometric phases, pumping, and dissipation in quantum devices
SHNIRMAN, Alexander
Running time: 
2009-09-01 - 2012-08-31

The aim of this project is to investigate how dissipation influences the geometric phases and geometric pumping in quantum solid-state devices and to assess the role of geometric manipulations in future ICT applications. Since all realistic solid-state devices suffer from dissipation due to their coupling to uncontrolled environment with many degrees of freedom it is crucial to understand how the geometric effects are modified and whether they are still useful.


Full Name: 
Correlated noise effects in quantum information processing
Running time: 
2008-07-01 - 2011-06-30

CORNER aims to develop a general framework for understanding and managing noise effects in quantum information technology with particular attention paid to the previously unexplored area of correlated noise errors that commonly arise in space and/or time especially in large scale operations.


Full Name: 
Collective quantum operations for information technologies
PALERMO, Roberto
Running time: 
2009-05-01 - 2012-04-30

COQUIT aims at designing quantum algorithms that can be implemented in terms of operations that are easily feasible on many particle quantum states and to investigate quantum devices with limited control. Instead of improving the corresponding experimental methods, CQOUIT aims at a systematic study of the tasks which can be performed with currently available techniques.


Full Name: 
Computing with Mesoscopic Photonic and Atomic States
CERF, Nicolas
Running time: 
2008-04-01 - 2011-03-31

COMPAS aims at carrying out exploratory research on mesoscopic continuous variable quantum information systems, with the ultimate objective of designing the first small scale quantum processor using this continuous variable toolbox.


Full Name: 
Atomic QUantum TEchnologies
Tommaso Calarco
Running time: 
2010-02-01 - 2013-04-30
The Atomic QUantum TEchnologies (AQUTE) Integrating Project aims at
  1. Developing quantum technologies based on atomic, molecular and optical (AMO) systems both for scalable quantum computation as well as entanglement-enabled technologies (like metrology and sensing)

D-Wave Systems

D-Wave was spun out of the University of British Columbia (UBC) in 1999 to commercialize superconductor-based, quantum computer processors.

D-Wave is pioneering the development of a new class of high-performance computing system designed to solve complex search and optimization problems, with an initial emphasis on synthetic intelligence and machine learning applications.
