Topical Research Meetings on Physics: Quantum technologies: taking concepts through to implementations

http://qtech.iopconfs.org/

17- 18 December 2012, Institute of Physics, London, UK

It is now recognised worldwide that new Quantum Technologies (QT), based on quantum rather than classical laws and underpinned by Quantum Information (QI) research, have real potential for commercial development and impact. QT have been recognised by EPSRC as a Grand Challenge and QI research has been identified as a UK strength, to be grown in the new EPSRC Portfolio.

The meeting will cover the whole range of new quantum technologies, from existing technologies through to the long term grand challenges, linking theory to experiment and concepts to implementations.

Topics:

  • Quantum communication
  • Memory and networking technologies
  • Quantum metrology and sensing technologies
  • Quantum simulation and computing technologies.

To encourage and facilitate the participation of early-career researchers and PhD students, short contributed talks and a poster session form key aspects of this meeting. Further key features are a summary session to address the technology vision, and discussion of funding opportunities and the routes to further investment.

Invited speakers include:

K Banaszek (University of Warsaw, Poland)
J Dowling (Louisiana State University, USA)
J Hwang (Imperial College London, UK)
A Kuhn (University of Oxford, UK)
L Molenkamp (University of Würzburg, Germany)
J G Rarity (University of Bristol, UK)
C F Roos (Univeristy of Innsbruck, Austria)
R Renner (ETH Zurich, Switzerland)
A Wallraff (ETH Zurich, Switzerland)
P Zoller (Univeristy of Innsbruck, Austria)

Scientific organisers:

Professor Timothy P Spiller (University of Leeds, UK)
Professor Ian Walmsley (University of Oxford, UK)
