Quantum memories for quantum computing applications

At: 
Heriot-Watt University
Deadline: 
7 January, 2011

We are investigating a range of systems in order to produce a robust quantum memory. For example, we recently showed how to store a quantum state in a nuclear spin for over three seconds [1], in a solid state system. We are now looking at ways of extending this coherence time, and at making the memory more versatile [2].

In this project, we aim to design improved quantum memories in both single spins and spin ensembles. There will be opportunities for collaboration with experimentalists both locally, and at the University of Oxford and Princeton.

Quantum dynamics and energy transfer in optically driven nanosystems

At: 
Heriot-Watt University
Deadline: 
31 December, 2010

This theoretical project is about the quantum properties of nanomaterials, which have atom-like discrete quantum energy levels. Examples of such systems include semiconductor quantum dots and molecular materials. We will be interested in how an optical driven field can create quantum coherence in these solid-state systems and how long this coherence can be maintained. We will go on to look at how energy can transfer between connected nano-materials and whether this influences the efficiency of the process.
