Atomic Physics Seminar
Achieving Practical Computations on Quantum Computers: From Better Qubits to Better Algorithms
Time: 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Place: 5310 Chamberlin Hall
Speaker: Matthew Otten , Hughes Research Laboratories
Abstract: Quantum information science holds the potential to revolutionize computation, communication, and sensing. Despite recent progress, significant challenges remain to make quantum technology practical and scalable. In this talk, I will highlight my research on simulating open quantum systems, benchmarking quantum devices, and developing efficient quantum algorithms. I will also discuss the physics of different qubits, methods for characterizing and verifying them, and quantum algorithms for chemistry. Finally, I will outline my plans to tackle the remaining challenges and bring practical quantum computing closer to reality.
