Theory seminar: Quantum engeneering
Kjetil Børkje, UiOOver the past few decades, tremendous experimental progress has been made to engineer and control artificial quantum systems. The motivation for this type of research will be discussed, both from a fundamental and a technological point of view. Some of the most important recent developments will be presented, with focus on two areas specifically: a) the quest to realize quantum information processing and b) the effort to bring large-scale mechanical systems into the quantum regime. A few examples from my own theoretical contributions to the field of cavity optomechanics will be discussed. Finally, I will try to identify some new challenges going forward.
Note the time!
