A spins-inside quantum processor



Prof. Lieven Vandersypen, Delft University of Technology
This colloquium will be held in Parnell (07) 234 at 1 pm on WEDNESDAY 20th May.

The wonderful promise of quantum computing is that the most profound and puzzling aspects of quantum mechanics, such as quantum entanglement and quantum measurement, can be used to solve relevant problems that are otherwise out of reach. More and more, this promise is becoming experimental reality, and the belief grows that large-scale quantum computers can be built. In this talk, I will show how nuclear and electron spins in real and artificial molecules are used to perform proof-of-concept demonstrations, and outline the major challenges ahead, along with directions to overcomes these challenges.
