Advances in quantum information and quantum simulation
Organized by the CNRS research networks on "Quantum information, foundations and applications" and "Cold atoms", this conference will present the recent developments in quantum technologies for quantum information, quantum simulations and quantum metrology. A special enmphasis will be put on recent progresses in quantum simulation based on cold atom systems although the conference will also review photonic and solid-state based systems.
By gathering the quantum information and cold atoms communities, this conference will enable participants to exchange on state of the art developments in the vast and active filed of quantum state manipulation.
The conference is organized around four communication types:
One-hour pedagogical tutorials based on internationally recognized experts which will present a synthetic focus on specific topics in the field
Invited talks (25') presenting recent advances in the field. Ten contributions will be upgraded by the scientific commitée from poster to oral presentations.
Poster sessions enabling a large number of participants to present their results to the quantum information and cold atom communities.
A broad audience colloquium on "Ultra-cold gases: a quantum world at the interface between atomic and condensed matter physics" delivered by Jean Dalibard (Collège de France) will present a synthetic view of recent advances and perspectives opened by cold atom systems.
Pr. Dr. Gerd Leuchs (Max Planck Institute, Erlangen): Using the Wigner function to calculate expectation values
Pr. G. Fève (LPA, ENS Paris): Electron quantum optics in ballistic conductors
Pr. Dr. Klaus Sengstock (Hamburg University): Magnetism without magnetism: Physics with ultracold quantum gases
Pr. Dr. Dieter Meschede (Bonn University): Quantum walks with neutral atoms.
Dr. John Morton (University College London): Electron and nuclear spin qubits using donors in silicon.
