Algorithmic simulation of far-from-equilibrium dynamics using superconducting quantum computer

Walter Pogosov, Head of the Laboratory of Physics of Micro- and Nanostructures Dukhov Research Institute of Automatics (Rosatom State Corporation) 06 June 2018, 15:00-16:30 Skoltech, TPOC-4, Nobel str. 1, Red Building, 3rd floor, Room 351 Abstract. We point out that superconducting quantum computers are prospective for the simulation of the dynamics of spin models far from equilibrium, including nonadiabatic phenomena and quenches. The important advantage of these machines is that they are programmable, so that different spin models can be simulated in the same chip, as well as various initial states can be encoded into it in a controllable way. This opens an opportunity to use superconducting quantum computers in studies[…]

Research Scientist (multiple levels and topics)

Deep Quantum Labs is in the ongoing process of a expansion planned over the next several years as we continue to establish resident based international leadership in several core areas of theory related to quantum simulation, quantum enhanced machine learning and the simulation of quantum systems using classical computers. We are seeking a Research Scientist(s) to join our lab (Level I, II or III depending on experience).  We offer internationally competitive compensation, including a housing allowance (international applicants), medical insurance and a sign-on bonus to cover moving expenses. Duties primarily include furthering the competitive research agenda of Deep Quantum Labs and assisting in the advising and day-to-day training of our[…]

Schrödinger cats for a ‘quantum internet’ – Alex Lvovsky

Professor Alexander Lvovsky, Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Calgary Group Lead, Quantum Optics Group, Russian Quantum Center Blue Building 303 (Multifunctional Zone)​, Skoltech Campus 29 May at 15:00     ABSTRACT: Superpositions of macroscopically distinct quantum states, introduced in Schrödinger’s famous Gedankenexperiment, are an epitome of quantum “strangeness” and a natural tool for determining the validity limits of quantum physics. The optical incarnation of Schrödinger’s cat – the superposition of two opposite-amplitude coherent states – is also the backbone of quantum information processing in the continuous-variable domain. The talk will cover recent experimental progress on preparing such states, applying them in quantum technology and communications, and increasing their[…]

PhD Fellowship in Quantum Optics (theory/experiment – Skoltech/MSU)

MSU’s Center for Quantum Technology has a long established track record in experimentally demonstrating optical quantum information processing.  The research is accelerating as the center assumes the leading role in a National Technology Initiative (NTI) Focused on Quantum Technologies. We are building a collaborative team working at the intersection of MSU’s quantum hardware focused Center for Quantum Technology and Skoltech’s quantum software focused, Deep Quantum Labs which are both members of the Consortium formed under the NTI Quantum Technologies Initiative. This is part of educational cooperation between the members of the NTI consortium. Students with interest in experimental quantum optics, theoretical quantum optics and quantum information and/or the intersection of these[…]

Quantum Techniques in Stochastic Mechanics – Book Published

Our book is now available through World Scientific Publishing. A preprint of the book remains open access on the arXiv and here. The book was published as Quantum Techniques in Stochastic Mechanics John C. Baez and Jacob D. Biamonte World Scientific Publishing, 276 pages (2018) [link to get the book from WS] The book constructs a detailed analogy between quantum mechanics and the theory of random processes. We called the latter stochastic mechanics. The book should be of interest to graduate students and advanced undergraduates who are leaning quantum theory.  It should also be of interest to reachers working in statistical physics and complex network theory who are interested in using[…]
