The 20th Annual SQuInT Workshop will take place at the historic La Fonda on the Plaza hotel in Santa Fe, NM, February 22 – 24, 2018. We plan to have special events to celebrate the 20th anniversary. We hope to see many SQuInT network researchers at the Workshop!
The CQuIC Advisory Board will hold its first meeting in Albuquerque on September 7 and 8, 2017. During the day and a half of meetings, Steven Girvin of Yale University, Christiane Koch of the University of Kassel, and David Wineland, who has just joined the University of Oregon, will learn about what’s happening at CQuIC and advise us on our programs and research in quantum information science.
Professor Elohim Becerra visited his collaborator, Professor Yanting Zhao, and co-workers at the Institute of Laser Spectroscopy at Shanxi University in Taiyuan, China, in July, 2017. Their collaboration involves the study of nonlinear optical processes in cold atomic ensembles and quantum-optical effects from the interaction of light and matter. During his visit, Professor Becerra gave a seminar at the State Key Laboratory of Quantum Optics and Quantum Optics Devices, presenting results on quantum measurements from his research at CQuIC.
CQuIC is sponsoring a series of Computing Workshops to help train the next generation of scientists in modern computing methods and tools. Three sessions, scheduled for 1:30 pm on May 19, May 29, and June 1, will cover topics such as data visualization, version control, automation, and computer algebra. A big thanks to Jonathan Gross, Anumpam Mitra, Xiaodong Qi, and Travis Scholten for organizing the Workshops and providing instruction. The Workshops will be held in Room 4 of Physics and Astronomy; each is expected to take about five hours. The material to be covered is based loosely on that available from Software Carpentry.
