Welcome to CQuIC!


Please join us in welcoming Rafael Alexander  to CQuIC as a Postdoctoral Fellow.  Raf comes to us from the University of Sydney, where he recently completed his PhD under the supervision of Nicolas Menicucci and Stephen Bartlett.   Raf’s PhD research focused on exploring the requirements for fault-tolerant continuous-variable quantum computation; he spent the first part of 2017 as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Virginia working with Olivier Pfister on implementing CV quantum computation.   Raf started at CQuIC on August 15, 2017.  He is interested both in continuing his previous research work and in expanding his research skills and portfolio.   He is looking forward to experiencing the Balloon Fiesta for the first time and visiting Santa Fe and Ojo Caliente in northern New Mexico.


Submit your Abstract for the 20th Annual SQuInT Workshop

Abstracts to be considered for talks and/or posters in the scientific program may be submitted beginning on September 18, 2017 until November 22, 2017.

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!



CQuIC Advisory Board Meeting September 7-8, 2017

 Steve Girvin Christiane Koch David Wineland


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 F. Elohim Becerra Chavez visits Shanxi University

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.
