Wednesday 3 Febuary; Delft, Jake Taylor "Hybrid quantum systems"




Room: Zaal E

I am happy to give a talk for the nanoscience seminar. Here is a title and abstract:

Title: "Hybrid quantum systems"

J. M. Taylor (JQI/NIST)

Controlling and understanding the coupling between different objects lies at the heart of modern quantum mechanics. Limits in our ability to couple and decouple certain object, such as spins in solid-state devices, inevitably translate into fundamental constraints for application of these systems to quantum information science and metrology. However, one can conceive a scenario in which different, disparate objects--hybrid systems--can be used together to overcome these limitations. I will discuss some approaches to building hybrid devices using ideas from circuit QED with superconductors, and some potential applications in quantum information and magnetic microscopy.
