On the 01 of February 2023, as part of the Photonics Seminar Series, we will have the pleasure to have Dr. Stanislav Straupe discuss “Quantum computing with photons“. He will present photonic approach to quantum computing focusing on implementations using linear optics. The event will be hosted in person at the New Campus and on-line on BigBlueButton.
When: On the 01 of February 2023, Wednesday, at 17:00 MSK time
Where: New Campus room E-B2-3007/ BigBlueButton
Dr. Stanislav Straupe received his PhD in physics from Faculty of Physics of Lomonosov MSU in 2011, specializing in quantum state engineering with non-classical light. He was a postdoctoral researcher in CQT, Singapore (2011-2012) working on cavity QED with single trapped atoms. At present Dr. Straupe is an associate professor at MSU and a principal investigator at the Russian quantum center. Dr. Straupe’s research interests are in quantum optics and quantum computing with photons and cold trapped atoms.
We will discuss a photonic approach to quantum computing focusing on implementations using linear optics. The principle is known for more than 20 years but only recently the proposals which can be realistically implemented with current technologies have started to emerge. We will outline possible approaches based on discrete variables and dual-rail encoded qubits and discuss the technological limitations the community is now facing in terms of photon sources, detectors and integrated optical circuits.
