  • Global – 8th September 2021. The world's first, and largest event bringing together major industry, research institutions, government agencies, and investors whose primary goal is to drive forward the commercialization of and deployment of Quantum AI and ML technologies. Driving forward the new quantum paradigm and commercialisation of Quantum AI and ML The world's first, and largest event bringing together major industry, research institutions, government agencies, and investors whose primary goal is to drive forward the commercialization of and deployment of Quantum AI and ML technologies. Over the last few years, the explosion in computing power, coupled with geopolitical competition, […]
  • 28 Nov – 01 Dec 2021 Where: Physikzentrum Bad Honnef Scientific organizers: Prof. Marzena Szymanska, U College London, UK – Prof. Jacqueline Bloch, CNRS, France – Dr. Paulo Santos, PDI Berlin This seminar has been postponed from June 2020 to November 2021 due to the corona pandemic. Quantum simulation, the use of a controllable quantum system to mimic the operation of other, more complex quantum systems, provides a pathway for solving quantum problems with a complexity level not accessible by classical computers. This quantum technology is presently classified as a leading approach to solve complex many-body problems with potential applications […]
  • Particle physicists have developed numerous classical algorithms to process data from high-energy particle collisions. Computational efficiency is an important criteria for selecting collider data analysis strategies, which is often weighed more heavily than physics performance. Could quantum algorithms change the kinds of analysis tools we use for collider physics? Could quantum principles like superposition and unitary inspire new kinds of classical algorithms? Drawing on examples from the study of jets from quantum chromodynamics, I explain some of the conceptual challenges for developing quantum algorithms for collider physics and some of the quantum-inspired advances that have already found applications.
  • 756. WE-Heraeus-Seminar 01 Nov – 05 Nov 2021 Where: Physikzentrum Bad Honnef Scientific organizers: Dr. Robert Drost, Max-Planck-Institut f r Festk?rperforschung, Stuttgart – Dr. Christian Lotze, Freie Universit?t Berlin – Dr. Anna Ros?awska, CNRS Strasbourg, France Since their invention in the 1980s, scanning probe microscopy (SPM) methods have become a vital tool for atomic-scale imaging. Remarkably, these techniques, most prominently scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) and atomic force microscopy (AFM), have evolved far beyond the concept of pure imaging devices and nowadays feature a full physico-chemical lab at the nanoscale. The ability to control single atoms or molecules, probe forces between […]
  • 734. WE-Heraeus-Seminar 24 Oct – 28 Oct 2021 Where: Physikzentrum Bad Honnef Scientific organizers: Prof. Dr. Stefan Tautz, FZ J lich – Prof. Dr. Peter Puschnig, U Graz, Austria – Prof. Dr. Mathias Richter, PTB Berlin This seminar has been postponed from December 2020 to October 2021 due to the corona pandemic. Angle-resolved ultraviolet photoemission spectroscopy is arguably the most direct method of addressing the (filled) electronic structure critical for the electronic and optical properties of matter. The photoemission tomography technique, a combined experimental/theoretical approach based on interpretation of the photoelectron angular distribution in terms of a one-electron initial state, […]

  • Quantum Communications Networks Approved 3/200 Speaker: Dr. Siddarth Joshi, Bristol University Quantum communications relies on a seemingly magical principle of entanglement of two distant particles. At Bristol University, Dr. Joshi's team have created a quantum network of eight receiver boxes at an extremely low cost. The system then uses Quantum Key Distribution which ensures that communications using the system are free from cyber attacks. Dr. Joshi will outline the design of the network and the way quantum physics technology has been developed. As the system is developed there could be the promise of secure global networks being implemented at an […]
  • We will explore U(1) lattice gauge theories with topological terms in D=1,2 and 3 spatial dimensions. For D=1, we scrutinize mass perturbation theory at small positive and negative fermion masses, with the latter case being inaccessible for MCMC. In D=2 we provide a resource efficient formulation of the Hamiltonian which can be used for both, tensor networks and quantum computations, and which works for all values of the coupling. In addition, it can be generalized to non-abelian groups and higher dimensions in a straightforward fashion. In our practical example in D=2 we use this formulation to simulate negative fermions masses […]
  • 754. WE-Heraeus-Seminar 26 Sep – 29 Sep 2021 Where: Physikzentrum Bad Honnef Scientific organizers: Dr. Sven Ramelow, HU Berlin – PD Dr. Frank K hnemann, Fraunhofer IPM, Freiburg In the last two decades, the ability to prepare and manipulate quantum states at the individual level has led to a wide range of scientific activities. It is expected that the laws of quantum mechanics with phenomena such as quantum entanglement and quantum superposition will revolutionize a wide range of fields, now frequently coined the so-called 'second generation' quantum technologies. The area of quantum sensing is considered to be one which most […]
