Physics Lectures for the General MIT Community:

5MITQuantum Information-Computation at the Atomic Scale

Prof. Isaac Chuang
Fri Jan 23, 01:30-02:30pm, 6-120

No enrollment limit, no advance sign up
Participants requested to attend all sessions (non-series)

Information is physical, and computation obeys physical laws. Ones and zeros must be represented in physical media to be stored and processed. Increasingly, as we edge towards the limits of semiconductor technology, we reach a new regime where classical physics gives way to quantum, and phenomena like entanglement and quantum coherence become available as new resources. How can such resources be utilized for information technology, and with what physical systems? Part of the Physics Lectures for the General MIT Community series.
