SEMINAR Introduction to
Superconducting Circuit-based Quantum Computing
Speaker: Mr. UMAR TARIQ ALHUWAYMEL Date: Monday, 14 November 2022 Time: 11:00 a.m. Location: Bldg. 6/Room 125 Abstract: Due to the growing interest in quantum
computing and information, the field of quantum hardware development has
gained more attraction. As a result, various physical realisations of
quantum computing have been attempted by researchers all over the world.
This seminar will act as an introduction into the field of superconducting
circuit-based quantum computing. Furthermore, I will talk about my
superconducting coplanar waveguide resonator quality factor-related
simulation results. Bio: Umar Alhuwaymel is a
senior physics undergraduate student who is interested in quantum computing
and information. He underwent his summer training at NTIS, where he was
involved in designing coplanar waveguide resonators. He is currently
working with Dr. Saleem Rao on quantum computing-related projects.
Topological Insulator
Speaker: Mr. Miftah Hadi Syahputra Anfa Date: Monday, 14 November 2022 Time: 11:25 a.m. Location: Bldg. 6/Room 125 Abstract: An object is
said to be topologically invariant if it has certain properties that are
preserved under continuous transformation. One could then categorize
objects based on their topological invariants, for example, the number of
holes, etc. This concept was found to be useful to explain physical
phenomena such as the quantum Hall effect which then led us to discover a
certain interesting class of materials, called a topological insulator.
Topological insulators are materials with the surprising property that they
do not conduct current in the bulk but instead carry current along their
boundary. In this talk, the general idea of topological insulators will be
presented
All
faculty, researchers and students are invited to attend. |
