Workshop overview

Quantum computation uses quantum mechanical phenomena to perform operations on data measured by qubits. It is part of quantuminformation processing, which has the potential to revolutionize our methods of securing, processing, storing, retrieving, transmitting anddisplaying information. A quantum computer can implement new algorithms, to perform e.g. rapid integer factorization, therebythreatening current cryptosystems, and quicker database searches. Practical difficulties have limited us to seven qubitcomputers so far, but the possibilities of this emerging technology have led to many centers, learned and popular articles, and even themovie "Timeline". In this workshop, three experts in the theoretical, experimental, and engineering aspects of quantum computation will takeus from basics to cutting-edge.

Remark: This workshop was held on February 10, 2005 as part of the Computational Sciences Lecture Series (CSLS) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Quantum information, computation, and communication

By Prof. Richard Cleve (University of Waterloo, Canada)

(Slides are not available) | Video [WMV]

ABSTRACT: A quantum computer is an information processing device that harnesses the strange power of quantum mechanics: it can exist inseveral states simultaneously and its computation paths can interfere with each other. Following a brief introduction to quantuminformation, the talk will review developments in quantum algorithms and various notions of communication with quantum information.

Prospects for real quantum information processing devices in the laboratory

By Dr. David DiVincenzo(IBM Watson Research Center, USA)

Slides of talk [PDF] | Video [WMV]

ABSTRACT: Some very hard things have to happen in the laboratory tomake even rudimentary quantum information processing a reality. I will give a report "from the trenches" to give some idea of how you startfrom scratch -- in a state of the art solid state physics lab -- and try to make a working qubit. I will also give a point of view onprogress on other fronts where things seem to be going better, in particular in the atomic physics lab.

The future of quantum information processing: how big, how fast, how powerful?

By Prof. Seth Lloyd (MIT, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA)

(Slides are not available) | Video [WMV]

ABSTRACT: Existing quantum computers and quantum communication systems operate at the fundamental performance limits posed by the laws ofphysics. This talk reviews the physical limits to quantum information processing, and explores the future of the field.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
Abhijith Reply
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
is Bucky paper clear?
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
how to fabricate graphene ink ?
for screen printed electrodes ?
What is lattice structure?
s. Reply
of graphene you mean?
or in general
in general
Graphene has a hexagonal structure
On having this app for quite a bit time, Haven't realised there's a chat room in it.

I start with an easy one. carbon nanotubes woven into a long filament like a string
many many of nanotubes
what is the k.e before it land
what is the function of carbon nanotubes?
I'm interested in nanotube

preparation of nanomaterial
Victor Reply
Yes, Nanotechnology has a very fast field of applications and their is always something new to do with it...
Himanshu Reply
good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
how did you get the value of 2000N.What calculations are needed to arrive at it
