Room T201, Kedleston Road Campus, Derby University, Derby DE22 1GB

Speakers: Eric R. Johnson

The past few years have seen increasingly rapid global advances in the development of quantum logic devices. As projects become more sophisticated, so does the opportunity for exploration of innovative applications. This talk will cover some core fundamentals of quantum computation in an approachable manner (no familiarity with quantum mechanics is required), and then explore recent developments and challenges in building operational quantum logic devices in the lab. Some new devices from the University of Bristol Centre for Quantum Photonics will be highlighted, including a reprogrammable quantum photonic chip and a portable device the size of a credit card.

Eric R. Johnston is a postdoctoral researcher in Quantum Engineering at the University of Bristol Centre for Quantum Photonics. His background is in electrical engineering and computer science, with a 28-year career in machine-level software optimisation, on projects ranging from neuroscience to video games.
