From Bits to Qubits: Quantum Information Processing using quantum optics

Clock icon
18:30 – 20:30 16 Nov 2011
Location icon
IOP, 76 Portland Place, London W1B 1NT

Speakers: Professor Sir Peter Knight

Consideration of how the quantum world allows information to be encoded and manipulated in ways quite different from classical physics forms part of the discourse.
Parallelism and entanglement enable us to undertake information processing tasks peculiar to the quantum world: secure encryption, quantum teleportation and algorithmic speedup. Knight will describe progress towards such quantum processors using quantum bits ("qubits”).
Tea and coffee will be available from 18:00, and after the lecture.
The London and South East Branch dinner follows this lecture with Professor Sir Peter Knight, President of the Institute of Physics (IOP) as the guest of honour.
