Condensed Matter Theory Center
Fall 2010 Symposium
November 2-4, 2010 2205 Physics Building
Looks like a good one from Stephen Johnson: Where Good Ideas Come From: The Natural History of Innovation. Just ordered it. Johnson–writer, Web guru, and bestselling author of Everything Bad Is Good for You–delivers a sweeping look at innovation spanning nearly the whole of human history. What sparks our great ideas? Johnson breaks down the […]
Rusko Ruskov discusses “Single-spin state monitoring by measurement of three complementary observables” on 10/22/2010 at 11 am at LPS.
Daniel Lidar discusses “Combining dynamical decoupling with fault-tolerant quantum computation” on 10/18/2010 at 10 am at LPS.
Wayne Witzel discusses “Coherence of Donor Electron Spins in Isotopically Enriched Silicon” on 10/13/2010 at 3:30 pm at LPS.
The spin of an electron in silicon may act as an information carrier in future information technologies, from quantum computers to spintronics. For quantum information applications, the spin of cold localized electrons in silicon can make a good quantum memory due to the purifiability of the spin environment (a spin-0 nuclear isotope is available) and […]
