King Willem-Alexander and President Macron went on a quantum tour of the UvA
On Wednesday morning, 12 April 2023, King Willem-Alexander and President Macron visited the UvA’s Faculty of Science. Prof. Florian Schreck and Prof. Philippe Bouyer showed the King and the French president around the UvA’s Quantum Gases & Quantum Information Lab and talked about the promising possibilities of quantum technology. This was followed by a round […]
How to overcome noise in quantum computations
Researchers Ludovico Lami (QuSoft, University of Amsterdam) and Mark M. Wilde (Cornell) have made significant progress in quantum computing by deriving a formula that predicts the effects of environmental noise. This is crucial for designing and building quantum computers capable of working in our imperfect world.
Stieltjesprijs 2021-2022 for Freek Witteveen: how to understand physical systems in the language of quantum information theory?
Freek Witteveen, who did his PhD research at QuSoft, has been awarded the Stieltjesprijs for the academic year 2021-2022. In his work he has contributed to the understanding of how to use quantum information theory to better describe many-body physics.
PhD defense of Subhasree Patro on 16th February 2023. How useful are Quantum Computers?
In the quest for obtaining a working quantum computer, it is interesting and important to find out how classical and quantum computer perform similar tasks and if quantum computers are better.
Quantum clocks in the real world
Modern atomic quantum clocks are the most precise and accurate scientific instruments ever created. Currently, these so-called optical atomic clocks are mostly found in physics laboratories, often filling an entire laboratory. The AQuRA-consortium brings together European universities, industry partners and EU metrology institutes in an effort to make quantum clocks more robust and compact. This […]
QuSoft talks at QIP 2023
The international conference on Quantum Information Processing (QIP) is the premier annual meeting for quantum information research. Since the first meeting in Aarhus (Denmark) in 1998, the conference has featured breakthroughs by leaders in the disciplines of computing, cryptography, information theory, mathematics, and physics. The scientific objective of the series is to gather the theoretical […]
Quantuminformatie is als een droom: je kunt er geen perfecte kopie van maken
Door: Dorine Schenk, Bron: NRC De ‘https’ voor een website-url is een protocol dat zorgt voor een versleutelde verbinding tussen jou en die website, zodat niemand kan meekijken als je je adres invult bij een webshop. Nu is dat veilig. „Maar alles wat beveiligd is met https-techniek kan gebroken worden met een quantumcomputer”, vertelt informaticus […]
QuSoft celebrates ‘founding fathers’ of Quantum Information: Peter Shor, David Deutsch, Gilles Brassard & Charles Bennett
Last Friday, November 11, 2022, the celebrated quantum information scientists and longtime collaborators Charlie Bennet and Gilles Brassard joined us for a special edition of the Qusoft seminar in celebration of them being awarded the Breakthrough prize in Physics, together with Peter Shor and David Deutsch. Showing themselves as masters of their craft, both Gilles […]
