ESE Seminar: “Quantum information processing with superconducting circuits: Purcell effect and the measurement problem”

February 25 at 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Abstract With recent advances in state preparation, gate, and measurement operations, superconducting circuit architectures are now leading candidates for quantum information processing. As micro-fabricated circuits are scaled up towards a practical quantum processor, strict requirements on the fidelity of operations required for quantum computation are imposed. For theorists, this mandates the development of accurate models describing the dynamics of complex superconducting circuits subject to strong drives. This talk will begin with an elementary introduction to such systems and their description…

ESE Seminar: “Engineering Quantum Processors in Silicon”

February 27 at 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Room 337, Towne Building, 220 South 33rd Street
Philadelphia, PA 19104 United States

Abstract Across the globe, physicists in academia and industry alike are competing to be the first to build a scalable universal quantum computer. Amongst the multitudes of quantum computing architectures, solid-state quantum processors based on spins in silicon are emerging as a strong contender. Silicon is an ideal material to host spin qubits: it supports long coherence times , has excellent prospects for scaling, and is ubiquitous in the semiconductor industry. While semiconductor spin qubits were proposed over two decades…

ESE Seminar: “Safe Real-World Autonomy in Uncertain and Unstructured Environments”

March 3 at 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Room 337, Towne Building, 220 South 33rd Street

Abstract In this talk I will present my current and future work towards enabling safe real-world autonomy. My core focus is to enable efficient and safe decision-making in complex autonomous systems, while reasoning about uncertainty in real-world environments, including those involving human interactions. First I will discuss safety for complex systems in simple environments. Traditional methods for generating safety analyses and safe controllers struggle to handle realistic complex models of autonomous systems, and therefore are stuck with simplistic models that…

Abstract Millimeter-wave and terahertz bands are emerging as the most promising spectrum to meet the data-rate and latency demands of future wireless applications, including virtual reality and autonomous cars. Moreover, large spectral availability and mm-scale wavelength provide the possibility for ubiquitous and high-resolution sensing. My research builds a foundation for joint communication and sensing in such high-frequency regimes. This perspective yields a paradigm shift in the design and development of future wireless systems. In this talk, I will present the…

Abstract By enabling optical microsystems with new functionalities, improved system performance, and reduced size, weight, and power, integrated photonics is positioned to enable next-generation optical technologies that facilitate revolutionary advances for numerous fields spanning science and engineering, including computing, sensing, communications, displays, quantum, and biology. An emerging class of integrated photonic systems is integrated optical phased arrays, which enable manipulation and dynamic control of free-space light in a compact form factor, at low costs, and in a non-mechanical way. As…
