POSTPONED // MSE Seminar & Grace Hopper Lecture: “Materials for Quantum Technologies Through a Computational Lens”
September 29, 2022 at 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM
Refreshments served at 10:15 AM
In this talk, I will describe theoretical and computational strategies based on quantum mechanical calculations, aimed at predicting material properties suitable for the development of quantum technologies. Specifically, I will discuss the electronic structure and coherent states of spin defects in two- and three-dimensional semiconductors and insulators, obtained using both classical and near-term quantum computers.
