2017 International Workshop:Topological matter meets quantum information
Release Time:2017-05-17

Conference Scope

The desire to store and manipulate quantum information in a protected qubit at a physical level motivated the idea of topological quantum computing, leading consequently to the search of topological quantum matter and quantum devices that will enable this new approach to quantum information. This workshop will bring leading experts to present and discuss most recent progress made on both topological quantum matter and quantum information. Topics to be covered include Majorana zero modes in designed materials, topological and other unconventional superconductors, strongly entangled many electron systems, fault-tolerant quantum computation, and quantum error correction.  This workshop will aim to gain insights into these problems and identify future directions of research at the interface between traditional condensed matter physics and the newer field of quantum information.
