Introduction to Topological Quantum Computation

July 15, 2016 - 4:00pm
Speaker: 
Wade DeGottardi
Institution: 
JQI

I will present a pedagogical introduction to topological quantum computation. I will discuss how topologically ordered materials can solve the quantum memory problem and can serve as a platform for fault-tolerant quantum computation. I will discuss several candidate systems including superconductors which exhibit Majorana fermions.

(The JQI summer school is for students and postdocs, but others are welcome to join for refreshments afterwards; Discussion with pizza and refreshments at 5:00pm)

Host: Stephen Ragole
