Building Large (in number and space) Quantum Systems Using Remote Entanglement

August 17, 2018 - 3:30pm
Martin Lichtman
Abstract: Maintaining coherence in a quantum system is easier when they are simple and well isolated from the environment, which typically means starting small in both number of particles and the physical size of the system. Linking together these systems is one path toward "scaling up" quantum computing, and distributing the modules is necessary for a quantum network. Furthermore, distributing quantum systems gives access to spatial variation which may be of great interest to measure with a sensor network. We will discuss why remote entanglement is a necessary ingredient for such systems, various approaches to generating remote entanglement, and how these experiments reveal the "spooky" fundamental physics of our world.
