August 6, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Presenter: A. Prof Nicolas C Menicucci ,CQC²T Chief Investigator, RMIT Quantum computers promise to revolutionise information processing by exploiting the curious features of quantum physics. One of the biggest challenges to a viable quantum computer with real-world impact is scaling it up to handle large computations. Optical modes can be stitched together into extremely large entangled resource states for quantum computing, comprising one million modes or more, if continuous variables are used instead of single photons. In this talk, I…
