Two-line summary of talk:
Understanding and harnessing the power of quantum mechanics is the goal of Quantum Information Science (QIS) an emerging field at the crossroads of Physics, Computer Science, and Engineering. Hear how HP Labs is using QIS.
Nanotechnology builds devices that are constituted of only a few atoms. Objects at these scales obey the laws of quantum mechanics. Understanding and harnessing the power of quantum mechanics is the goal of Quantum Information Science (QIS) an emerging field at the crossroads of Physics, Computer Science, and Engineering. This talk will explore the interconnections between QIS and Nanotechnology and give an overview of the HP Labs program to study these connections.
Marco Fiorentino received a Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Naples, Italy in 2000. Since he has held positions at Northwestern University, the University of Rome, and MIT. He is currently at HP Labs' Quantum Research Science. His work focuses on quantum optics with applications to quantum information communications and computing.
