NQN Workshop on Quantum Transduction

One of the primary bottlenecks in scaling quantum information networks lies in our current inability to efficiently control qubit interactions with high fidelity.

In scalable systems, interactions between similar qubits (e.g. two trapped ions) must be mediated via a quantum bus (e.g. phonons, photons). Similarly, different types of qubits excel at different tasks (e.g. fast operations vs. long storage times) so there is motivation to efficiently engineer interactions between dissimilar qubits.

The Northwest Quantum Nexus (NQN) is bringing together experts across many qubit platforms to define and seek solutions to the outstanding challenges in qubit transduction for a workshop at the University of Washington on November 14-15.

This 2-day workshop will be organized into focus sessions in which a series of 3-4 short talks will be followed by an open discussion with all workshop participants. Focus session topics will include photon-photon transduction, photon-spin transduction, ion-superconducting qubit transduction, interfacing to topological qubits, and machine learning to facilitate quantum measurement, control, and transduction.

This workshop is supported by NSF under Award 1936932.

When: November 14-15, 2019
