Entanglement and Transfer of Quantum Information


we have been made aware of a very convincing phone scam that is focusing on our workshop participants. Participants may be contacted by phone by a firm called Business Travel Management to arrange accommodation for workshops and/or programmes.  This includes a request to enter credit card information.

Please note, INI will never contact you over the phone requesting card details. We take all payments via the University of Cambridge Online store

If you have been contacted by this company please contact us as soon as possible.

27th September 2004 to 1st October 2004

Organisers: Andrew Briggs (Oxford), David DiVincenzo (IBM) and Martin Plenio (Imperial College)

Workshop Theme

Crucial to any implementation of quantum information processing are the controlled creation of entanglement between qubits and the controlled transfer of quantum information, in particular between stationary qubits and propagating qubits. Photons are the most natural candidates as propagating qubits for long-range communication, but for short-range communication other approaches may be taken such as moving matter qubits or excitations in systems of interacting particles. For static qubits there is a wide range of possibilities, ranging from nuclear and electron spin to single and collective excitations. With many candidates being available, optimal choices have yet to be identified for both static and flying qubits.

This workshop, organized by the QIP IRC in association with the Isaac Newton Institute Quantum Information Science programme, provides a forum for discussions with the aim of reviewing leading experimental programmes within the theme of entanglement and transfer of qubits, to relate these to theoretical developments in quantum information processing and to identify promising roads towards the controlled entanglement and transfer of quantum information.
