QFARM Quantum Seminar Series presents "Robust Quantum Information Processing with Bosonic Modes"

Robust Quantum Information Processing with Bosonic Modes
Wednesday, May 27, 2020 - 12:00pm
Zoom ID: 987 676 025
Liang Jiang (University of Chicago)
Abstract / Description: 

Bosonic modes are widely used for quantum communication and information processing. Recent developments in superconducting circuits enable us to control bosonic microwave cavity modes and implement arbitrary operations allowed by quantum mechanics, such as quantum error correction against excitation loss errors. We investigate various bosonic codes, error correction schemes, and potential applications.


Liang Jiang received his BS from Caltech in 2004 and PhD from Harvard University in 2009. He then worked as a Sherman Fairchild postdoctoral fellow at Caltech. In 2012, Jiang joined the faculty of Yale University as an assistant professor and later as an associate professor of Applied Physics. He was awarded the Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowship, and the David and Lucile Packard Foundation Fellowship in 2013. In 2019, Jiang moved to his current position as professor at the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering.
