Fuse: Coffee & Pastries with Faculty

Informal undergrad and faculty chat
Abstract / Description: 

Interested in various research and opportunities as an undergraduate student of electrical engineering? Join peers and faculty in Packard 318 for informal conversations and discovery (and pastries)!


ABOUT FUSE: The mission of Fuse is to improve student life and foster community amongst the undergraduates in the electrical engineering department. By serving as a platform for social activities and events, Fuse aims to establish a network that students can leverage to succeed academically, as well as encourage work-life balance and facilitate communication between undergraduates and the EE faculty and staff.

Spacetime replication of continuous variable quantum information [IEEE Information Theory Society, Santa Clara Valley Chapter]

Spacetime replication of continuous variable quantum information
Abstract / Description: 

It is well known that no information can be transmitted faster than light, and it is also known that quantum information cannot be cloned or copied arbitrarily. These two "laws" place restrictions on the transmission of information through spacetime, but are there other limitations? The answer is no: the only such restrictions are (1) no-signalling (faster- than-light communication), and (2) no-cloning of quantum information. In this talk, This talk will first provide a brief introduction to some fundamentals of quantum information theory (including the no-cloning theorem and quantum error correction), and then it will show that any process that transmits information through spacetime without violating (1) or (2) is physically realizable as a so-called spacetime information replication task. In particular, this talk will describe how one can succeed at distributing information in seemingly impossible ways using quantum error correction, and showcase new, continuous variable quantum error correcting codes that can efficiently replicate information in spacetime.
