Minicourse @CBPF: Enrique Solano – 15-17.08, 10h30

In August, Enrique Solano (University of the Basque Country) will be visiting the Quantum Information and Quantum Optics Group at UFRJ. Solano got his PhD in 2000 at UFRJ under supervision of Nicim Zagury. Today he is the head of the Quantum Technologies for Information Science at the University of the Basque Country, and has published around 30 papers just in 2016. Many of these papers are about quantum simulations.

During his visit, Solano will give a set of three lectures on “Fundamentals and applications of quantum simulations”. Due to the Olympic Games, the course will be held at CBPF. See the information below and don’t miss this chance! If you are planning to attend this course, and you should do it, please send an e-mail to fmelo [at], such that we can organize a corresponding lecture room and have a list of the participants at the entrance of CBPF. See you there!

Title: Fundamentals and applications of quantum simulations

Speaker: Prof. Enrique Solano (University of the Basque Country, Bilbao, Spain)

Coordinates: room 601D (tentative), CBPF. 15,16, and 17 of August, 10h30-12h00

Summary: I will introduce quantum simulations from a fundamental perspective and also as a quantum technology that may soon reach quantum supremacy. Furthermore, I will provide examples on both analog and digital quantum simulations in the frame of advanced quantum platforms as trapped ions and superconducting circuits. Finally, I will introduce the novel concept of embedding quantum simulator for reproducing unphysical operations and measure entanglement without full tomography.
