Título: Power of Adiabatic Quantum Computing: Theory and Reality

The paradigm of Adiabatic Quantum Computing (AQC) is a simple yet intriguing approach to problem solving on a quantum computer. Unlike the more recognized quantum circuit model, AQC is an analog method that does not require the use of quantum gates and is therefore considered by many easier to implement. I will discuss recent theoretical developments in the field of AQC as well as our current understanding  of the power and limitations of experimental quantum adiabatic processors.

Day 4 – VI Paraty Quantum Information Workshop

Today we had the Workshop’s eagerly anticipated boat trip. That didn’t prevent us from having a full morning session, with six talks.

The first talk of the morning was by Dario Gerace (Pavia), and it was on ways to establish long-distance entanglement between quantum dots in solid state systems. Dario started with a review of entanglement measures, some results on entanglement dynamics in open quantum systems, and bath engineering. Then he introduced the main open problem addressed by his talk: how far can two qubits be and still display entanglement in current solid state systems? Read the rest of this entry »
