The University of Chicago Center in Hong Kong

hong kong

The workshop will focus on recent scientific and technological advances in new quantum technologies for computing, communication, imaging, and sensing. These areas include the use of semiconductors, superconductors, and trapped atoms as the basis for creating, storing, and communicating quantum information for emerging quantum technologies. In addition to progress in experimental research, recent developments in theory including materials modeling, computational techniques, and systems engineering will be presented in the workshop. Topics will include quantum computation and communication, as well as advanced sensing and imaging technologies ranging from single-molecule magnetic resonance imaging to targeted sensing with mobile quantum probes. The workshop aims to bring together experts in these fields from the United States and from the broader academic community in Hong Kong and the region to forge scientific links and collaborations.
