Brown Lab at Graduate Student Retreat

Aaron Calvin and John Condoluci presented recent results on CaH+ and CaD+ vibronic spectroscopy at the School of Chemistry and Biochemistry Graduate Student Retreat. The retreat was located in the north Georgia mountains at Ramah Darom.

CaH+ vibronic spectra paper accepted in ChemPhysChem


Our paper on Vibronic spectroscopy of sympathetically cooled CaH+ has been accepted at ChemPhysChem. We have measured for the first time the X-A transition in CaH+ and observed four vibronic transitions using dissociation of CaH+ in a Coulomb crystal.

Errors and pseudothresholds for incoherent and coherent noise posted to the arXiv

In this paper, we study the distinctive effects that incoherent and coherent errors have on an encoded qubit.  We use the effective 1-qubit process matrix at the logical level to understand the fundamental differences between these kinds of errors.  The paper can be found at

Experimental implementation of Bernstein-Vazirani algorithm posted to the arXiv

The Quantum Systems Group at GTRI have demonstrated the Bernstein-Vazirani algorithm in a surface electrode trap.  The Brown lab provided theoretical support for the project. The paper is now posted on the arXiv.
