Chingiz Kabytayev successfully defended his thesis Quantum control for time-dependent noise. Congratulations to Chingiz!
Ncamiso Khanyile successfully defends his thesis Vibrational spectroscopy of sympathetically laser-cooled CaH+. Congratulations to JB!
Colin and I wrote a high-level review of recent advances in magic state distillation and gate compilation in the context of quantum chemistry calculations on a quantum computer. It has been accepted for publication in the International Journal of Quantum Chemistry. A preprint version is available on the arXiv.
Update: Published version available here.
Mauricio and I posted a paper titled Comparison of a quantum error correction threshold for exact and approximate errors to the ArXiv. The paper examines how different approximations of the same physical error lead to different results for the logical errors.
Mauricio Gutierrez received an outstanding talk award for his presentation on quantum error correction at the School of Chemistry and Biochemistry student-faculty retreat. Congratulations Mauricio!
