Papers on QECC and cold molecular ions published

Mauricio and Rene celebrate the publications of their papers in the last two weeks: M. Gutiérrez and K. R. Brown, Phys. Rev. A 91, 022335 (2015) and R. Rugango et al. New J. Phys. 17, 035009 (2015)

SQuInT 2015

Smitha and Chingiz present posters at SQuInT 2015 in Berkeley, CA. Abstracts for the posters can be found here

Review paper accepted in Int. J. Quantum Chem.

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.

Quantum error correction paper posted on the ArXiv

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 wins outstanding talk award at student-faculty retreat

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!
