Rene successfully defends his thesis Spectroscopy of molecular ions in Coulomb crystals. Congratulations Rene!
Rene's thesis builds off his three publications listed below:
Trapping and sympathetic cooling of Boron ions, R. Rugango, M. Sinhal, G. Shu, and K. R. Brown, arXiv:1609.09521 (2016)
I forgot my camera on the last day of class.
In addition to fundamentals of quantum computation, a large part of the class dealt with surface codes. Final projects covered a wide range of topics from implementation of quantum computation on ion traps to quantum algorithms based on random walks.
Students were from the following majors: CHEM, CHBE, CS, CSE, ECE, and PHYS,
Special thanks to Colin Trout for serving as the unofficial TA.
