Undergraduate Research Symposium

On April 23, 2014 Georgia Tech held the 9th Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium. JP and Karl both gave talks and I gave a poster presentation.

Karl, John, and JP graduate!

Karl Burkhardt (Chem BS 2014) is headed to UT Austin to pursue a PhD in Physics.

John Gray (Chem/Phys BS 2014) is headed to CU Boulder to pursue a PhD in Physics.

JP Addison (Phys BS 2014) is off to California to pursue a job in Silicon Valley.

Transformed composite pulse sequence paper posted to the ArXiv

True Merrill et al. describe the theoretical development and experimental demonstration of transformed composite pulse sequences for qubit addressing. Download the paper here. The work is a collaboration between the Brown lab and the QIS group at GTRI.

John and Karl at SERMACS 2013

Karl Burkhardt and John Gray both presented at the South East Regional Meeting of the American Chemical Society .

Karl gave a talk on Towards quantum information in a cryogenic ion trap.
John presented a poster on Progress towards sideband cooling of atomic ion - molecular ion Coulomb crystals.

JP Addison awarded Spring 2014 PURA

JP Addison was awarded a 2014 President's Undergraduate Research Award to work on Optimized Smooth Pulses for Ion Trap Quantum Computers. Congratulations JP!

Muyuan Li heads back to Haverford

Muyuan Li, an undergraduate at Haverford College, worked in the lab this summer as part of the NSF Center for Chemical Innovation on Quantum Information for Quantum Chemistry. He studied composite pulses with his mentor Chingiz Kabytayev.
