Physics

The second quantum revolution and its impact on information technology 
 
Wed, Mar 07, 2018,   05:00 PM at Sir C V Raman Auditorium, LHC

Prof. Dieter Suter
Technical University of Dortmund

The "Digital Revolution" that transformed our lives and our economy is based on the ubiquity of information-processing devices whose processing power increased exponentially for many decades, following Moore's law. As this trend is approaching fundamental physical limits, new directions are explored for even more powerful computational devices based on quantum mechanical systems. Such devices can solve problems that will remain out of reach for conventional computers. The main difficulty for their implementation is the fragility of information stored in suitable physical systems that obey the laws of quantum mechanics. This talk will highlight some aspects of the potential offered by quantum computers, as well as the difficulties that must be overcome to realise this potential
