Exploring A Practical Development Of Quantum Computing, Juliano A. Everett, Andrea N. Zambrano, Carlos Aguayza Apr 2019

Exploring A Practical Development Of Quantum Computing, Juliano A. Everett, Andrea N. Zambrano, Carlos Aguayza

Publications and Research

Tasked with describing a Quantum architecture (Superconducting loops), we additionally explored how the chosen architecture is used, developed, and how one could get started in understanding the way in which some quantum algorithms work with this architecture through Python and IBM's tools (Qiskit and IBM Q Experience).


Computational Techniques For Scattering Amplitudes, Juliano A. Everett Dec 2018

Computational Techniques For Scattering Amplitudes, Juliano A. Everett

Publications and Research

Scattering amplitudes in quantum field theory can be described as the probability of a scattering process to happen within a high energy particle interaction, as well as a bridge between experimental measurements and the prediction of the theory.

In this research project, we explore the Standard Model of Particle Theory, it’s representation in terms of Feynman diagrams and the algebraic formulas associated with each combination.

Using the FeynArts program as a tool for generating Feynman diagrams, we evaluate the expressions of a set of physical processes, and explain why these techniques become necessary to achieve this goal.


Comparative Study Of Qubits, Juliano A. Everett, Mubinjon Satymov, Zechariah Ilmot May 2018

Comparative Study Of Qubits, Juliano A. Everett, Mubinjon Satymov, Zechariah Ilmot

Publications and Research

In quantum computing, a quantum bit ("qubit") is a unit of quantum information. A qubit is a two-level quantum system. The developing of qubits with optimal properties, related to quantum entanglement and possibilities of control the states of qubits, is very important for quantum computing applications. We analyzed various types of qubits. There are at least five major quantum computing approaches being explored worldwide: silicon spin qubits, ion traps, superconducting loops, diamond vacancies and topological qubits. We compared the advantages and disadvantages in the properties of all these qubits for applications for quantum computing. We analyzed possible strategies to improve ...


Session D-6: Teaching Modern Physics, Peter Dong Mar 2012

Session D-6: Teaching Modern Physics, Peter Dong

Professional Learning Day

Modern physics is an excellent way to get students interested in physics – the “weirdness” of relativity and quantum mechanics captures the imagination. This presentation discusses how to teach the subject in a way that encourages this interest. This year’s session will focus on teaching quantum mechanics in a way that is interesting to students and avoids common misconceptions.


Quirky, Not Quacky: Quantum Computing For Librarians, Jill Cirasella Jan 2009

Quirky, Not Quacky: Quantum Computing For Librarians, Jill Cirasella

Publications and Research

This slideshow introduces librarians and non-scientists to the relatively young field of quantum computing.
