734. WE-Heraeus-Seminar 24 Oct - 28 Oct 2021 Where: Physikzentrum Bad Honnef Scientific organizers: Prof. Dr. Stefan Tautz, FZ J lich - Prof. Dr. Peter Puschnig, U Graz, Austria - Prof. Dr. Mathias Richter, PTB Berlin This seminar has been postponed from December 2020 to October 2021 due to the corona pandemic. Angle-resolved ultraviolet photoemission spectroscopy is arguably the most direct method of addressing the (filled) electronic structure critical for the electronic and optical properties of matter. The photoemission tomography technique, a combined experimental/theoretical approach based on interpretation of the photoelectron angular distribution in terms of a one-electron initial state, has been very useful in the characterizations of electronic properties of molecular films from sub-monolayers to multilayers. This includes the unambiguous assignment of emissions to particular molecular orbitals, their reconstruction to real space orbitals, the deconvolution of spectra into individual orbital contributions beyond the limits of energy resolution, the extraction of detailed geometric information, and the precise description of the charge balance and transfer at the interfaces. Despite these successes, the theoretical description of the angular distribution of photoelectrons remains challenging and is - at the current level of theory - presently crude. Moreover, there has been significant progress in momentum space imaging photoemission spectrometers with extensions to the spin- and time-resolved domains, which make present models inadequate. The seminar will bring together experts and young researchers interested in the application and the future developments of momentum space imaging of matter. The major aim of the seminar is to set photoemission tomography on firm grounds and to identify the directions for future theoretical and experimental investigations. The scope of the seminar includes but is not limited to Photoemission tomography and photoelectron diffraction Limitations of the plane wave final state approximation Real space orbital reconstruction and phase retrieval Theoretical advances: Time dependent DFT, multiple scattering theory Experimental advances: Imaging spin-and time-resolved detectors, high harmonics generation etc. Valence band electronic structure of organic molecular films and 2D materials The conference language will be English. The Wilhelm and Else Heraeus-Foundation bears the cost of full-board accommodation for all participants.

Working towards adaptive regulatory strategies and industry standardization is essential to strengthen international collaborative partnerships and spur innovation in this space. The panel will explore what mechanisms can be used to drive international trade and collaboration in quantum technologies. We will also explore how to enable further cooperation on shared research, as well as other areas of shared interest such skills and talent and facilitating greater collaboration between companies and governments. Session two: Quantum Commercialisation Quantum driven technologies, solutions, products and services are expected to be transformational to areas such as national security, finance, telecommunications,?construction?and civil engineering.? Internationally, industries are preparing to harness the incredible opportunity of Quantum, powered by efforts across government, industry and academia to work beyond borders to deliver additional support and funding for the emerging quantum ecosystems developing nationally. This panel will showcase where examples of international collaboration has directly supported the development of quantum technologies and products; navigate how to best promote collaboration across nations, supporting start-up and SME ecosystems, and tackle concerns for the quantum ecosystem that may build international barriers, such as brain drain and knowledge sharing.

Device-independent certification schemes have gained a lot of interest lately. In this regard, we explore quantum steering for certifying higher-dimensional quantum systems in a one-sided device-independent way. In the first part of the talk, I would discuss our proposal of a one-sided device-independent protocol that could certify any set of d-outcome projective measurements which do not share any common invariant subspace which we termed as 'genuinely incompatible measurements' which includes mutually unbiased bases which are an important resource for quantum cryptography. We also find the robustness of our protocol for a class of mutually unbiased bases towards experimental imperfections. In the second part of the talk, I would discuss our proposal of a one-sided device-independent protocol that could certify any bipartite entangled state using a minimal number of measurements possible, that is, two per subsystem. Using the certified state, we were able to certify every extremal POVM which in turn can be used to certify randomness of amount 2logd bits, which is the maximum amount that can be achieved using quantum systems of dimension d. ___________________________________________________ Kind regards, Susane Calegari, Jarek Korbicz, Micha?

756. WE-Heraeus-Seminar 01 Nov - 05 Nov 2021 Where: Physikzentrum Bad Honnef Scientific organizers: Dr. Robert Drost, Max-Planck-Institut f r Festk?rperforschung, Stuttgart - Dr. Christian Lotze, Freie Universit?t Berlin - Dr. Anna Ros?awska, CNRS Strasbourg, France Since their invention in the 1980s, scanning probe microscopy (SPM) methods have become a vital tool for atomic-scale imaging. Remarkably, these techniques, most prominently scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) and atomic force microscopy (AFM), have evolved far beyond the concept of pure imaging devices and nowadays feature a full physico-chemical lab at the nanoscale. The ability to control single atoms or molecules, probe forces between them and study their interactions with electromagnetic fields in both static and time-resolved fashion allows studies of physical processes with unprecedented resolution. The aim of the WEH seminar 'Faster, smaller, stronger, brighter - Advances in Scanning Probes Techniques' is to pedagogically present the recent progress in this rapidly progressing field and provide a platform for extended discussions profitable especially for the younger researchers in the community.

Computing has become pervasive in our lives, with microprocessors of many types, scales, and characteristics powering everything from home devices to high performance computing systems, from digital sensors to data centers, from cars to cloud computing services. Persistent exponential advances in microprocessors and semiconductor technologies present more performance at less cost and lower power consumption annually. However, there are important applications in healthcare, energy, environment, security, and more for which the annual increases in microprocessors remain woefully insufficient. Researchers, technology companies, government agencies, and others around the world are eager to discover and develop new methods of computing that can offer orders of magnitude greater performance for these societally important applications--and the leading candidate is now quantum computing. What is quantum computing? Is it 'real', and what makes it promising for these kinds of applications? What are the scientific principles that underpin it? What are the technologies and companies that are most promising now? How will it complement 'classical' computing technologies? When will it offer real impact for your company or organization (and your competitors) and what should you start doing to prepare for quantum computing? Our panel of experts--whurley of Strangeworks, Aparna Prabhakar of IBM, and Ken Durazzo of Dell Technologies--will answer these questions and more, including yours! ?Join us in-person or on Zoom for this great conversation!

Particle physicists have developed numerous classical algorithms to process data from high-energy particle collisions. Computational efficiency is an important criteria for selecting collider data analysis strategies, which is often weighed more heavily than physics performance. Could quantum algorithms change the kinds of analysis tools we use for collider physics? Could quantum principles like superposition and unitary inspire new kinds of classical algorithms? Drawing on examples from the study of jets from quantum chromodynamics, I explain some of the conceptual challenges for developing quantum algorithms for collider physics and some of the quantum-inspired advances that have already found applications.

Quantum material characterization for streamlined qubit development
Thu., Nov. 11, 2021, 12:00pm-1:00pm (EST/GMT-0500) [Start time local timezone converter]
selfURL Content Level: 400 (For Quantum Ready)
Title: Quantum material characterization for streamlined qubit development Qubits are the main building blocks of quantum devices: improving their performance at every stage of development is thus crucial. A qubit's properties such as its coherence time are directly affected by their architecture and design as well as by the materials chosen. Building a qubit to test each possible variable adds an unnecessary overhead to the characterization effort: this is why it is desirable to develop fast and efficient benchmarks at earlier stages in the process. In this webinar, application scientists Ed, Clemens, Jim and Jelena will demonstrate how lock-in amplifiers operating at frequencies well below the qubits themselves offer a prime way to probe and understand material properties relevant for qubit coherence while keeping measurement times and complexity to a minimum. In this webinar you will learn: - What the basic working principles of semi- and superconducting qubits are, including hybrid approaches; - How material properties can influence a qubit's coherence; - How to characterize materials for qubits quickly and efficiently with a lock-in amplifier; and - How to characterize frequency and loss fluctuations in readout resonators.

28 Nov - 01 Dec 2021 Where: Physikzentrum Bad Honnef Scientific organizers: Prof. Marzena Szymanska, U College London, UK - Prof. Jacqueline Bloch, CNRS, France - Dr. Paulo Santos, PDI Berlin This seminar has been postponed from June 2020 to November 2021 due to the corona pandemic. Quantum simulation, the use of a controllable quantum system to mimic the operation of other, more complex quantum systems, provides a pathway for solving quantum problems with a complexity level not accessible by classical computers. This quantum technology is presently classified as a leading approach to solve complex many-body problems with potential applications in the design of new materials and drugs. The WE-Heraeus Seminar aims at bringing together experts in this emerging field to train students (at the MSc and PhD Levels) and young researchers interested in the area and discuss recent developments in a stimulating and informal atmosphere. The three-day seminar will consist of 17 tutorial-like lectures (50 min long) as well as 8 specialized talks (approx. 25 min long) covering topics such as (i) theoretical basis for quantum simulation, (ii) state-of-the-art of different platforms for quantum simulation (e.g., optical lattices of cold atoms, superconducting qubits, photonic simulators); (iii) novel concepts for scalable quantum processing and simulation exploring strongly coupled light-matter states, (iv) theoretical models for strongly correlated and dissipative systems, and (v) application of topological protection for robust quantum simulation. The scientific program will be complemented by poster sessions where the participants can present their results and discuss them with experts in the field. The exchange and cross-fertilization of ideas enabled by the seminar is expected to strengthen existing collaborations and foster new ones as well as enhance the visibility of the field. The conference language will be English. The Wilhelm and Else Heraeus-Foundation bears the cost of full-board accommodation for all participants.

Theoretical predictions of the properties and dynamics of quantum many-body systems of importance to nuclear physics research, from field theories to dense and/or non-equlibrium matter to systems of neutrinos, require, in many instances, beyond classical computational resources. As highlighted by Feynman and others, such systems may be amenable to quantum simulations in the future. The very first steps are now being taken towards this objective. I will discuss the potential and status of this newly emerging area of quantum simulations for nuclear physics.
