Title: Explaining Circuit Model of Quantum Computing as if it Occurred in an Escape Room Game Abstract: The talk is on teaching the circuit model of quantum computing. It presents a method to explain algorithms on n qubits in n-dimensional space, thus not in 2^n-dimensional space. It is particularly interesting for n=3. Here algorithms can be illustrated using an ordinary cube (which everybody can easily imagine) and not using the 8-dimensional space (which is much harder to imagine). We will illustrate the method with the teleportation protocol. The method was developed at THM (Technische Hochschule Mittelhessen) and turned out to be useful in teaching the circuit model of quantum computing. Speaker's Bio: Dr. Bettina Just got a PhD in Maths and Computer Science from Goethe-University at Frankfurt, then spent more than 15 years in insurance industry, managing IT-projects. Since 2010, I am a full professor at THM (Technische Hochschule Mittelhessen). I am cofounder and organizer of a network "Quanten an HAWn", which ist "quantums at universities of applied sciences". The subject of the talk was developed at THM, and is first published in the book "Quantencomputing kompakt - Spukhafte Fernwirkung und Teleportation endlich verst?ndlich" Springer Verlag: https://www.springer.com/de/book/9783662618882.

Quantum computing has grown beyond the realm of advanced graduate school courses - today, high school and undergraduate educators are incorporating quantum concepts into curricula across disciplines. That's why the IBM Quantum team is thrilled to announce the IBM Quantum Educator Summit, a two-day digital conference aimed at high school and undergraduate educators who want to learn how to start building quantum computing components into their courses. The IBM Quantum Educator Summit will be a first-of-its-kind experiment in empowering educators to prepare their students for a future with quantum computing. This conference is for undergraduate professors and high school teachers in any discipline who are eager to fit quantum computing into their classes. The summit will center around the math, science, and computer science central to quantum computing, while enrichment sessions will explore other focus areas. The summit will take place August 3-4, 2021. Quantum for students everywhere The education team at IBM Quantum has produced hundreds of hours of content, through our Qiskit Textbook and YouTube channel, meant to teach quantum computing to anyone. The Educator Summit, however, is about more than just content; it focuses instead on how teachers can include quantum computing in their own curricula. The Educator Summit will answer questions like: How can I teach my students about quantum algorithms using Qiskit? What kinds of learning materials are available for physics students, computer science students, or engineering students? Are there hands-on resources I can use in my courses? Additionally, educators from around the United States who have long taught quantum computing in their classrooms to share their successes. Attendees will see how students at New York University built a pedagogically friendly model of a physical qubit using off-the-shelf materials; see how the American Association of Physics Teachers prepares teachers with no quantum computing background; and see the work that's gone into successful lesson plans in multiple classrooms. Attendees will receive training from IBM Researchers on quantum programming tools such as the IBM Quantum Composer and open-source Qiskit software development kit, hear directly from educators who have already taught quantum computing in their classrooms, receive new curriculum packs and training, explore tools to teach quantum computing in an array of fields, and network with like-minded attendees. We aim to prepare all participants to be able to integrate at least one quantum computing concept into their class, be it through a one-day lesson or a two-week unit, during this upcoming school year. This conference will be North America-focused, but open globally. Registration is open now, click here to join. Training the future quantum workforce IBM Quantum is proud to support students and teachers at every level of education. Initiatives like the Researchers and Educators Programs allow post-graduates and their professors to gain unique access to our systems and do cutting edge research with IBM processors. We continue to work with undergraduate students through University Hackathons and workshops, where in just the past six months we have reached more than 15,000 students around the globe, teaching them how to use Qiskit and run their first circuits. Public schools like the Mission San Jose High School in Fremont, CA, find creative ways to engage their students, planning virtual field trips with IBM researchers that allow their students to tour our labs and experience a day in the life of an engineer. We continue to work with undergraduate students through University hackathons and workshops, where in just the past six months we have reached more than 3,500 students around the globe, teaching them how to use Qiskit and run their first circuits. As an organization we're also proud to support other groups that are democratizing quantum computing education. Through our partnership with The Coding School, we were able to teach over 8,000 high school students the fundamentals of quantum physics and computing. Our desire to highlight student work, and empowering students to excel even further, has brought plenty of other projects to life that will further broaden the potential for teaching quantum, such as the free textbook, 'Quantum Computing for the Quantum Curious,' Ciaran Hughes, Joshua Isaacson, Anastasia Perry, Ranbel Sun, and Jessica Turner. A few of those authors will be speaking at the Summit! Ultimately, the IBM Quantum team hopes to maximize access to quantum education. By teaching students from a broad range of disciplines and backgrounds, we can help build a vibrant and diverse quantum computing workforce of tomorrow. We hope you'll join along in that mission by attending the IBM Quantum Educator Summit.

His research focuses on the implementation of error-correction in trapped-ion systems, as well as developing and utilising new capabilities through the exploration of new technological approaches. Title: 'Approaches to scaling trapped-ion quantum computing' I will describe recent work which attempts to provide new approaches for bridging the divide between current scale trapped-ion systems and the realm of useful fault-tolerant computers. In recent experimental work, we have used waveguides integrated into a trap chip to deliver light to ions trapped 50 micron above the surface, demonstrating the use of a two-qubit quantum logic gate to produce a Bell state with 99.3(2)% fidelity. This approach allows fibers to be plugged into the chip, providing significant advantages for scaling. In a further chip, we are exploring the use of a standing wave field produced using the integrated optics to control the ions, which may allow standard gate methods to be speeded up. I will also describe progress towards scaling using micro-fabricated Penning traps, which would eliminate a number of problems which plague ion trap quantum computing stemming from the use of radio-frequency fields for trapping. 4.

718. WE-Heraeus-Seminar 03 Aug - 07 Aug 2021 Where: Physikzentrum Bad Honnef Scientific organizers: Prof. Dr. David Hunger, Karlsruher Institut f r Technologie - Dr. Andreas Walter, Lund University, Sweden - Dr. Kangwei Xia, U Stuttgart Quantum technologies could revolutionize specific areas such as secure communication or computing. The basic building blocks required to realize quantum devices are qubits which can be controlled, interfaced and read out. Optically addressable spins represent a particularly promising choice since they have the proven potential to serve as long-lived qubits, while the optical interface enables efficient and scalable control and readout as well as interconnection of qubits over large distances. In recent years, several material platforms have been demonstrated that allow one to implement single or few spin qubits that serve as the elementary building blocks of quantum devices. Elementary demonstrations of coherent quantum control, spin-photon and spin-spin entanglement, quantum gates, and quantum network primitives could be successfully shown. Still, it remains a challenging task to develop this further towards devices and scalable systems with use for applications e.g. for quantum computation and quantum communication. The aim of this workshop is to bring together the sub-fields of several promising platforms such as rare-earth-ion-doped solids, color centers in diamond and silicon carbide, quantum dots, and trapped ions, who all share the fundamental aspect of optically addressable spins. The goal is to provide an overview of the experimental and theoretical state-of-the-art with a focus on quantum computing and memory-based quantum communication, and to encourage interactions and exchange of ideas between the different fields. We invite experts and researchers at all career stages to join and contribute to the seminar. The conference language will be English. The Wilhelm and Else Heraeus-Foundation bears the cost of full-board accommodation for all participants.

His research is around quantum controls, verification, benchmarking and error mitigation. Abstract: A fully functional fault-tolerant quantum computer has the potential to efficiently solve a broad class of problems that are computationally intractable, even for the most powerful supercomputer. But building such a quantum computer is a difficult task, and we cannot run most of the quantum algorithms reliably with the noisy hardware of today. Variational quantum algorithms have been proposed in recent years that can be implemented in noisy quantum processors, and they are the leading contender for demonstrating quantum advantage with near-term hardware. In this talk, I will discuss what variational quantum algorithms are and how they can be used to solve problems taking advantage of both quantum and classical computing resources. Along the way, I will summarize what the current research directions are in variational algorithms and how one might start working on such problems. More information on Swarnadeep and his work can be found at http://brownlab.pratt.duke.edu .

751. WE-Heraeus-Seminar 25 Aug - 27 Aug 2021 Where: Physikzentrum Bad Honnef Scientific organizers: Dr. Anna Pappa, Dr. Alexander Carmele, Technische Universit?t Berlin - Prof. Dr. Janik Wolters, DLR Berlin Digital computers are visibly approaching their physical limits. Thus, there is a growing interest in post-digital computing approaches. This covers quantum information processing (QIP) and artificial neural networks (ANN) implemented in specialized hardware. Recent years have seen tremendous progress in both fields, both in theory and in experiments. The first QIP systems have demonstrated advantages compared to classical supercomputers for specific tasks, while ANNs showed capability for machine learning (ML), e.g. in pattern recognition. Research towards the realization of both is motivated by the unique opportunities across a range of intellectual and technical frontiers. Speech recognition, home automation, and autonomous driving are typical problems for ML, while QIP is expected to change our notions of physics, combinatorial problems, and possibly even biological systems. The common goal of both is to solve a variety of computational tasks that are inefficient to solve on digital computers. Optical platforms have high potential for both QIP and ANNs. The first components for optical QIP have been realized, e.g. small processors, highly efficient non-classical light sources, superconducting single photon detectors. Similar components enabled chip-integrated optical artificial neural networks (ONNs), which are in principle composed of linear optical networks and non-linearities. However, putting together all required components to demonstrate large scale photonic computers that outperform today's digital hardware remains challenging: given the variety and complexity of experimental and theoretical approaches, it is nearly impossible to unite expertise from all involved fields within one single research team. This seminar will bring together experts from different communities in order to discuss the prospects and challenges of combining their fields within a joint research effort on photonics for post-digital computers. The involved discussions will be highly beneficial not only for advancing the field, but also for supporting early stage researchers in their progress on becoming experts themselves. The conference language will be English. The Wilhelm and Else Heraeus-Foundation bears the cost of full-board accommodation for all participants.

It lies at the heart of the description of complex quantum systems, as encountered in atomic and nuclear physics, quantum optics, the phase-coherent dynamics of electrons and photons in condensed-matter systems including topological materials, as well as complex many-body systems, ranging from atoms and nuclei over spin chains to such as stipulated for quantum models of black holes. Conceptually, it provides the framework for unifying descriptions of such settings, and ties these to deep questions such as ergodicity and universality. In this workshop, we explore the rapid advancements in this field to emphasize the contributions of one of its main proponents, the late Prof. Fritz Haake, who shaped it from its very beginnings. The workshop will address problems and applications at the forefront of diverse current research directions such as quantum and atom optics, topological materials, and many-body physics.

Topic abstract : With the growing interest and innovation in quantum computing, the security of classical cryptography is at risk. As classical cryptography is based on complex mathematical problems, which could be solved in a fraction of second with these QCs. Quantum communication provides solution to this problem, based on the fundamentals of quantum mechanics such as no-cloning theorem and uncertainty principle. Information is encoded in different degrees of freedom of single photons such as polarization, phase, spin. Since the introduction of the first quantum key distribution (QKD) protocol BB84 in 1984 by Charles Bennett and Gilles Brassard, the research in the field has bloomed. With scholars around the world developing new and more efficient protocols to attain a shared objective of global quantum internet. QKD links has been demonstrated in both fiber-based and satellite based setups, but still there is a problem in terms of attaining sustainable key rates over large distances. One solution to this hurdle is to use quantum repeaters, but such technology is still in it's early stages, so the best way to attain such feat is to use a hybrid network comprising of both the fiber and satellite based QKD links. But there are challenges in the form of minimizing the attenuation, day-time operation for the satellite based links. Using appropriate and sophisticated optic systems, the impact from these problems could be minimized.

754. WE-Heraeus-Seminar 26 Sep - 29 Sep 2021 Where: Physikzentrum Bad Honnef Scientific organizers: Dr. Sven Ramelow, HU Berlin - PD Dr. Frank K hnemann, Fraunhofer IPM, Freiburg In the last two decades, the ability to prepare and manipulate quantum states at the individual level has led to a wide range of scientific activities. It is expected that the laws of quantum mechanics with phenomena such as quantum entanglement and quantum superposition will revolutionize a wide range of fields, now frequently coined the so-called 'second generation' quantum technologies. The area of quantum sensing is considered to be one which most likely is going to deliver real-world applications and products soon. Sensing with light in the form of imaging, microscopy, spectroscopy or other interferometric methods has always played an enormous role. As an example, quantum imaging aims at utilizing the properties of quantum optical states to overcome the limits of classical imaging. This seminar will cover theoretical and experimental aspects of sensing with quantum light. Topics will include modalities like sensing with undetected photons via nonlinear interferometers, sensing with squeezed light, induced, spectroscopy with entangled light, the generation of highly non-degenerate photon, high-dimensionally entangled light and their application potential for sensing tasks. By bringing together established scientists from leading research groups in the field, junior scientists and graduate students, participants from fundamental and applied physics and industry the seminar aims at providing a vibrant forum for the exchange of ideas and discussion.

We will explore U(1) lattice gauge theories with topological terms in D=1,2 and 3 spatial dimensions. For D=1, we scrutinize mass perturbation theory at small positive and negative fermion masses, with the latter case being inaccessible for MCMC. In D=2 we provide a resource efficient formulation of the Hamiltonian which can be used for both, tensor networks and quantum computations, and which works for all values of the coupling. In addition, it can be generalized to non-abelian groups and higher dimensions in a straightforward fashion. In our practical example in D=2 we use this formulation to simulate negative fermions masses and find an indication of a phase transition. In D=3 we provide a Hamiltonian formulation of the topological term, including non-abelian theories and explore the phase diagram of the model. Our results suggest a second order topological phase transition at strong coupling.

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.

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.

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.
