Optical Quasicrystals-Quantum Simulations beyond periodic systems

selfURL Content Level: 500 (For Quantum Professional)
Quasicrystals are an intriguing form of condensed matter that is not periodic, but nonetheless long-range ordered. They can be described as self-similar, fractal structures containing more than one type of unit cell, similarly to the celebrated Penrose tiling. Despite them being long-range ordered like a crystal, many foundational concepts of periodic systems such as Bloch waves or Brillouin zones are not applicable. This peculiar situation enables new physics including fractal band structures, many-body localization, phasonic degrees of freedom, and an intriguing direct link to higher dimensions. I will present our experimental realization of an eightfold symmetric optical quasicrystal for ultracold atoms and demonstrate how matterwave diffraction directly reveals the self-similar fractal nature of this potential and realizes continuous quantum walks in up to four synthetic dimensions. I will also present the localization transition in these potentials and close with an outlook on realizing many-body localization and the so-far elusive 2D Bose glass in these potentials. references Matteo Sbroscia, Konrad Viebahn, Edward Carter, Jr-Chiun Yu, Alexander Gaunt, and Ulrich Schneider Observing localization in a 2D quasicrystalline optical lattice Physical Review Letters 125 200604 2020 Konrad Viebahn, Matteo Sbroscia, Edward Carter, Jr-Chiun Yu, and Ulrich Schneider Matter-wave diffraction from a quasicrystalline optical lattice Physical Review Letters 122 110404 2019 Attila Szab? and Ulrich Schneider Mixed spectra and partially extended states in a two-dimensional quasiperiodic model Physical Review B 101 014205 2020

Our first speaker of 2021 is Nikitas Stamatopoulos from Goldman Sachs. Abstract In this talk I will describe the results and methods used to perform the first end-to-end rigorous resource estimation for quantum advantage in financial derivative pricing, as presented in https://arxiv.org/abs/2012.03819 in a collaboration between Goldman Sachs and IBM. In this paper, we focus on the number of qubits and T-depth required to price derivative contracts of practical interest in the industry, where the end-to-end runtime and approximation errors are comparable to state-of-the-art classical Monte Carlo methods. We introduce a new method - the re-parameterization method - which allows loading stochastic processes on a quantum device resolving blocking issues inherent in previously proposed methods. Finally, we discuss the hardware progress still required for quantum advantage to be realized in practice. Bio Nikitas Stamatopoulos is a Vice President in the R&D Engineering Division at Goldman Sachs, with research focus on applications of quantum computing in finance. Prior to joining Goldman Sachs, he was a quantitative researcher at JPMorgan Chase for 7 years, focusing on HPC solutions for quantitative problems in derivatives pricing and portfolio optimization, and from 2018 to 2020 leading the investment bank's research in quantum computing. He holds a PhD in Physics from Dartmouth College with focus in Field Theory and Cosmology.

Speaker: Jan-Rainer Lahmann, IBM Quantum Ambassador & Qiskit Advocate, Member of the IBM Academy of Technology In this meetup, Jan-Rainer Lahmann will present and discuss the details of the RasQberry project. The RasQberry project: Exploring Quantum Computing and Qiskit with a Raspberry Pi and a 3D Printer Quantum Computing - which is based on Quantum Mechanics - is a complex technology that is hard to understand for most people. Completely new algorithms - and even new thinking - is needed to exploit the potential power of upcoming quantum computers. This requires new approaches to teach Quantum Computing in engaging and understandable ways for IT experts, developers and young academics. RasQberry integrates Qiskit, a Raspberry Pi (the full range from Pi 4 down to a Pi Zero) and a 3D printed model of IBM Q System One to explore various state of the art technologies and create a tool that can be used in meetings, meetups, demo booths, etc. A spectrum of Quantum Computing demos and Serious Games for Quantum Computing (that illustrate superposition, interference and entanglement) will be made available on this device for an engaging introduction to Quantum Computing. ? The project is on GitHub http://rasqberry.org ? Part of it (the SW install, not the 3D model) is published on medium.com: https://medium.com/qiskit/rasqberry-quantum-computing-is-the-coolest-project-for-raspberry-pi-3f64bec5a133 If some of you are interested in building a RasQberry themselves or even contribute to the opensource project - we could have another session 4-6 weeks later to help with the actual build and share experiences within the team.

Provable private randomness from untrusted devices

selfURL Content Level: 400 (For Quantum Ready)
Title; Provable private randomness from untrusted devices Speaker: Cameron Foreman, Researcher, CQC Abstract Randomness is required in many applications, from simulations to cryptography. It is essential that this randomness is unbiased and private, else, the results in simulations are meaningless and the keys used in cryptography are unsecure. But the question is, how do we know if the randomness we use has these properties? Device-independent randomness provides the solution to this question - giving provably unbiased and private randomness. In my talk I will present the different approaches to randomness generation (and ultimately, their limitations). I will then talk about a new approach - the idea of generating provable randomness with minimal assumptions - device independent randomness. Then, I will get into the technical details of how this is achieved in our device independent randomness and privacy amplification protocol. Finally, I will explain how this is adapted to be implemented on today's quantum computers - giving verifications impossible from any existing commercial random number generator. Bio: Cameron Foreman is a Quantum Cryptography Researcher at Cambridge Quantum Computing. He received his Masters degree in Mathematics from the University of Exeter, specializing in post-quantum public key cryptography, specifically protocols based on quantum walks. Since graduating, he has been researching quantum information theory - mainly in the area of device independent cryptography.
