http://www.confercare.manchester.ac.uk/events/icmm2021/ 17th International Conference on Molecule Based Magnets 14 - 18 June 2021 - ONLINE Welcome to ICMM2021, Manchester. Manchester is the first city of the industrial revolution, where atomic theory was founded by John Dalton, and where Rutherford discovered the atomic nucleus. Molecular magnetism has been a core activity in Manchester since the 1960s with work led by Jack Lewis, Frank Mabbs and David Machin, and so we are very proud of our history. Unfortunately due to the ongoing disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have taken the descision to make the 17th ICMM a fully-online conference. All of our plenary and invited speakers remain, and information regarding programme, abstracts and registration, will be updated on this website as soon as they are finalised. We look forward to virtually welcoming you to Manchester - at least you won't need an umbrella. Prof. Richard Winpenny and Dr Nicholas Chilton Co-Organisers, ICMM2021

A new gathering of the Quantum Serbia community is scheduled for Thursday, June 17. A lecture by Dr. Aleksandra Dimi?, from the Faculty of Physics, University of Belgrade, awaits us. http://www.nanolab.rs/ Introduction to Quantum Mechanics III: Fundamentals of quantum computing, quantum teleportation, quantum cryptography and detection of quantum correlations through nonlocal games. This is the third lecture in a row as part of the Introductory Quantum Programming Course, in which professors from the Faculty of Physics in Belgrade will hold three lectures in which they would make an introduction to basic quantum-mechanical concepts relevant to quantum computing. In this lecture, the basic quantum logic circuits will be introduced, as well as their parallel with the classical logic circuits. We will try to show how they work on a relatively simple example of quantum teleportation. We will mention other quantum algorithms and their applications. We will see that quantum correlations are an essential resource for quantum cryptography and non-local (Bell) games, and we will talk about possible ways to reliably detect quantum correlations. The lecture will take place on Zoom as before, we send the access link just before the start of the event. If you did not follow the first two lectures, we invite you to watch them later on our YouTube channel: Introductory course in quantum programming: Introduction to quantum mechanics https://youtu.be/6sWqwGTCGrs Introductory course in quantum programming: Introduction to quantum mechanics II https://youtu.be/SKJeLzo6mQA See you! =================== U ?etvrtak, 17. juna, zakazano je novo okupljanje Quantum Srbija zajednice.

By Dr Bernd Gotsmann, Principal Research Staff Member IBM Research Europe - Zurich Phonon transport is the dominant mechanism of thermal conduction in most solids and has been studied for decades. A good understanding on many transport regimes in micro- and nanostructures could be established, including ballistic and diffusive transport, mode softening, or band structure engineering in phononic crystals. However, the limit of quantized transport and the engineering of single transport channels is much less explored. Here, it will be reviewed some concepts, theoretical and experimental progress in the field. Then, ongoing works will be given, showing thermal conductance quantization in single-atom contacts and single molecule junctions.

The Landscape of Academic Literature in Quantum Technologies

Content level: 200 -- Event is for the "Quantum Climber" Title: The Landscape of Academic Literature in Quantum Technologies Speaker: Zeki Seskir, Ph.D. candidate in Physics at METU, Ankara Abstract: In this study, we investigated the academic literature on quantum technologies (QT) using bibliometric tools. We used a set of 49,823 articles obtained from the Web of Science (WoS) database using a search query constructed through expert opinion. Analysis of this revealed that QT is deeply rooted in physics, and the majority of the articles are published in physics journals. Keyword analysis revealed that the literature could be clustered into three distinct sets, which are (i) quantum communication/cryptography, (ii) quantum computation, and (iii) physical realizations of quantum systems. We performed a burst analysis that showed the emergence and fading away of certain key concepts in the literature. This is followed by co-citation analysis on the highly cited articles provided by the WoS, using these we devised a set of core corpus of 34 publications. Comparing the most highly cited articles in this set with respect to the initial set we found that there is a clear difference in most cited subjects. Finally, we performed co-citation analyses on country and organization levels to find the central nodes in the literature. Overall, the analyses of the datasets allowed us to cluster the literature into three distinct sets, construct the core corpus of the academic literature in QT, and to identify the key players on country and organization levels, thus offering insight into the current state of the field. Search queries and access to figures are provided in the appendix. CV/Bio: Zeki Seskir received his M.Sc. degrees in Physics (2015), and Science and Technology Policy Studies (2019), and is a Ph.D. candidate in Physics at METU, Ankara. His research interests include quantum networks, foundations of quantum mechanics, quantum education, quantum games, technology assessment, science and technology studies, and societal impact of quantum technologies. He is a member of Society for the Social Studies of Science (4S).

724. WE-Heraeus-Seminar 27 Jun - 30 Jun 2021 Where: Online Seminar (MeetAnyway) Scientific organizers: Dr. Tobias Donner, ETH Zurich, Switzerland - Prof. Dr. Thorsten Ackemann, U of Strathclyde, UK - Prof. Dr. Sebastian Slama, U T bingen This seminar has been postponed from June 2020 to June 2021 due to the corona pandemic. It will be held online via MeetAnyway. Collective, non-linear dynamics and spontaneous self-organization are abundant in nature, sciences and technology. These processes are found in biology and chemistry, in non-linear optics and condensed matter physics, and across both the classical and the quantum regime. The understanding of such dynamics is important for fundamental sciences, where the non-equilibrium quantum dynamics is a major quest from a fundamental point of view, and for quantum technologies, with the demand for complex systems with robust quantum coherent dynamics. A promising and versatile platform to study these processes in a highly controlled way is the collective interaction of light with laser-cooled cold or quantum-degenerate matter. This experimental setting explores the innovative control of matter through optomechanical effects, identifying novel quantum phases, investigating light transport in strongly scattering and disordered systems. Additionally, it is advancing our knowledge of long-range coupled systems in the presence of noise and driving fields. This seminar focuses on collective effects and non-equilibrium quantum dynamics in systems with matter-light interaction. In addition to self-organization of matter in classical and quantized light fields, collective scattering involving coupled dipoles and finite-range interactions, via complex multi-mode light fields or via Rydberg atoms will be central topics in the workshop. The aim is to bring together the different communities working on the crucial topics of this rapidly evolving field. Each topical session is preceded by an introductory talk, followed by several invited and hot-topic talks. The poster and discussion sessions are central elements to the seminar, fostering interaction between junior and senior researchers. The conference language will be English. Although this is a virtual seminar, we will use an online platform that is designed to emulate a 'real' scientific conference as closely as possible. It allows not only for plenary sessions but also for poster sessions, and particularly encourages personal interactions during the seminar.

Join to discuss a new report exploring steps Congress and federal agencies can take to support quantum computing in the United States. About this event Quantum computers harness the powers of quantum mechanics to transcend current computational boundaries and solve certain problems better, faster, and more efficiently than classical computers. Companies are already using these systems to address optimization challenges in a variety of areas, including health care, defense, the environment, and transportation. Leadership in this technology is therefore of strategic importance to a country's economy and national security. Several governments, including China, the United Kingdom, and the EU, have announced large research programs to advance their respective positions in the field-and many are aiming to become global leaders. As such, the United States' leadership is far from guaranteed. Join the Center for Data Innovation to discuss a new report exploring steps Congress and federal agencies can take to support quantum computing in the United States. Date and Time: July 8, 2021, 12:00 AM to 1:00 PM (EDT) / 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM (CEST) Speakers: Hodan Omaar, Policy Analyst, Center for Data Innovation (moderator) Addition Speakers TBA.

The Quantum Summer Symposium (QSS) is Google Quantum AI's annual conference. It brings together experts in academia, industry and government to discuss progress in quantum computing research. This year's event is virtual. If you are interested in learning more about what we are doing, please register here and join us on July 21 and 22. Quantum computing is at an inflection point because we now have the components in hand from which to build a large fault tolerant quantum computer. The next few years our community is poised to lay the foundation for an emerging industry based on new computational capabilities. While we are working hard to demonstrate a long-lived error-corrected qubit, we are also keen to learn what can be done with near-term Noisy Intermediate-Scale Quantum (NISQ) processors. What could you do with a few hundred noisy physical qubits that cannot be done with 40 ideal simulated qubits?

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.

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.

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.

Topic abstract: One of the most promising applications for Quantum Computing, and the first to be proposed, are its applications to Quantum Chemistry. In this talk, I would like to introduce the basic algorithms of Quantum Computing applied to Chemistry and their theoretical motivation.

20 Sep - 24 Sep 2021 Where: Physikzentrum Bad Honnef Scientific organizers: Prof. Dr. Sven Gnutzmann, U Nottingham, UK - Prof. Dr. Thomas Guhr, U Duisburg?Essen - Prof. Dr. Henning Schomerus, Lancaster University, UK - Prof. Dr. Karol ?yczkowski, U Krakau, Poland Quantum chaos is a central research topic of modern quantum physics. 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. The audience combines some of his former collaborators and students, who now are main drivers of these directions, with a diverse set of younger researchers working in these fields. The conference language will be English. The Wilhelm and Else Heraeus-Foundation bears the cost of full-board accommodation for all participants.

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. The conference language will be English. The Wilhelm and Else Heraeus-Foundation bears the cost of full-board accommodation for all participants.

Quantum Communications Networks Approved 3/200 Speaker: Dr. Siddarth Joshi, Bristol University Quantum communications relies on a seemingly magical principle of entanglement of two distant particles. At Bristol University, Dr. Joshi's team have created a quantum network of eight receiver boxes at an extremely low cost. The system then uses Quantum Key Distribution which ensures that communications using the system are free from cyber attacks. Dr. Joshi will outline the design of the network and the way quantum physics technology has been developed. As the system is developed there could be the promise of secure global networks being implemented at an affordable price.

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.

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.

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.
