Engaging in Quantum Memories
Whilst there have been demonstrations of quantum secure communications, the limitation of decoherence over long distances proves to be one of the major challenges facing this field. Quantum memories are proposed to be a solution to this, removing one of the main bottlenecks in the creation of quantum repeaters. They also have the ability to help create practical quantum computers, by increasing the time qubits can be worked on and allowing distributed quantum computing to exist.
About the event
This event looks at encouraging new interest and collaborations in this field, particularly from the photonics and telecoms industries. It will do this by highlighting the current ways to achieving quantum memories, and why certain approaches are more suitable depending on their environment. It will also provide examples of how to get involved in this technology.
Why should you attend this event?
- To learn about the current approaches to quantum memories
- Learn of an available funding opportunity
- Learn about how quantum memories are crucial for certain sectors
Who should attend this event?
- Anyone who is contributing to the quantum memory industry
- Anyone who has a potential interest in commercialising quantum memories
- Anyone who works for photonics and communications companies
- Quantum computing and networking companies
