The next Q+ Hangout is on the 10th of December!

As usual, if you are watching with a group and want to reserve a seat in the hangout then leave a comment on the event page:

We also encourage individuals interested in active participation---which typically involves asking questions after the talk---to join the hangout. Otherwise you can watch on the livestream. Details follow.

Prof. Xiaodi Wu in the Department of Computer and Information Science at the University of Oregon is seeking motivated Phd students in the area of quantum information and computation. Prof. Wu’s current research focus includes quantum computational complexity, Hamiltonian complexity, as well as quantum cryptography. More information about his research can be found at here.

Dear Quantiki Users,

You may be aware that numerous changes to the website have occurred over the last few weeks. In order to ensure the site serves the quantum information community as intended, we would like to collect feedback on the changes.

Not only will this allow for us to alter any features that may have become difficult to use due to the transition, but it will also allow us to get an idea of what you might like to see in the future of the website.

Applications are invited for full-time Resident Academic Posts in the Department of Physics in the
Faculty of Science of the University of Malta. The appointments will be on an indefinite basis, subject
to a one-year probationary period, up to statutory retirement age.

Application deadline: 
Thursday, November 19, 2015

The quest to create complex synthetic quantum systems from the bottom up is currently one of the most active and exciting areas of physics. It promises the ability to study new and advanced quantum mechanical effects for fundamental science and applications in quantum engineering. Typical experimental systems in this area are cold atoms and ions, nano-resonators, semiconductor quantum dots or superconducting quantum interference devices, with new and exciting ones added regularly. All of these allow large experimental control and detailed theoretical understanding.


A few new features and configurations have been added to the site today:

  • Editing wiki articles for all registered users
  • User biographies (may import old bios from legacy site at later date)
  • Site contact form
  • Full content bubbles for markers on the group map

Features which are currently being tested/considered:
