Quantum state tomography and quantum process tomography provide a mathematical groundwork to deduce quantum states and characterize quantum processes from measured data. However, quantum state and process tomography require an exponential number of measurements to reconstruct density or process matrix of a 2^n -dimensional system of n qubits. In this research program, we plan to investigate different approaches to develop scalable quantum tomography techniques.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your CV if you are interested in theoretical quantum physics. The successful candidate will be admitted to the graduate program at the Department of Physics at the University of Ottawa and will have the opportunity to join the theory and computation group at the National Research Council of Canada as a visiting researcher.
