The Quantum Information and Device Theory group of Charles Tahan at the Laboratory for Physical Sciences (LPS) and the Quantum Information and Many-Body Physics group of Brian Swingle at the University of Maryland (UMD) are collaborating to explore the possible quantum advantage offered by near-term quantum systems from quantum computers with dozens or hundreds of qubits to analog quantum systems of similar size to tensor-network inspired machine learning.

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in Prof. X. Hu's theory group working on solid state quantum computing at University at Buffalo. The nominal starting time is September 2014, although earlier starting time may be possible. Current research interests within the group include dynamics, entanglement, decoherence, and communication of multi-qubit systems. For more information please check out the group website at http://www.physics.buffalo.edu/xhu/.
The Diamond Nanoscience group is based in the Department of Physics and Astronomy of Macquarie University, close to Sydney. We are part of the Centre of Excellence for Engineered Quantum Systems. The group involves cross-disciplinary research activity including the growth and the post-processing of nanodiamonds for their application in emerging fields of single particle probing, of magnetic nanosensors and microscopy. The studies undertaken include the use of fundamental quantum optics experiments, material science experiments and a combination of chemical physics approaches.
The silicon quantum computing group involves both experiments and theory related to silicon quantum dot spin qubits. The dots are fabricated in top-gated silicon-germanium heterostructures, grown and measured in our laboratory. Areas of interest include quantum information, quantum dot transport and coherence, and valley splitting. PIs include Mark Eriksson, Max Lagally, Don Savage, Robert Blick, Susan Coppersmith, Robert Joynt, and Mark Friesen.
