As part of the “Surrey Sevens for 2014” programme we will be holding a workshop on Quantum Technologies on Friday 21 February 2014. The aim of the workshop is to explore possible responses to the upcoming EPSRC call (expected in February), and to cement regional networks to form a "hub and spokes".

Register for this event using the online registration form.

The aim of the meeting is to gather showcase regional strengths in Quantum Technologies and cement research collaboration networks in this area. In this context, Quantum Technologies means those that utilise superposition states: quantum cryptography; quantum computing; quantum metrology; quantum sensors and quantum simulation. The talks will be aimed in particular at setting work in the context of eventual applications, and laying down the challenges. A highlight of workshop will will be the keynote talk by Dr John Morton of UCL on silicon impurity qubits, followed by a Panel Discussion on the future of quantum technologies. Attendance from outside the region is very welcome.


The workshop will take place in the Ivy Arts Centre (IAC on the campus map).
