Argonne National Labs is having an NST Colloquium on Crafting Light at the Nanoscale with 2-D materials and metasurfaces tomorrow, March 20, 2019 at 11am CT. Speaker is Alexander High, Institute for Molecular Engineering, University of Chicago. The search for new materials (nanomaterials) and the use of meta-surfaces (carving very shallow shapes on a silver film) to help create highly reflective, switchable mirrors should help with optics, networking and ultimately, quantum computing systems.
These new materials and methods could potentially create a dramatic improvement in commercially available computing systems for our clients. Keep up the good work Professor High!
Looks like a good conference in Florence, Italy for Quantum Computing. https://www.date-conference.com/conference/workshop-w08. Organized by Ali Javadi, IBM in the US. Looks like a good session for a consultant...it focuses on the role a computer scientist can play in quantum computing research. EPiQC is an NSF Expedition in Computing. The education session is hosted here at https://www.epiqc.cs.uchicago.edu/tutorial
I will find out more and post it here. Hope to see you there (possibly only online though...flights to Italy can be expensive).
10th International School ad Conference on Spintronics and Quantum Information Technology. June 24-27, Chicago IL. Hotel Intercontinental, 505 N. Michigan Ave. Chair is David Awschalom (whom I have met and enjoy listening to), and co-Chair is Michael Flatte' whom I look forward to meeting.
Pretty deep technical content (e.g., spintronic materials, structures and devices). Global, academic speakers list. First part of the conference is an orientation to the topic, followed by a working session aimed to stimulate progress. I may ask to present any early findings from US Advanced Computing Infrastructure, Inc.
Early registration is $600.
