Introduction to Quantum Information Processing and Its Physical Implementations

Speaker: Professor Kishor Kapale
Date: September 10, 2010 (Friday)
Time: 4 PM
Room: 205 Currens Hall


I will give a very basic introduction to the paradigms of quantum information processing without assuming any knowledge of the subject. Further, I will discuss strategies for realistic physical implementations of quantum information processing tasks. I will also mention some of my own research in the quantum information and related areas towards the end.
