  • Norwegian Academy of Technological Sciences gets a visit
    It was a true pleasure when the Hub was contacted by Arnstein Wee, from the Stavanger-branch of Norges tekniske vitenskapsakademi, the Norwegian Academy of Technological Sciences. He wanted to hear more about quantum computing. Of course, asking a quantum hubber whether she or he would like to talk quantum, is a bit like asking “is …
  • Seminar: Perdo Ribeiro
    It is a pleasure to invite to this years first Quantum seminar. Perdo Ribero from the University of Lisbon is presently our guest at the Hub. Upcoming Monday, the 22nd, he will tell us a bit about one of his research interests, namely Random matrices on dissipative quantum dynamics Time and place: Room PS523 in …
  • Quantum jumps at Holmenkollen
    November 7th to 9th we had the pleasure of hosting a November School on Quantum Computing. At the risk of appearing cocky: Beforehand we were very proud of the program we had put together. And the lecturers did not let us down! Several aspects of quantum computing were addressed. To name a few: The lecturers …
  • Seminar: Black Hole Entropy
    Our visiting researcher Maksym Teslyk is presenting work which is part of his Ph.D. dissertation. It relates to both classical and quantum physical information theory and to general relativity. The picture is Kip Thorne’s black hole visualization from the movie Interstellar. Abstract: A spherical system of mass M is represented as a set of Unruh horizons. The approach …
  • Seminar: Quantum Software Engineering
    Tuesday Nov. 17th we have the pleasure of hearing Noah Oldfield, from Simula Research Lab, presenting results and research question related to his ongoing project. It involves software testing on actual quantum computers. See the abstract below for more details. Quantum program outputs enable the development of unique quality assurance techniques. Our research focuses on …
  • Seminar: Markus Penz
    Sobolev space formulation of density-functional theory: Solving the v-representability problem. 14th September 13:00, room PS340, building P35. Density-functional theory is one of the principal methods in physics, chemistry and materials science used for calculating properties of many-body systems based on their electronic structure. It rests on a reformulation of the explicit energy expression in terms …
  • Visitors from Equinor
    August 7th we had the pleasure of welcoming researchers from Equinor to our hub. A group of strong researchers, including mathematicians, physicists and software engineers, have spent significant time and effort looking into the quantum opportunities for their company. The Hub’s own Aleksandar Davidov shared promising results on quantum boosted predictions and optimization for Ruter …
  • Seminar: Justin Wells
    Monday May 19th we had the pleasure of having Justin Wells visiting our hub. He gave a very interesting presentation on his work within experimental condensed matter physics. It spent quite widely – ranging from implementing qubits in silicon to magnetic properties – and how they are related to ducklings. Despite this rather wide scope, …
  • Seminar: Tanner Culpitt
    Friday June 9th 2023 we had the pleasure of listening to Tanner Culpitt, postdoc at the Hylleraas Centre, giving a presentation entitled Electronic Structure and Molecular Dynamics in a Strong Magnetic Field. In addition to outlining how such systems can be studied non-perturbatively, he also shared ideas on how quantum computers may be useful in …
  • Seminar: Kishore Thapliyal
    Friday 26th of May Kishore Thapliyal, from Palacky University, Olomouc, Czecch Republic, will visit the Quantum Hub and tell us about his work on secure quantum computation. Title and abstract: Experimental generation of engineered multi-mode quantum states to use in secure quantum computation  The idea of secure multiparty computation will be briefly reviewed. With the …
  • Seminar: No need for a grid
    It was our pleasure to invite you all to an interesting seminar by Simen Kvaal from University of Oslo. Simen is a quantum physicist with the Hylleraas centre at the Department of Chemistry, UiO. The title of his talk is “No need for a grid: Gaussians for the time-dependent Schrödinger equation”. Read more about it …
  • PASQAL presents quantum
    Dear all, Tuesday April 18th we will have the pleasure of having Aleksander Wennersteen PASQAL visiting us. PASQAL is a company that develops quantum computers. One of its founders is Alain Aspects, one of last year’s recipients of the Nobel prize in physics, which was awarded for experiments with entangled photons, establishing the violation of …
  • Seminar: Quantum dynamics
    We are pleased to invite you to listen to and talk with Stefanos Carlström from Lund University, who is going to present his work on Mathematical methods for high-dimensional physics; atoms and molecules in strong laser fields. This invite goes out to the Dept. of Computer Science – and a few other colleges for whom …
  • QCNorway: The need for a Norwegian quantum strategy
    November 7th and 8th, 2022, jointly with Simula, Sigma 2 and Sintef, OsloMet organized a workshop in order to highlight and emphasize the need to establish a Norwegian strategy when it comes to quantum computing. Website: https://www.qcnorway.no/ The workshop featured contributions from several notable experts in the field of quantum computing and more than 80 …
