The Quantum Pontiff

Graphene quantum dots as qubits, Quantum Zeno effect, and the APS March meeting.

  • A group in Zurich has made quantum dots in graphene and demonstrated Coulomb blockade opening up yet another material of promise for quantum dot qubits. Journal article here.
  • Lev Vaidman has an itneresting News and Views on some recent work related to the quantum Zeno effect and in particular on this recent Physical Review A article.
  • The March meeting of the APS now has its program online. The best way I can figure out of finding sessions sponsered by GQI is going to this page and searching the text of that page.

    Ah, someone else noticed that problem then too. Is it my imagination, or were you able to search by sponsoring group last year?

    I refuse to comment anymore unless you give me $100.

    You may not be aware of this, but the combined cost of reading the APL, Nature and PRA papers amounts to $66 for those without institutional access.

    So Sam should ask the authors for the $100. Oh, wait, none of that money goes to them.

    Actually, my reference was not to the cost for non-subscribers, but to the new site, quantalk.org, and $100 should be 100. :)

    Quantalk.org…have to check it out.

    I still don’t get the 100 (inser currency here)? Remember I’m an Idiot American.

    Oh, now I get it.

    A pretty comprehensive list of the quantum info events at the March meeting, arranged by session, is available at http://qserver.usc.edu/confs/ .
