The Department of Physics, National Institute of Technology (NIT), Sikkim is organizing a TEQIP-III Sponsored Online Faculty Development Program on Quantum Information and Computation from October 5 to 17, 2020.
The National Institute of Technology Sikkim is an institution set up by an Act of Parliament in the year 2009 as a part of the 11th Five-year Plan to impart high-quality technical education and to carry out research and development in the field of science and technology in the state of Sikkim.
The Institute has also been accorded the status of an institute of national importance by the Government of India keeping in view the role of the organization in developing highly skilled personnel in the field of science and technology. NIT Sikkim, since its inception, has been functioning at Ravangla, South Sikkim.
Quantum information and computation is one of the most important areas of research in the present age. The subject stands at the crossroads of physics, computer science, and mathematics. The workshop aims to provide, students, teachers, and researchers working in diverse fields of physics, computer science, and mathematics, an introduction to various topics in the field of quantum information and computation, both theoretical and experimental.
The discourse has been conceived to be at the level of “the theoretical minimum”, for the chosen topic. The purpose of the workshop is to provide the participants with an idea about the wide scope of the field of quantum information and computation.
The following topics are likely to be covered:
- Quantum mechanics (primer)
- Fundamental aspects of quantum theory and quantum information
- Bipartite and multipartite quantum systems: Entanglement
- Quantum communication
- Quantum cryptography
- Open quantum systems
- Quantum error correction
- Many-body physics and quantum information
- Measurement-based quantum computation and topological quantum codes
- Experimental realizations using NMR
- Experimental realizations using ultracold gases
- Superconducting quantum circuits
Who can Attend?
Students, teachers and researchers working in the fields of physics, computer science and mathematics are invited to apply.
