IQST Grad School Project

Optimal Quantum Engineering

Project Description:

We are building a software suite being capable of optimally controlling a wide spectrum of physical system and optimization tasks. Applications are therefore not limited to quantum information protocols, as needed for example for metrology and sensing, but also cover different branches of physics, as energy science, AMO physics, and condensed matter. Besides experimental application, theorist should benefit from this as well, as they can test and optimize various systems in the open loop optimization software. The first step towards this goal has been taken: We successfully performed, in collaboration with the group of Prof. Jelezko in Ulm, the closed loop optimization of a single qubit gate in NV, which forms a basic building block for many quantum information tasks. Further challenges including two qubit gates will be tackled in the near future.
