Este martes 17 de octubre, a las 1:50 pm, el Prof. Leong Chuan Kwek, Director del Centre for Quantum Technologies de Singapur, dará una charla sobre tecnología cuántica en la Sala de Conferencias del tercer piso.

Título: "Exploring Mesocopic Physics with Atomtronics"

Abstract: Atomtronics is an emerging field in quantum technology that promises to realize ‘atomic circuit’ architectures exploiting ultra-cold atoms manipulated in versatile micro-optical circuits generated by laser fields of different shapes and intensities or micro-magnetic circuits known as atom chips. 

Although devising new applications for computation and information transfer is a defining goal of the field, atomtronics wants to enlarge the scope of quantum simulators and to access new physical regimes with novel fundamental science. In this talk, we survey the state of the art of atomtronics-enabled quantum technology. We also extend the scope of the existing atom-based quantum devices and to devise platforms for new routes to quantum technology.

LC Kwek is a Principal Investigator at the Center for Quantum Technologies, National University of Singapore since its inception.  He is also the Deputy Director at the Institute of Advanced Studies at the Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. He works on quantum information science and atomtronics and he has published more than 200 refereed papers on the subject.  He is an elected Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the Institute of Physics (UK) and the Institute of Physics (Singapore).  He currently serves as a council member of the Tan Kah Kee Foundation (Singapore) and IUPAP WG5 (Women in Physics).  He is also an editorial member of the Association of Asia Pacific Physical Societies Bulletin Board.  LC Kwek was a co-recipient of the Singapore National Science Award (Team) in 2006, the IPS Premier Research award (2006) and the IPS President Medal (2016). He is also very active in the local secondary school education system.
