QES Seminar 4/21/2011 - The Design and Function of Quantum Information Processors, Prof. David Cory, University of Waterloo, Canada

Quantum information theory provides a new framework for the development of sensors and actuators that rely on quantum dynamics to obtain efficiencies beyond their classical counterparts.  Today we can build laboratory examples of small quantum devices from spin systems, optics, superconducting systems and even neutron beams.  I will introduce some of the concepts underlying these devices.  In particular showing simple schemes for improving device performance via quantum engineering.
