Quantum for Plasmas & Plasmas for Quantum – Marija Vranic

Zoom video conferencing

A recent report of the United States Department of Energy “Quantum for Fusion, Fusion for Quantum” has highlighted several opportunities for scientific discovery and technology advances at the interface of quantum computing and quantum technologies with fusion and plasma physics.

With the goal of fostering and promoting the dialogue across these two areas and to promote the interdisciplinary interaction between the researchers working in these fields, the Group of Lasers and Plasmas (GoLP) at Institute for Plasmas and Nuclear Fusion (IPFN), and the Physics of Information and Quantum Technologies Group at Instituto de Telecomunicações (IT) will host a series of monthly discussion sessions on Quantum for Plasmas & Plasmas for Quantum (<qp|pq>).

Everyone is welcomed to attend (registration required). Each session will include a summary or review talk of 30 minutes followed by a discussion of 30 minutes. The discussion sessions will run once per month, and will be hosted by Técnico Professors Yasser Omar (DM/IST & IT) and Luís Oliveira e Silva (GoLP/IPFN/IST).
