Conference on Advanced Materials for Quantum Technology

Acronym: 
AMQT
Dates: 
Sunday, April 26, 2015

Advanced materials and quantum technology are areas of significant strength and recent investment within the UK. The Advanced Materials for Quantum Technology workshop will
build on this momentum to provide a forum for researchers in both fields to come together to discuss recent progress and future research strategy. It will consist of a series of invited
presentations given by scientists at the forefront of Materials Science and Quantum Technology, along with a poster session to encourage contributions from early career researchers.

Subjects to be covered include (but are not limited to): two-dimensional materials, semiconductor quantum dots, molecular magnets, superconducting devices, Rydberg states, coherent control of electron and nuclear spins, materials growth and characterisation, and the theory of solid-state qubits and decoherence.

Invited speakers include:
