One day workshop in Sheffield on quantum technologies. We have experts from Yorkshire and beyond speaking on how quantum physics can be harnessed for high-performance computing, cryptography, gravitational sensing, optical imaging, and more. The last year has seen a surge of interest and investment in quantum technologies, and this workshop will survey these topics with emphasis on research happening regionally. QuTe is organized by post-graduate researchers from Sheffield Physics. Attendance is free, but prompt registration is required to arrange catering.
