Welcome to Quantiki

Welcome to Quantiki, the world's leading social portal for everyone involved in quantum information science. No matter if you are a researcher, a student or a fan of quantum theory, this is the place you are going to find useful and enjoyable! While here on Quantiki you can: browse our content, including fascinating and educative articles, then create your own account and log in to gain more editorial possibilities.

Add new content, such as information about upcoming quantum events, open positions for quantum scientists and existing quantum research groups. We also encourage to follow us using social media sites.

Come and join us in our explorations at the intersection of nanophysics and quantum optics. Our main focus is currently in optomechanics. This new field studies the interaction of light and nanomechanical motion.

Recent breakthrough experiments (2011) have laser-cooled a nanomechanical resonator into its ground state of mechanical motion for the first time. This opens the door towards quantum optomechanical circuits, many-body physics, potential applications in ultrasensitive measurements, quantum information, and fundamental tests of quantum mechanics.

CIFAR’s Nanoelectronics Program is seeking an outstanding postdoctoral researcher to fill a Junior Fellowship position beginning in or after September 2012 to work on the theory of quantum optomechanical systems based on superconducting microwave circuits and superconducting qubits. The successful candidate will work with the groups of Prof. Alexandre Blais at Universite de Sherbrooke (Sherbrooke, Quebec), and Prof. Aashish Clerk at McGill University (Montreal, Quebec) under joint supervision.

Up to 3 PhD positions will be awarded within the School of Mathematics and Physics, Queen's University Belfast. The Quantum Technology group at Queen's (Gabriele De Chiara and Mauro Paternostro) have put forward a project for students interested in working on quantum information processing, quantum statistical mechanics and quantum many-body systems.

The studentships will cover fees and maintenance for UK residents (fees only for EU citizens). IMPORTANT: the positions will have to be filled by 1st of January 2012 at latest!!

Here comes another round of attractive opportunities from the University of Nottingham: This is your chance to get a two-year PostDoctoral Fellowship (with flexible conditions, research expenses and support for childcare) to join the dynamic and young Quantum Information group in the School of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Nottingham (Dr G. Adesso, Dr I. Fuentes, Dr M. Guta).

Following on from the success of last year’s event, the aim of the colloquium is to showcase recent research in quantum algorithms. We will have five excellent speakers
• Scott Aaronson (MIT)
• Matty Hoban (Oxford)
• Ashley Montanaro (University of Cambridge)
• Martin Roetteler (NEC labs, Princeton)
• Miklos Santha (LIAFA, Paris)
There is no conference fee but we ask people to register if they would like to come. We may be able to offer travel support to UK based PhD students who are unable to find funding from their home institutions.
