About This PhD Project

Project Description

Computers become faster every year, but the number of steps in a given calculation remains the same. By contrast, quantum computers can achieve a spectacular speedup by reducing the number of steps in the computation, thus promising a fundamental change in computing and its applications. One possible quantum computer design is so-called measurement-based quantum computing, in which the computation proceeds via successive measurements on a large entangled resource called a cluster state. In this theoretical physics project, you will study how to create such resource states efficiently and with a minimal amount of noise in a variety of physical systems. I am looking for an enthusiastic student with a theoretical physics or mathematics degree and a good fourth year undergraduate-level understanding of quantum mechanics. For more information, see
