Quantum Science Seminar

30 April 2020
from 17:00 CEST

New weekly seminar on Quantum Science for an international audience oferring an overview on the latest results in QST research.


Address / Location

Youtube Live Stream



Due to the COVID-19 pandemic summer conferences covering all research fields will likely be canceled or significantly delayed. In order to stay in touch with the recent developments in Quantum Science a group of international researchers are organzing this new online seminar series. The Quantum Science Seminars aim to offer an overview on latest results in a weekly frequency.

What is it?

A weekly seminar on Quantum Science for an international audience that is broadcast via live streaming.
You should not miss out on hearing about the latest results even if all major conferences are cancelled.

When and where?

The seminar starts every Thursday at 17:00 CEST (Central European Summer Time) and is live-streamed on the series' youtube channel.

Who is this for?

The aim is to find speakers who give great talks to broad audiences. If you are a graduate student or research scientist and think that your work is related to “quantum science,” then these talks are for you.

What’s the format?

The presentations will last for 45 minutes with an extra 15 minutes for questions. There will be a break for questions roughly half way through the talk and ask the remaining questions at the end of the talk. You can submit a question for the speaker via email to quantumscienceseminar@gmail.com. Questions will be answered on a first-come, first-served basis as time allows.


Quantum Science Seminar #1: Quantum Simulation | 16.04.2020

J. Ignacio Cirac | Max-Planck-Institute of Quantum Optics (MPQ)

Analog Quantum Simulation: from physics to chemistry
Many-body systems are very hard to simulate due to the explosion of parameters with the system size. Quantum computers can help in this task, although one may need scalable systems, something that is out of reach in the short run. An attractive alternative is provided by analog quantum simulators which, even though they are not universal, they can still be tuned to study interesting problems. Atoms in optical lattices seem to be ideally suited for that task. Most of the proposals of such simulators have focused so far on condensed matter or high energy physics problems. In this talk I will show how one can extend the range of problems to other scenarios, especially to quantum chemistry.

Quantum Science Seminar #2: Quantum Computing | on 23.04.2020

Roee Ozeri | Weizmann Institute of Science
Trapped-ion quantum computing: a coherent control problem

Darrick Chang | Institute of Photonic Sciences (ICFO)
The maximum refractive index of an atomic medium

Other confirmed speakers include:

  • Jacqueline Bloch
