Event details

A look at the development and potential application of Quantum Technologies

Quantum mechanics has led to a deep and profound understanding of the electronic and optical properties of materials, which has underpinned the technological revolution of the past century. Yet, there are key elements of quantum mechanics, specifically ideas such as 'coherent superposition' and 'entanglement', which have still to be harnessed directly in a technological application. With our improving ability to control smaller and smaller devices, with ever greater precision, we begin to enter a regime where such concepts can evolve from abstract 'thought experiments' to phenomena exhibited by real devices. Sufficiently controlled, superposition and entanglement will enable a new set of technologies - termed Quantum Technologies (QTs) - which offer major and fundamental improvements over certain existing technologies. Examples include ultimately secure communication, enhanced sensors, and 'quantum'.

Speaker information

Dr. Feras Alkhalil,teaches the semiconductor devices course at USMC. After completing a BSc degree in Electronic Engineering from Mutah University in Jordan, Feras came to ECS, Southampton in 2008 and read for an MSc in Microelectronics System Design. He studied for a PhD in the Nano Research Group in ECS from 2009-2013, under the supervision of Prof. Hiroshi Mizuta, investigating intrinsic and phosphorus-doped Silicon quantum dots for quantum information processing applications.
