School and Workshop on Driven Quantum SystemsICTP

School, Nov. 21-26, 2016

It will be held during the first week of the activity.  The purpose of the school is to bring together young researchers with specialists working on the physics of driven quantum systems. Lecturers:

  • P. Hänggi (Univ. Augsburg, Germany): Floquet Theory for driven dissipative systems

  • J. Moore (Univ. of California, USA): Topological Insulators and Floquet TIs 

  • P. Zoller (Univ. of Innsbruck, Austria): Quantum Optics of Many-Body Systems

  • F. Schmidt-Kaler (Univ. Mainz, Germany): Experiments with cold ion crystals

  • M. Rudner (Niels Bohr Institute, Denmark): Floquet topological insulators

  • J. Petta (Princeton Univ., USA): Spin dynamics in quantum dots and quantum wires

  • D. Esteve (CEA-Saclay, France): Superconducting Qubits

  • L. Kouwenhoven (TUDelft, Netherlands): Majorana fermions

Workshop, Nov. 28 – Dec. 2, 2016

The activity will highlight recent experimental and theoretical results at the forefront of international research on driven quantum systems, including, but not limited to, the following topics:

  • Cold atoms

  • Driven topological insulators and graphene

  • Irradiated superconductors
  • Quantum optics.
  • Adiabatic quantum computing. Quantum Memories.
  • Quantum control of driven solid state qubits (quantum dots, superconducting qubits).
