KDO Research Group

Quantum Circuits and Advanced Materials (QCAM)

Local Links

This group holds weekly research meetings at the LPS. It sometimes includes collaborators visiting from other parts of the nation or world.


Experimental solid-state quantum computing research is also conducted in the groups of Bruce Kane, Ben Palmer, Chris Richardson, and Bob Butera. Theoretical quantum computing research is conducted in the groups of Frank Gaitan, Ari Mizel, and Charles Tahan.


During the academic year, there is a LPS Wednesday seminar at 3:30, often covering topics on quantum information. Several special quantum computing seminars occur throughout the year, which are attended by LPS and other local researchers.

There are many other fine research groups that similarly work in condensed-matter experiments at UMCP. Some are interested in quantum information science or materials including superconductors.


The center for nanophysics and advanced materials (CNAM) organizes a student seminar 838. The physics department also hosts condensed matter physics seminars and a colloquia.
