Topological Matter & Quantum Computing (May 4-6, 2018)

  • Published: 2018-03-19

May 4-6, 2018

Kavli ITS, UCAS, Beijing



Recently, there have been great progresses in the theoretical understanding and experiment evidence of topological states, and Majorana zero mode, which could be used as building block of topological quantum computation.  In this workshop, some of the major players in this field will share their recent theoretical ideas and experimental progress. 


The workshop will be a kick-off event for the recently established “CAS Center for Excellence on Topological Quantum Computation”.  The speakers of the workshop will include both members of the Center who are actively working in the field and some of the top experts abroad.  There will be in-depth discussions concerning possible roadmap of particularly proposed topological quantum computing.
