Summary on Grant Application Form
The IRC will bring together a multidisciplinary team of researchers in the UK to address key challenges in quantum information processing. The theoretical studies will range from the most fundamental concepts of QIP to theoretical analysis of how QIP can be implemented in practice, together with modelling of specific experimental configurations. The experimental research will focus on the interaction between static and flying qubits, something that will be crucial for successful exploitation of QIP. Ways will be sought to enhance the inherently weak interaction between photons and static qubits in microcavities and arrays, and to implement photon-photon entanglement via conditional detection. Information transfer in ionic and atomic systems will be studied. Electrons in solids will be investigated as candidate short range flying qubits.
