4. DIVERSITY TIP OF THE WEEK: Rise Above Silence -- Adapted from Diversity Tip published in Feb. 2013

Event Type(s): Other,Diversity

Greeting people is a small gesture that makes a big difference. When walking into the office or passing a familiar (or even, unfamiliar) face in the hallway, saying "Good Morning" or "Hello" is the basic ingredient of building a community at Maryland. Though it seems obvious, we often walk by people we see regularly without saying a word. Perhaps we do not wish to intrude, interrupt, or we feel awkward. Regardless of the reason, a greeting conveys respect and kindness' more is always better. Most people will respond with a warm greeting in return. As we begin the 2014-15 school year, let's work collectively to develop new norms around greeting and welcoming each other.

8. (PHYSICS COLLOQUIUM) Validation of Quantum Devices: From Quantum Random Numbers to the D-Wave Devices

When: Tuesday, September 02, 2014 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Where: Physics : Physical Sciences Complex Lobby : PSC Lobby
Event Type(s): Colloquium

About a century after the development of quantum mechanics we have now reached an exciting time where non-trivial devices that make use of quantum effects can be built. While a universal quantum computer of non-trivial size is still out of reach there are a number commercial and experimental devices: quantum random number generators, quantum encryption systems, and analog quantum simulators. In this colloquium Matthias Troyer, ETH Zurich, will present some of these devices and validation tests we performed on them. Quantum random number generators use the inherent randomness in quantum measurements to produce true random numbers, unlike classical pseudorandom number generators which are inherently deterministic. Optical lattice emulators use ultracold atomic gases in optical lattices to mimic typical models of condensed matter physics.
