Quantum Computational Advantage: Recent Progress and Next Steps

When
-

Abstract: This talk is motivated by the question: why do we put so much effort and investment into quantum computing? A short answer is that we expect quantum advantages for practical problems. To achieve this goal, it is essential to reexamine existing experiments and propose new protocols for future quantum advantage experiments.

Long-range Entanglement and Topological States in Quantum Devices: from Hamilton to Galois

When
-

Abstract: One of the most remarkable discoveries in quantum physics is that long-range entangled qubits can give rise to emergent gauge fields and collective excitations exhibiting generalized ('anyonic') exchange statistics. Despite the importance of such 'topological' states for quantum information processing, they are extremely challenging to find in materials. In this talk, we explore how novel 'bottom-up' quantum devices---built atom by atom, qubit by qubit---challenge this status quo.

Enhanced cooling and quantum control of divalent atoms for the next generation of optical lattice clocks

When
-

Abstract: Atomic clocks operating in the optical domain are now capable of measuring time at up to eighteen digits of precision, and fundamental limits offer significant potential for even higher performance. To reach this goal, the next-generation of optical lattice clocks will require more advanced control of lattice-trapped atomic samples. To this end, here we consider two novel laser cooling strategies that exploit the extensive atom-laser coherence possible with divalent atomic structure.

Gene expression quantification of single-copy genes in space and time by employing single-molecule techniques in fixed and live cells.

When
-

Abstract: Recent advances in single-molecule imaging technologies have made it possible to study gene expression dynamics at unprecedented resolution. In this talk, I will describe two projects that use this technology to visualize, quantify, and model gene expression at different levels. The first project involves the study of RNAP2 phosphorylation at a single-copy gene. Here, I combined three-color fluorescent microscopy with antibody-based probes that bind the different phosphorylated forms of endogenous RNAP2.
