"Quantum computing and topological codes using continuous variables"
ABSTRACT:

Continuous-variable (CV) approaches to quantum computing have certain advantages over standard qubit-based approaches. The most striking of these is the ability to make extremely large resource states for measurement-based quantum computing using small optical setups. Furthermore, local measurements on one of these states will transform it into a CV version of a topological quantum code, which has potential applications in condensed-matter theory, anonymous broadcasting, and quantum error correction. My talk will discuss the latest theoretical and experimental developments in this research area.

"Target and Polarimetry studies for GEn and An1 experiments at JLab"
ABSTRACT:

An upcoming measurement at Jefferson Laboratory (JLab) of the electric form factor of the neutron (GEn) will utilize a polarized 3He target at high luminosity. While polarized 3He targets at JLab have previously been made entirely of glass, we describe progress toward six liter, convection style target cells incorporating metal windows for the electron beam. We have found good performance by using Oxygen Free High Conductivity (OFHC) copper substrates electroplated with gold. We have further established that Uranium glass (Canary glass) has excellent spin-relaxation properties, and can serve as a transition glass from Pyrex to Aluminosilicate glass (GE180). We also present polarimetry results of our first production, “Stage 1”, all-glass target cell that is to be used in the measurement of the virtual photon spin asymmetry of the neutron (A1n) at JLab. Further, we present preliminary results of a custom built, low noise NMR system which will be used in the precision measurement of the atomic parameter k0, which is important for the accurate understanding of the 3He polarization and which characterizes the 3He-Rb system.
