Frederick Strauch: Publishes Paper "Parallel State Transfer and Efficient Quantum Routing on Quantum Networks"

Posted Jan. 3, 2011: Frederick Strauch, Assistant Professor of Physics, and Chris Chudzicki ’10 published a paper describing a new theoretical analysis of the routing of information in quantum networks.  Inspired by recent experiments on superconducting circuits, they discovered that certain networks of quantum oscillators can be used to route entanglement robustly and with optimal efficiency.  This work was based on Chudzicki’s senior thesis, for which he received a LeRoy Apker Award from the American Physical Society, and was supported by a grant from the Research Corporation.   The paper, “Parallel State Transfer and Efficient Quantum Routing on Quantum Networks,” was published in Physical Review Letters (PRL 105, 260501 (2010)), a prestigious international journal reserved for rapid publication of significant fundamental physics research.
