Dr. Christine Corbett Moran travels the world in search of challenging problems to solve. The National Science Foundation’s Astronomy and Astrophysics Postdoctoral Fellow at the California Institute of Technology earned a PhD in Zurich, taught mobile development and entrepreneurship in Manila, and now calls Antarctica home while conducting experiments on the South Pole Telescope. It’s […]
This week I had the opportunity to return to the University of Waterloo, where I had been a visiting scholar while I was a PhD student at MIT, to participate in the Undergraduate School on Experimental Quantum Information Processing program (USEQIP), a unique two-week workshop at the university’s Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC). The program […]
Computation, or information processing, has become ubiquitous in our society. Everywhere you look it has an impact on our lives, from making everyday tasks such as communicating easier, to opening new avenues of exploration, and allowing us to solve problems we would never have dreamed possible. Computation, as is generally contained in your phone, or […]
Our team at the Thomas J Watson Research Center published results in the paper Implementing a strand of a scalable fault-tolerant quantum computing fabric in Nature Communications (1) about recent experimental steps toward a “surface code” that shows promise for correcting these errors – and bringing fault-tolerant quantum computers a step closer to reality.
