Quantum Information Technologies in Louisiana Day

Ryan Glasser of Tulane, Mark Wilde of LSU, and Peter Bierhorst of UNO, are excited to announce the fifth QuILT (Quantum Information Technologies in Louisiana) day, which will take place at the Tulane University on Thursday, November 14, 2019. All lectures will be held in the Diboll Gallery of the new Commons building (room 300) until 3pm, and in Lindy Boggs Hall room 122 after 3pm.

Researchers from around Louisiana and surrounding areas will be joining together for a day of quantum information (and related!) presentations, with the goal of fostering future collaborations, and expanding Louisiana's research effort in quantum sciences and technology.

We look forward to seeing you there!

We are also happy to announce the newly-developed Louisiana Quantum Initiative! The Louisiana Quantum Initiative is the statewide endeavor to advance the research and technology of quantum systems, particularly toward evolving the second quantum revolution, developing the strategy and technological infrastructure of quantum-driven networks and devices. The constellation of scientists in the initiative comprises researchers from all over the state, from both public and private institutions. The Initiative is an ecosystem of research, relying on emergent, dynamic associations and efforts among institutions and members. Please find more information about it here.

Information regarding past QuILT Days can be found here: QuILT Day 1, QuILT Day 2, QuILT Day 3, QuILT Day 4. Be sure to check out the article that LSU wrote about QuILT Day as well!
