A new era of quantum technologies with ground breaking capabilities is emerging. The global race to build quantum computers is heating up. Around the world, governments and corporations are accelerating their investments in science and engineering research for quantum computers, quantum communications systems, and other quantum technologies. Supremacy in quantum science and technology is recognised as critical for national security and economic growth into the future. A ‘quantum race’ is upon us.
Professor Akira Furusawa is one of the world’s leading quantum scientists. Professor Furusawa received his Ms Degree in applied physics and Ph.D. Degree in physical chemistry from The University of Tokyo, Japan, in 1986, and 1991, respectively. His pioneering work on quantum optical teleportation is now revolutionising the development of quantum computers. In this Public Lecture, Professor Furusawa will describe how teleportation is being used to enable a new generation of large-scale quantum computer experiments.
