Workshop Details
Shortcuts to Adiabaticity, Optimal Quantum Control, and Thermodynamics Conference
07/14/2014 - 07/18/2014
Meeting Description:

The adiabatic theorem seems to be a no-go theorem for excitation-free ultrafast processes in quantum dynamics of relevance to a great variety of fields and technologies including quantum sensing and metrology, finite-time thermodynamics, quantum simulation, and quantum computation. However, it is possible to design non-adiabatic processes that reproduce in a finite-time the same final state resulting from an adiabatic protocol. Examples of architectures where these ideas can be applied include neutral atoms and Bose-Einstein condensates, spin systems, quantum dots, and trapped ions, among others. The growing body of theoretical and experimental research in this area, spanning a range of topics including quantum control, classical dynamics, and small-system thermodynamics, is consolidating shortcuts to adiabaticity as an emergent field. This workshop is aimed at bringing together experts in non-equilibrium dynamics across different communities, encompassing Atomic, Molecular and Optical Sciences, Quantum information and Quantum Technologies, and Statistical mechanics.


This workshop is aimed at having an interdisciplinary meeting that brings together researchers in different fields to explore the
new, exciting, open questions, by stirring different disciplines. The time slot for each speaker is about one hour including 20-30 minutes interactive discussions with the audience. The program through a week is usually not fully occupied and allows the participants to exchange ideas in
more detail and think about new possible collaborations during the meeting.

If you are interested in attending a meeting, but have not received an invitation, please contact the workshop organizer about availability before registering. Most TSRC meetings are very small, typically only about 25 people. If you have registered for a meeting you were no invited to, you may be subject to a $100 fee.
