  • ECE-EP Seminar - Karan Mehta, Wednesday, April 7th, 9am via Zoom

    Wed, Apr 07, 2021 @ 09:00 AM - 10:30 AM

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Karan Mehta, ETH Zurich

    Talk Title: Integrated photonic and atomic quantum systems

    Abstract: Practical and useful quantum information processing requires significant advances over current systems in error rates and robustness of basic operations, and at the same time in scale. The high coherence and precise control possible with trapped atomic ion qubits are promising for long-term systems, but the optics required pose a major challenge in scaling.
    Interfacing low-noise atomic qubits with scalable integrated photonics [1] is a promising route forward, enabling practical extensibility while simultaneously lending robustness to noise.
    Foundry-fabricated ion trap devices with integrated waveguide optical delivery have recently allowed us to realize multi-ion entangling quantum logic with fidelities competitive with the highest achieved across qubit platforms [2]. Aside from the stability and scalability afforded by these techniques, I will discuss how they allow generation of optical field profiles enabling new physical operations, new photonics motivated by atomic systems broadly, and additional possibilities for such techniques to advance future experiments in areas including sensing and precision metrology.

    Biography: Karan Mehta received BS. Degrees from UCLA in Physics and Electrical Engineering in 2010, and completed his PhD in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at MIT in 2017. Since 2017 he has been an ETH postdoctoral fellow and subsequently senior scientist in the Physics department at ETH Zurich since 2017. His current research interests include trapped- ion techniques, optics and integrated photonics, and quantum information.

    Viterbi School of Engineering Career Connections

    University Calendar


    *This is an external event hosted by Apple for Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science students*

    The University Recruiting team at Apple is hosting a series of online events focused on engaging and hiring students. Each day will have a different focus to allow your students to understand the Apple hiring process along with sharing their own personal stories with the team.

    Day 4: Mechanical Engineering

    If it sounds odd there are mechanical engineers who work at a computer and electronics company, then you'll be surprised! Come Hear a case study about the process and interplay between industrial design, fundamental engineering and physics.

    The event will be hosted on the Hallo platform.

  • Executive Coffee with The Walt Disney Studios

    Wed, Apr 07, 2021 @ 12:00 PM - 01:00 PM

    Computer Science

    Student Activity


    This event is hosted by the USC Entertainment Technology Center and CS students are encouraged to attend.

    The -Executive Coffee with- program at the USC Entertainment Technology Center connects USC students interested in media and entertainment issues with media & entertainment industry executives.

    It is a win-win. The students have a structured low-pressure discussion with a senior industry executive. The executive explores the perspective and ideas of students with an interest in a topic that they care about.

    Wednesday, April 7, 12:00-1:00pm

    Lead Executive: Mark Mine, Director, Technology Innovation Group at The Walt Disney Studios

    Student/Executive Discussion Topic: The Future of Immersive Media Storytelling

    What is the future of VR/AR/MR/XR/Immersive Media Storytelling? What would make a meaningful, compelling immersive experience? What would be the pros and cons of adding virtual beings, objects, and information to the world around you? What ideas do you have for gamifying everyday activities? How will immersive experiences change culture or behavioral patterns.

  • Repeating EventCP2K: Running Ab Initio Molecular Dynamics Simulations

    Wed, Apr 07, 2021 @ 04:00 PM - 06:00 PM

    Information Technology Program (ITP)

    Workshops & Infosessions


    Presented by: USC Center for Advanced Research Computing

    An introduction to computational tools implemented within the CP2K program package. The most standard methods as well as some of the more advanced features will be introduced by overviews of background theory and through examples of application, while encouraging modular, flexible, and problem-oriented thinking. Recurring topics in the workshop are the scaling of algorithms, the combination of different levels of theory and of sampling, and tools and strategies for the analysis of results. This ongoing workshop is currently running on Wednesdays during the Spring 2021 semester.
