Bringing the quantum nanoscience community together


There are many conferences that cover subfields of this research area but as far as the organizers know, there is currently no conference that attempts to bring this broader community under one roof. We hope to bring together experts and young scientists from all around the globe in this exciting research topic.

The Center for Quantum Nanoscience has strong expertise in investigating, assembling and controlling quantum systems at surfaces – a relatively new topic in quantum nanoscience. Therefore, we feel that this location might be a good seed to create a long-lasting international conference on quantum nanoscience.

Session 1: What is Quantum Nanoscience?


Quantum nanoscience is the intersection of quantum science and nanoscience. In this session, we will describe a working definition as well as interesting concepts and examples of quantum systems at the nanoscale that enable quantum-coherent functionality.

Prof. Andreas Heinrich, Director of IBS Center for Quantum Nanoscience, Seoul, South Korea
“What is Quantum Nanoscience?”

Prof. William D. Oliver, MIT Department of Physics and Director at MIT Lincoln Laboratory, Boston, USA
“Quantum Nanoscience and Engineering of Superconducting Qubits”

Prof. Andrew Dzurak, School of Electrical Engineering and Telecommunications, UNSW, Australia
“Silicon-based quantum computing: The path from the laboratory to industrial manufacture”

Yonuk Chong, University of Science and Technology(UST), South Korea
"Brief summary of the quantum computing strategic planning 2017-2018, and quantum computing research program in Korea 2019"

Session 2: Quantum Sensing with Nanoscale Systems


Quantum systems can make incredibly sensitive sensors of their environment. At the nanoscale this can be combined with high spatial resolution.

Prof. Ania Jayich, Department of Physics, UCSB, USA
“Nitrogen-vacancy center spins in diamond for quantum technologies: progress and challenges”

Prof. Jörg Wrachtrup, Physics Department of University of Stuttgart, Germany
“Analyzing chemical and structural composition by nanoscale NMR”

Prof. Donghun Lee, Physics Department of Korea University, Seoul, South Korea
“Sensing strain and magnetic field with quantum point defects”

Session 3: Theory Challenges in Quantum Nanoscience


Quantum Nanoscience has diverse needs for theoretical investigations ranging from modelling with high precision to the investigation and understanding of quantum coherence.

Prof. Daniel Loss, Department of Physics, University of Basel, Switzerland
“Ge and Si Nanowires: New Platforms for Spin and Majorana Qubits”

Prof. Jelena Klinovaja, Department of Physics, University of Basel, Switzerland
“Second Order Topological Superconductivity in π-Junction Rashba Layers”

Martin Plenio - Institute of Theoretical Physics in University of Ulm, Germany
“Quantum Control of Quantum Systems on the Nanoscale”

Session 4: Quantum Surface Science at the Nanoscale


Surfaces of materials offer the opportunity to use scanning probe techniques to measure their properties. This can be combined with atomic-scale manipulation to build structures with atomic-scale precision. Recently it has become possible to perform quantum-coherent manipulation of atoms on surfaces.

Prof. Taeyoung Choi, Center for Quantum Nanoscience and Department of Physics at Ewha, Seoul, South Korea
“Quantum surface science at Nanoscale”

Prof. Fabio Donati, Center for Quantum Nanoscience and Department of Physics at Ewha, Seoul, South Korea
“Probing the magnetism of single atoms with orbital sensitivity”

Prof. Harald Brune, Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne, Lausanne, Switzerland
“Hyperfine Interactions and Intra-atomic Spin Excitations in Single Atom Magnets”

Session 5: A Chemical Route to Quantum Nanoscience


We will explore possible pathways from quantum coherent effects in interesting molecules to the future dream of self-assembled quantum computers.

Prof. Roberta Sessoli, Department of Chemistry, University of Florence, Italy
“Magnetic molecules for the second quantum revolution: potential and challenge”

Prof. Wolfgang Wernsdorfer, Department of Physics, KIT Karlsruhe, Germany

Location

This is a very central location in Korea, only about 1 hour from the international airport in Incheon. Incheon airport has excellent connection to almost all parts of the world.
Ewha Womans University has a beautiful campus that is centrally located in the capital city of South Korea. It offers interesting architecture, green spaces and great facilities to hold a conference.
The weather at the end of September is usually very nice with temperatures in the mid 20s, plenty of sunshine and relatively low humidity.
