Quantum Computing with Neutral Atoms
April 7 (Thursday), 2022
11:30 am to 12:30 pm (EDT)
Virtual via Zoom
Abstract: Atom Computing is creating a quantum processing platform based on nuclear spin qubits. The system makes use of optical tweezers to assemble and individually manipulate a two-dimensional register. Dr. Pudenz will explore progress on the Phoenix hardware platform and the potential of the technology to create scalable quantum computing solutions.
Biography: Dr. Kristen Pudenz is a Principal Quantum Scientist at Atom Computing, guiding hardware maturation toward practical quantum applications objectives. Previously she was Corporate Lead for Quantum at Lockheed Martin, setting the vision and advocating for quantum programs across the corporation. Kristen received her electrical engineering Ph.D. from the University of Southern California, where, she pioneered Quantum Annealing Correction, a novel and highly practical error correction technique.
