Generation, manipulation, control, and applications of entanglement in a large network

Project: Research project

Project Details


As part of this Multidisciplinary University Research Initiative (MURI) led by Prof. Saikat Guha (The University of Arizona), the Northwestern University (NU) team will contribute primarily to the theoretical and computational study of synchronization, control, and percolation in large quantum networks. Specifically, the NU team will work closely with the collaborating institutions on three main projects: 1) Formulation and application of a system-independent characterization of quantum synchronization that can be usefully related to entanglement in large quantum networks; 2) development and application of control approaches to manipulate entanglement in large quantum networks; 3) application of state-of-the-art percolation analysis in networks with arbitrary topologies to optimize and evaluate protocols on entanglement generation and distribution under the most general network conditions. The results of this research will be disseminated through publications in peer-reviewed journals and presentations at scientific meetings. The NU team will consist of Prof. Adilson E. Motter (local co-PI), a graduate student (with partial time effort committed to this project), and a postdoctoral researcher (also with partial time effort committed to this project). Members of the team will fulfill the reporting requirements and participate in the annual research and review meetings planned as part of this MURI project.
