22ème conférence Itzykson, manipulation of simple quantum systems, June 6-8 2017
The Itzykson Conference is held every year at the Institut de Physique Théorique in Saclay to honour the memory of Claude Itzykson.
The 22nd edition of this conference, will take place on June 06-08, 2017 and will be devoted to the manipulation of simple quantum systems.
Simple quantum systems, with few "effective" degrees of freedom, have a privileged place in our understanding of quantum mechanics because they are often found at the heart of the Gedanken experiments of the founding fathers. After a century of development of the field and technical progress, they are now implemented in many systems (quantum electrodynamics in cavity or in circuits, for example). Two-level systems, which are the simplest examples, are candidates to be the basic bricks, the qubits, of a future quantum computer.
