Photonic Quantum Characterization, Verification and Validation (QCVV)

Funded by the US Army Research Laboratory (ARO)

Larger and larger quantum systems can be controlled in state of the art experiments. Without the use of sophisticated techniques one faces the curse of dimensionality, the exponential growth of the Hilbert space with the number of subsystems, when trying to characterize such systems. Hence new techniques are required to characterize quantum systems and verify accurate control. In this project, we aim to improve and extend existing methods for characterization and verification of large quantum systems. Together with experimental groups, we also work on applying these techniques to new experiments. In this project, we collaborate with scientists from University of Bristol, Imperial College London, University of Cologne and University of Sydney.
