QuTiP Control tutorial

The tutorial is intended to give hands on experience of optimising pulses for the control for a varity of quantum systems. The control modules within the popular QuTiP library (Quantum Toolbox in Python. http://qutip.org/) will be used. We want delegates to be able to take home working version of the library along with the worked examples, and therefore we are running 'bring your own device' session. Instructions are provided below on how to get set up before the session. A VirtualBox image will be provided for anyone who does not wish to install the library and necessary components on their device. An an introduction will be given before the hands on part.

SpinDrops App for iPhone

The SpinDrops iPhone app allows students and scientists in physics, chemistry, biochemistry and medicine to explore and to better understand basic and advanced magnetic resonance experiments.The rich dynamics of up to three coupled spins can be interactively explored and is useful in science and teaching.

 

New open source Python module for quantum optimal control in QuTiP

The quantum control group at Aberystwyth University have developed a Python module for quantum optimal control. The module has been incorporated into QuTiP (Quantum Toolbox in Python) and is now part of the official release 3.1.0, which was announced on 1 Jan 2015.

Quantum control: A key facilitator for quantum technologies

Quantum control: Definitions and status

It is control that turns scientific knowledge into useful technology: It is used to manage production lines, optimize the flow of traffic, or maintain the temperature in office buildings. Control allows us to maximize efficiency and minimize resource consumption. Originally developed in the 1960s to facilitate engineering work and famously applied to find optimal trajectories to reach the moon by the Apollo missions, optimal control theory has evolved and expanded with the rest of physics – it is presently found in areas as diverse as optical spectroscopy, photochemistry, magnetic resonance and quantum information processing.
