Particle Statistics: a Resource for Quantum Information Processing

Date/Time: 23 January 2007 - ()

Speaker: Yasser Omar (Technical University of Lisbon)

We show how particle statistics can be used as a resource for quantum information processing. After introducing this fundamental aspect of quantum physics, we will present examples showing how it is possible to perform both useful and efficient quantum information processing relying only on the effects of the indistinguishability of identical particles. All the proposed schemes can be implemented with current technology.
