The ANU College of Engineering and Computer Science was delighted to host students and academic staff from the University of Tokyo for a bi-lateral quantum technology workshop this week.
Over 35 attendees joined together on Monday 6 – Tuesday 7 March to attend research presentations and discussions, lab tours and to undertake a visit to the ANU Department of Quantum Science. Many attendees of the workshop are part of the Australian Research Council Centre for Quantum Computation and Communication Technology, including Partner Investigator Professor Akira Furusawa from the University of Tokyo, and Chief Investigators Professor Matt James, Professor Elanor Huntington, Professor Ping Koy Lam, Dr Ben Buchler and Dr Matthew Sellars from ANU. “I congratulate Professor Akira Furusawa of the University Tokyo and Professor Matt James from ANU for organising this successful research workshop, as a follow up to a similarly successful event held at University of Tokyo in March 2016,” said Director of the ANU Research School of Electrical, Energy and Materials Engineering, Professor Saman Halgamuge. “This event will strengthen our on-going relationship with University of Tokyo by providing many researchers in both Universities to meet, network and collaborate.”
