Silicon Quantum Information Processing Meeting: SiQIP 2014


Date: 12th September 2014

Website: here

Venue: University College London, Parson Lecture Theatre

Scope: This meeting brought together more than 50 researchers interested in silicon qubits. Topics covered included experimental and theoretical approaches to quantum coherent control, spin resonance, atomic scale lithography, device fabrication and electronic transport.

Program: The format followed that of our previous meetings, leaving plenty of time for informal discussion.
