Prof Andrew White, School of Mathematics and Physics, The University of Queensland

In order to achieve the technology of futuristic science-fiction movies mankind needs to move beyond the our current computers, which are based on technology that was first developed over half a century ago. As we approach the atomic limit of Moore’s Law computers will need to change from silicon chips to quantum processes.

In this public lecture Prof White will lead you through the progress and the pitfalls of quantum computing and cryptography. And he will explain how these machines, which use strange subatomic behaviour, could spark a computer revolution.

Arrangements: Doors open at 6pm. No need to book – just show up!
Refreshments: Complimentary food and drink will be served after the talk.
Questions? For any further information please contact Andrew (a.stephenson@uq.edu.au).

Prof Andrew White enjoys communicating the weirdness of quantum mechanics while making sure people know just how much fun science really is.

Over the years Andrew has conducted research on various topics including shrimp eyes, nuclear physics, optical vortices, and quantum computers. He likes quantum weirdness for its own sake, but his current research aims to explore and exploit the full range of quantum behaviours—notably entanglement—with an eye to engineering new technologies and scientific applications.

Andrew is the Deputy Director at the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Engineered Quantum Systems (EQuS) and Program Manager at the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Quantum Computing and Communication Technology (CQC2T).
