Triple point topological metals 

  Topological materials can yield quasiparticles that behave in a manner similar to elementary particles that are part of the standard model of particle physics. In this paper, published in Physical Review X, we report on a new class of such quasiparticles—triple point fermions—which represent fermions that have mixed properties of Dirac and Weyl fermions....Read more

Direct from the 2016 Quantum Retreat in Redmond 

  The 2016 QRetreat took place on Microsoft’s Redmond campus on April 28 and 29, 2016. QRetreat is an annual meeting of the Station Q Santa Barbara and Station Q Redmond teams. The goals of the meeting are to update each other on the recent research in an informal atmosphere and discuss current projects. This...Read more

LIQUi| for quantum computing 

  LIQUi|> is a software architecture and tool suite for quantum computing. It includes a programming language, optimization and scheduling algorithms, and quantum simulators. LIQUi|> can be used to translate a quantum algorithm written in the form of a high-level program into the low-level machine instructions for a quantum device. LIQUi|> is developed by the...Read more

Hybrid quantum-classical approach to correlated materials 

  Recent improvements in the control of quantum systems make it seem feasible to finally build a quantum computer within a decade. While it has been shown that such a quantum computer can in principle solve certain small electronic structure problems and idealized model Hamiltonians, the highly relevant problem of directly solving a complex correlated...Read more

Exponential protection of zero modes in Majorana islands 

Quantum information theory has the potential to revolutionize computation, cryptography, and simulation of quantum systems. However, quantum states are fragile, and unwanted interactions with the environment destroy the information before it can be manipulated successfully. Now, a breakthrough experiment by researchers affiliated with Station Q Copenhagen has demonstrated a key property of Majorana zero modes...Read more
