Joint Lab Workshop "Quantum Computing" at the University of Potsdam

On Tuesday 10th October

The lecture introduces the basic concepts of quantum information processing. The qubit and its physical realizations will be introduced, followed by a first application -- the secure quantum key distribution in the BB84 protocol. The principles of the quantum computer will be discussed on the basis of the Deutsch-Josza decision algorithm and its generalization in the Shor algorithm. The lecture concludes with an outlook on the quantum-information roadmap of the European Community and its new flagship initiative.

The building and the infrastructure of the IHP were funded by the European Regional Development Fund of the European Union, funds of the Federal Government and also funds of the Federal State of Brandenburg.
