Event Description

Join us for a short presentation followed by lively discussion and questions and answers. These are always fun!

Note: The schedule for Science on Tap is changing. The new schedule will be the third MONDAY of each month with the exception of January and February of 2018 when there is a conflict with federal holidays.

This month:

Quantum computing holds a promise to speed processing, reduce energy use, and advance many applications. This is because at the quantum level subatomic particles can exist in more than one state at any time. As people move from “bits” to “qubits” (quantum bits), a new future in computing is coming closer to reality with ever increasing qubit counts available on quantum computing systems.

Join Stephan Eidenbenz, with the Lab’s National Security Education Center, and Patrick Coles, with the Theoretical Division, who will talk about the progress of quantum computing, why the Laboratory cares about this subject and, and some of the recent work we’ve done in this emerging field.
