Applied Nanotools to Attend Quantum Alberta Workshop 13 May 2016 – Come See Our Booth

Applied Nanotools will have a booth at the Quantum Alberta Workshop on 13 May 2016.


Details from the website (Quantum Alberta Workshop 2016):


Workshop steering committee: Paul Barclay, John Davis, Lindsay LeBlanc, Barry Sanders.

An objective of AQN2 is to bring together Alberta’s Quantum-Nano community drawn from a larger base that includes NAIT, SAIT, the University of Lethbridge, industry and government plus industry representation. Total attendance is expected to be 140. The goal for this gathering is to forge a strategy for strengthening quantum-nano activities in Alberta, foster collaboration, identify the benefits that quantum-nano research bring to Alberta, determine requisite infrastructural support, investigate how to attract the best and brightest students, researchers and faculty members to the province, and initiate provincial-scale activities such as workshops to benefit all members of this community. The format for the event will be a few invited talks, a poster session, focused discussions and break-out sessions covering strategic topics emerging during the day. The day will end at 5 pm for most, but a leadership will form during the day and carry on planning discussions into the evening.

Nanoscience and quantum science and technology encompass a broad set of research topics, which often intersect. As these fields continue to advance, it is expected that their impact and overlap with each other will grow. Quantum and nano topics that are especially relevant for the quantum-nano workshop are listed below.

  • Nano-Optics: photonics, plasmonics, high-resolution imaging, optical sensors
  • Nano-Materials: nanocrystals, nano-magnetic materials, quantum dots
  • Nano-Mechanics: nano electromechanical systems, torsional resonantors, atomic force microscopy devices
  • Quantum Materials: superfluids and superconductors, quantum gases
  • Quantum Electronics: molecular devices, mesoscopic transport
  • Quantum Science and Technology: quantum control, quantum cryptography, quantum computing
  • Spectroscopy: gas spectroscopy, single emitter spectroscopy
  • Electronic Structure Calculations: ab intio calculations, density functional theory
