Summer of Quantum - Talk Series
We have a fantastic lineup of national and international experts in quantum and classical science who will give lectures on quantum technologies through the summer at OQN's weekly meet-ups!
I am excited to present to you Summer of Quantum, a talk series hosted by OneQuantum Nepal. In this series, you will hear from national and international experts about different topics in quantum technologies. The subjects of the talks span across multiple disciplines, from history and theory of classical computing to quantum effects in biological macromolecules. We thank all the speakers for their time!
At OQN, we value diversity and inclusion. Our goal has always been (and will always be) to train people from underprivileged regions of Nepal in quantum technologies. Our members come from diverse background, and one of the main focuses of OQN is to encourage inclusion of more women and minority groups in STEM research and commercializable deep-tech. We aim to achieve these goals through lectures series such as this as well as our mentorship program, among others. Most of these lectures will take place at 7 PM (Nepali time). Owing to big time difference between California and Kathmandu, the lecture from Prof. Dr. Clarice D. Aiello will take place at 8.45 PM (Nepali time). I hope you guys will enjoy learning science and technology from these fantastic researchers and quantum engineers.
The first lecture of the series will be from Dr. Yves Acremann. Dr. Yves is a senior scientist at Laboratory for Solid State Physics, ETH Zürich, Switzerland. The topic of his talk is: Magnetism in the time domain: From ultra-slow to ultra-fast. Please checkout the abstract of the talk below:
Magnetism is one of the oldest fields in physics but has important applications for our society: Most of the data we interact with on a daily basis is stored on hard disks. In this talk we will explore the dynamics of the magnetization. Magnetic rocks can store the earths magnetic field for geological time scales. At the same time, we can write bits on a hard disk within less than a nanosecond. Using ultrafast lasers and spin-resolved electron spectroscopy we can observe magnetization dynamics on the femtosecond time scale.
We are very much looking forward to this lecture. It takes place at 7 PM (Nepali time) on 24.06.2021. On behalf of OQN, I thank Dr. Yves for his time!
News and Events
Our OQN member, Aabiskar Thapa, was accepted to Quantum Cryptography School for Young Students 2021 (QCSYS 2021)! We are very proud of him. Too bad that Corona restrictions will not allow him to travel to Waterloo, Canada, to experience the event in-person but he will power through with zoom this time around!
