Breaking the Wall of Traditional Electronics [electronic resource]: How Embracing Disorder in Nanotechnology May Lead to Quantum Machines

Falling Walls Foundation
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
While many today are barely keeping up with all the latest digital marvels, others are focused on finding ways to reinvent computing altogether - such as through recent efforts to engineer "quantum machines." The quantum mechanical nature of matter at the atomic scale may not only allow us to build information technologies with unprecedented levels of computational power, but may also lead us to discover and develop new ways of embracing the defects and disorder that nature has made common at the nanoscale. David Awschalom - an award-winning, experimental physicist in semiconductor spintronics at the University of California, Santa Barbara - is working with his team to make quantum machines a reality, by mobilizing atomic-scale defects in diamonds and diamond-like materials to store and process information in a uniquely quantum-mechanical way. In this Falling Walls lecture, Awschalom discusses his latest work, including some of the potential uses and future challenges of these technologies.
