Quantum Computer Chip

Lafyatis' research featured by University Relations

Greg Lafyatis, associate professor of physics, and doctoral student Katharina Christandl are engaged in research that could lead to a process for quantum computing - allowing for even faster computers than we have today. In order to better describe the research, University Relations called on ACCAD, who created an animation to illustrate the concepts. For the complete news story, see The animation can be viewed there as well. Supplemental frames from the animation can be seen at
