Physics Senior Presentation: "Quantum Teleportation of the Vibrational State of Molecular Hydrogen"

Monday, June 3, 2013

3:30 PM-4:30 PM

Physics Major: Kenneth Mui

Abstract: Recently, research in quantum teleportation has greatly increased and this is largely due to the growing field of quantum computing [1, 2]. Currently, most quantum teleportation (QT) protocols are tailored to attractive, potential quantum computing applications that have significant impact in the near future, perhaps as soon as a few years to a decade. However, there has been little research or serious discussion using QT in ways that are fantasized in a futuristic, science fiction sense like Star Trek. It is the aim of this thesis to provide an original outline to tackle such a feat. The system we will use will be the most simple molecule H2. Although it may seem that our technological time era is still too premature to permit this, one finds that to the contrary, a handful of published and well cited physics papers in respective journals like Phys. Rev. are proposing related efforts [3, 4, 5] and we will model closely to them. (References [1-5] are given in thesis paper)
