The 2020 Users workshop took place September 14 and 15. The 2020 MagLab Users Committee meeting was held September 16-18, 2020 by invitation only. Both events was held via zoom.

  • Users Workshop

    "Quantum Spin Coherence" (Zoom) Workshop Monday-Tuesday (14-15 Sept 2020)

    Motivation: A vision for computing of the future involves the development of functional quantum materials for electronic devices that leverage long-lived coherences of quantum states. National and international science funding agencies have embraced this vision due to the expanding success being reported for quantum computing. The investigation of these complex systems involves multi-messenger approaches that include ESR-NMR tools probing the quantum nature of these systems at the extremes of temperature, magnetic field, and frequency domains. Ultimately, the devices may operate in low magnetic fields and at high temperatures, but the new systems will need to be engineered to avoid dissipation mechanisms that limit the quantum coherence. Consequently, detailed knowledge of perturbative terms, typically considered to be too small to be included in previous work, need to be understood, and MagLab tools at the extremes of cold temperature and high magnetic field are poised to lead fundamental research in this direction. This Workshop is assembled to provide a broad, diverse overview of some efforts to control and evaluate quantum spin coherence and to envision future work that may be performed at MagLab facilities.

    Registration for the Users Workshop closed September 10, 2020.
