IPAS Seminar: The GEM of Memory Storage

Dr Ben Sparkes kicked off the 2017 IPAS Seminar Series with his presentation titled “Gradient Echo Memory: A GEM for Quantum Information Processing”.

Gradient Echo Memory (GEM) is based on photon echoes and is a more precise and efficient form of quantum  memory and storage for light.

Ben joined the Precision Measurement Group two months ago, following a postdoc at University of Melbourne and undertaking his PhD at Australia National University.  He is an ARC DECRA Fellow and is looking forward to expanding his research within IPAS.
