Solid fundamentals have enabled application of quantum dots in photochemistry … Will the same be true for quantum information?: Nano Webinar Series

March 19, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Prof. Emily A. Weiss, Northwestern, Chemistry & MSE
The zoom location for this meeting is https://berkeley.zoom.us/j/99114998107?pwd=M3QwWld3QThIdFRzQXBuUnZ2aUFPdz09
We will discuss the features of colloidal nanocrystals (quantum dots and nanoplatelets) that have enabled record-breaking performance in aqueous CO2 photoreduction and new modes of selectivity in C-C coupling reactions, and look toward the application of quantum dots as intermediaries for quantum transduction between stationary spin qubits and traveling photonic qubits.
Emily Weiss did her PhD at Northwestern and postdoc at Harvard with George Whitesides. She joined the Northwestern faculty in 2008, rising to full professor in 2015. Awards include the PECASE, DOE Early Career, Kavli Emerging Leader, an ACS Early Career as well as several distinguished teaching awards. She is Deputy Editor of the Journal of Chemical Physics and served on the boards of ACS Nano and Nano Letters
