Séminaire d'Automatique du Plateau de Saclay : Quantum reservoir engineering to control light with atoms.

Séminaire le 20 Juin 2017, 11h00 à CentraleSupelec (Gif-sur-Yvette) Salle des séminaires du L2S
Alain Sarlette (QUANTIC Lab, INRIA Paris & SYSTeMS research group, Ghent University)

This talk will give a simple introduction to a quantum stabilization technique called "reservoir engineering", which builds on the dissipation induced on a target system by its interaction with an open auxiliary system. We will introduce the technique, recall some older results obtained in our group and finally present our latest results in which we study the effect on the target system, of entanglement "in time" in the auxiliary system. This is joint work with my postdoc Zibo Miao.

Bio. Alain Sarlette has an engineering degree (applied physics) and a PhD (systems and control theory) from the University of Liège, Belgium. He has been a visiting researcher at Princeton University, Mines Paris-Tech, IIT Bombay among others. He is currently assistant professor at Ghent University (Belgium) and Senior Researcher (CR1) at INRIA Paris in the QUANTIC lab. His research interests include nonlinear and geometric control, coordination algorithms, and mainly algorithms and control for quantum technologies.
