Nanotubes are attractive materials for electron spin qubits because they can be made free of hyperfine dephasing and because spin-orbit interaction offers a route to all-electrical spin control. I will describe the first qubit in this material, the valley-spin qubit. The qubit is controlled by exploiting spin-orbit coupling in a bent nanotube and read out electrically using a generalization of Pauli blockade in a double quantum dot. I will also discuss prospects for studying spin-phonon...

As we continue to embrace cyberspace and the opportunities it affords us our identities and online personas are increasing in value - to us, to the service providers we engage, to criminals and to those who would exploit cyberspace to conduct attacks. The ability to understand identity and how it transcends cyber and physical spaces is important in understanding the exposure to risk people may face, as well as in detecting the perpetrators of crime. The SuperIdentity project is developing a...

Wednesday 23 October 2013, 1300-1500
Venue To Be Confirmed
Chemicals Northwest is the industry-led, chemical cluster support organisation for the £10 billion North West chemical sector, the largest in the UK, and works in partnership with both the private and public sectors. The talk will give an overview of the innovation priorities for the chemical sector.

Venue To Be Confirmed
Stuart is the Chief Technology Officer for QinetiQ's Simulation and Training Group. Stuart started his career at the Defence Evaluation and Research Agency (then part of the UK MOD) in 1999, developing defence simulations and joined QinetiQ when it was privatised in 2001. Since then, Stuart has been responsible for the practical exploitation and application of many simulation technologies in support of a wide and diverse military user base.
