#WIDOMSUMVAC — Tokyo Day Four!

Signed off on a Memorandum of Understanding to codify collaborations between the Japanese NICT Quantum ICT Advanced Development Center and the LSU Hearne Institute of Theoretical Physics.

Group picture of QICT and me! Dr. Masahide Sasaki, Distinguished Researcher to my immediate left,
Dr. Koichi Semba, to his left (in back), Director Dr. Masahiro Takeoka to his left.
My students and I had great discussion with Dr. Semba and his researchers, as well as with Dr. Takeuchi, on their latest experiments with superconducting qubits coupled to a micro resonator in the ultrastrong coupling regime. This ain't your grandma's Jaynes-Cummings model. 

Free space laser cryptography system. Not in use today due to rain.

Always something fun to see on the walk to NICT from the train station.
Star Wars Memorabilia takes over the tea room.
