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.
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.
