During July 17 – August 14, 2021, Prof. ZENG Bei, the Director of the IAS Center for Quantum Technologies delivered a short course spanning five weekends of lectures and a demonstration of quantum computer on introducing quantum computing to secondary school students. Ten students from Hong Kong Academy for Gifted Education attended the course and successfully finished all materials from the principles of classical to quantum logic gates to the quantum programming language and quantum algorithms. The content was to introduce the new era of quantum computing to students as early as possible in their academic journey. Prof. Zeng took a lot of questions from the students and the program forced educators to think how education of quantum technologies can be started and integrated in high-school curriculum. Read more

Over 200 heads witnessed how qubits could be manipulated and observed quantum computation in real time at an event “Meet the Quantum Computer: Exhibition and Hands-on Experience” during July 5 – 8, 2021. The system uses nuclear spins of phosphorous and hydrogen atoms in a dimethylphosphite molecule to define a two-qubit quantum register. These nuclear spins can then be initialized, addressed, and subsequently read-out using nuclear magnetic resonance techniques. This offered excitement to not only students, but also faculty, staff and even commercial and industry players who encountered this amazing innovation. Read more
