Quantum Acoustics – Surface Acoustic Waves meets Solid State Qubits

May 17th-20th 2016

This workshop was organized to promote the new field of quantum acoustics ‐ a phonon analogue of quantum optics on chip – where single phonons in the form of high‐frequency surface acoustic waves (SAWs) propagate in acoustic waveguides coupling remote qubits. The phonons can also be captured in high‐Q cavities for storage and to increase coupling with the qubits. In order to motivate scientist to collaborate and to boost quantum acoustics, the organizers brought together three scientific fields which have not interacted substantially before, i.e.:
1) SAW, 2) Solid State Spin Qubits and 3) Superconducting Qubits
