Result of the first review of project LANDAUER

After the first year the project LANDAUER has been evaluate with a positive appreciations consisting in: Excellent progress (the project has fully achieved its objectives and technical goals for the period and has even exceeded expectations). Major achievements. The teams have: Developed a protocol for a switch event with zero dissipation in bistable stochastic systems. Used this procedure to model potential energy saving in a 16 bit comparator. Simulated sorting algorithms using a network of logic gates that have error, which leads to less dissipated heat. Developed nanomechanical switches...

Post-doctoral Fellowships at the Physics of Information Group

The Physics of Information Group , at Instituto de Telecomunicacoes (in Lisbon, Portugal), is seeking to hire two Post-doctoral Fellows to develop research in one of the following areas: quantum simulation, quantum information theory, quantum thermodynamics or quantum effects in biology. The candidates are expected to have a doctoral degree and research experience in one of the above areas (or in general in: open quantum systems, quantum optics, condensed matter physics, solid state/graphene physics, biophysics, or information processing in biological systems). Application timing Applications...

First review meeting has been held in Brussels

The first annual review meeting has been held in Brussels last 29th of November, 2013. The five partners involved in the project presented the advances and results at the end of the first year. Luca Gammaitoni, from NiPS laboratory of the University of Perugia introduced the meeting giving an overview of the state of the project. Following, the responsible of each Work Package (WP) presented the achievements and the status of each WP: WP 1 Logic switch: classical and quantum modeling - Yasser Omar, Physics of Information Group, Instituto de Telecomunicações, Lisbon, Portugal WP 2 Noisy...
