ESP Biography
CHINGYANG YU, Postdoctoral scholar in quantum optics
Major: Applied Physics College/Employer: Stanford Year of Graduation: Not available. 

Brief Biographical Sketch:
ChingYang (Leo) Yu became captivated by quantum computing immediately when he learned about it as an undergraduate in Taiwan. He then came to Stanford to pursue his Ph. D. and postdoc. His main research interest is to create, explore, and manipulate quantum materials for both classical and quantum information processing (IP). Such new IP units promise to perform energyefficiently at a single quantum level, and to tackle outstanding quantum physics and chemistry problems via simulation.

What is “quantum”? How does the weirdness of quantum mechanics promise another revolution in information technology?
In this class, you’ll learn the basic principles of quantum mechanics, and apply these principles to understand quantum key distribution, a perfectly secure way for communication. The class will foster physical understanding through demonstrations during lecture.
