Abstract:

In this project we have investigated the use of noise to support the generation of noise and coherent quantum information processing. We have presented schemes to this effect firstly in quantum optical settings optical cavity QED, ion traps and then in condensed matter environments nano-mechanical oscillators and SQUID technologies. Abstract theoretical investigations into the usefulness of noise for quantum information processing have been carried out. The work on this project has led to 7 publications, of which 2 appeared in Physical Review Letters and one in PRA Rapid Communications. The work of this project has been presented in 17 talks at international conferences and university colloquiuae.
