The Northern California Chapter of the American Vacuum Society will convene its 2020 Technical Symposium (NCCAVS 2020) around the topical theme of “The Quantum World.” The Symposium will focus on technologies that include, but are not limited to, manipulating or taking advantage of quantum effects in these areas:
- Semiconductor device physics, transistors, etc. especially nano-structures
- Photovoltaics, photon energy conversion, plasmonics
- Chemistry, nuclear physics, unconventional bits of general engineering, etc.
- Advanced information transmission & computation e.g. quantum computing
- Nanophotonics and topological quantum photonics
- Quantum dot display technology
All are welcome, and admission is free.
The Preliminary Agenda includes the following invited speakers:
Rudy J. Wojtecki, Ph.D., Research Staff Member & IBM Q Ambassador, IBM Research – Almaden
Robert Jan Visser, Ph.D., Vice President CTO Group, Applied Materials
Andre Linden, Director of International Business Development, Sales Manager and Applications Scientist, Raith America, Inc.
Dale Li, Ph.D., SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, Stanford University
Stephen Kuenstner, Ph.D., SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, Stanford University
John Mark Kreikebaum, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory & Department of Physics, University of California Berkeley
Chris Brown, Ph.D., Director of Quantum Solutions, Zapata Computing, Inc.
4:30 p.m.-6:00 p.m. Following the technical session, there will be a Student Poster Session and reception in the Exhibit Hall.
