New Quantum Tutorial

By Chandler Parkin December 18, 2023 12:29 PM
The CamachoLab at BYU has been working hard on Simphony, an open-source Python package that, in conjunction with SAX, helps in defining and simulating photonic circuits.

Julie Des Jardins Visits the CamachoLab

By Chandler Parkin October 16, 2023 10:44 AM
Julie Des Jardins is the director for Diversity of Inclusion at the Center for Quantum Networks, so naturally her curiosity was piqued when she heard about BYU's unique researchers. BYU is special among modern universities in the quantity of undergraduate researchers that it employs, and that is especially true for the CamachoLab which employs many more undergraduates, than it does graduate students. So on October 5 Julie came to BYU to see what we are all about. She got to meet the team and share just a little about what she does at the Center for Quantum Networks and she mentioned many opportunities that CQN has for university students, including the University of Arizona's Quantum Information master's program (more information about that here).

Ben and the Quantum Random Number Generator Team Excel in the IETC Conference

Congratulations to Ben Fisher and the quantum random number generator team for a second place paper in the technology category at the Intermountain Engineering, Technology, and Computing Conference

Christian Runs in the Boston Marathon

April 29, 2023 07:32 PM
All brains, no brawn? Not Christian. In addition programming Simphony, BYU's opensource photonic circuits simulator, Christian is an avid runner. He's been running since he was little and despite his preference for Python, he is by far the fastest member of the Camacho Lab.
