|Isaac L. Chuang|
University of California Berkeley
Los Alamos National Laboratory
|Alma mater||Stanford University
|Doctoral advisor||Yoshihisa Yamamoto|
|Known for||NMR quantum computing|
Isaac L. Chuang currently leads the quanta research group at the Center for Ultracold Atoms at MIT. He received his undergraduate degrees in physics (1990) and electrical engineering (1991) and masters in electrical engineering (1991) at MIT. In 1997 he received his PhD in electrical engineering from Stanford University.
Chuang is one of the pioneers of NMR quantum computing. Since 2003, Chuang has focused his attention on trapped ion approaches to quantum computing, as the field of liquid state NMR quantum computing fell out of favor due to limitations on its scalability beyond 10's of qubits due to noise.
Chuang is also widely known for having authored one of the primary reference books in the field of quantum information with Michael Nielsen.
While employed at IBM in 1999, Chuang was to be featured in a film by Errol Morris, commissioned by IBM for an internal conference on the occasion of the year 2000. The conference was cancelled and the film was never completed, however excerpts including Chuang can be viewed at Morris's personal web site.
