A recent report of the United States Department of Energy “Quantum for Fusion, Fusion for Quantum” has highlighted several opportunities for scientific discovery and technology advances at the interface of quantum computing and quantum technologies with fusion and plasma physics.
With the goal of fostering and promoting the dialogue across these two areas and to promote the interdisciplinary interaction between the researchers working in these fields, the Group of Lasers and Plasmas at IPFN, and the Physics of Information and Quantum Technologies Group at IT will host a series of monthly discussion sessions on Quantum for Plasmas & Plasmas for Quantum (QPPQ).
Everyone is welcome to attend. Each session will include a summary or review talk of 30 minutes followed by a discussion of 30 minutes. The discussion sessions will run once per month, and will be hosted by Yasser Omar and Luis O. Silva.

Congratulations to José Jesus for winning the Best Student Paper Award at the 13th Congress of the Portuguese Committee of URSI ''Space: Challenges and Opportunities''!
The paper reported the demonstration of free-space quantum communications that José developed at the QuTe Lab - Quantum Technologies Laboratory, under the supervision of Manfred Niehus.
The work of José was supported by a scholarship from the Gulbenkian Programme "New Talents in Quantum Technologies".
Gonçalo Quinta won a Junior researcher Stimulus of Scientific Employment contract from Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia (FCT). Congratulations Gonçalo!
Diogo Cruz has defended his MSc thesis, Quantum Simulations of Hadronic Systems, on 29 November 2019. Congratulations Diogo!
