From the Daily Iowan: University of Iowa Assistant Professor Keri Hoadley received a national award to help further pursue her research on FIREBall-2. This will involve the use of a balloon telescope to find and navigate gas emissions.
In a new study, the researchers describe theoretically how many indistinguishable photons can be sent simultaneously down a fiber-optical cable to establish secure communications, and how rapidly these quantum codes can send information.
Keri Hoadley, assistant professor of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Iowa, recently won a $99,880 award from the California Institute of Technology to continue her work on the Faint Intergalactic-medium Redshifted Emission Balloon (FIREBall-2) mission.
The Universities Research Association has awarded $2,000 to UI Visiting Assistant Professor Kenneth Heitritter as part of its Visiting Scholars Program. The award will allow him to work at Fermilab on "Toward applications of quantum computing for string fragmentation in the context of the PYTHIA event generator." Professor Yannick Meurice is the principal investigator on the project.
