Speaker Bio: Carl J. Williams is a physicist in the Quantum Processes Group, Atomic Physics Division, of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). His research activities involve ultracold atomic collisions, Bose-Einstein condensation, and quantum information. His work in the quantum information arena currently focuses on neutral atom quantum computing including quantum gates, generalized quantum architectures, and quantum cryptography. He is the coordinator of the NIST Quantum Information Program (http://qubit.nist.gov). Dr. Williams received his Ph.D. from the University of Chicago in 1987, joined NIST in 1998, is a Fellow of the American Physical Society, and was awarded the Department of Commerce Silver Medal in 2003 for his leadership of the NIST Quantum Information Program.
