    Quantum information science has been an exciting area of research, with many different platforms. In this talk, I am going to introduce quantum information science with a focus on quantum optical systems, including two main subjects---quantum sensing and quantum information scrambling. Quantum sensing utilizes nonclassical resource, such as entanglement and coherence, to enhance performance of estimating parameters or hypothesis testing.  I will summarize recent advances in quantum sensing and communication, especially introducing two protocols, quantum illumination and distributed sensing. Quantum information scrambling in many-body systems has sharpened our understanding of quantum chaos, complexity and gravity. I will introduce the basics and some new results on quantum communication and information scrambling in quantum optical systems. 

    Speaker Bio(s): 

    Quntao Zhuang is an assistant professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the College of Optical Sciences. He joined the department after finishing a position as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of California, Berkeley. He earned his PhD in physics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2018. Quntao is broadly interested in quantum information processing and quantum optics.
