A team of students in the Radulaski Lab: Victoria Norman, Sridhar Majety, Jesse Patton and Liang Li, won the California division of the Qiskit Summer Jam Hackathon, sponsored by IBM. Their project, QUantum Information Demonstrations PROmoting QUantum Optics (Quid Pro Quo) used the quantum circuit programming package, Qiskit, to simulate quantum optics phenomena. The team created a suite of user-friendly desktop applications to display and illustrate quantum optics experiments. The students hope Quid Pro Quo will be used for quantum education in classrooms and for STEM outreach programs.
