1st International RAISIN Workshop

5th-8th September 2022
Venue: Institute of Physics, London
and University of Surrey, Guildford

Abstract submission is now closed.


The fundamental objective of this workshop is to set out an interim roadmap that will enable single ion implantation capabilities to advance applications of quantum technologies. The goals of the workshop are: Identification of new collaborations; seeking QT academic community prioritization of tool/techniques development; identification of potential gaps in network skills and capabilities to deliver the proposed roadmap.
