Student Presentations

For the final five weeks of the lecture course, students will be giving presentations in pairs on current experimental research in Quantum Information Processing. A list of references for the presentation topics can be found below. A calendar with possible dates will be made available as soon as possible. Each presenter will be assessed by the other students using this evaluation form, so that you can find out for yourselves how good your presentation skills are, and how you might improve them.
