SanD members participate in the 2014 AQIS Conference @ Kyoto

SanD graduate students Rona Barbarona and Francis Bayocboc, Jr. attended the 14th Asian Quantum Information Science (AQIS) Conference and presented their research posters in Kyoto last 20-24 August 2014. Rona, who is also a faculty member of the UPLB IMSP, reported non-analyticities in the spin-orbit entanglement entropy of 2D many electron systems at integer filling factors. Meanwhile, Francis demonstrated how an examination of work fluctuations in quantum quenches of an XY Heisenberg magnet can be used to locate its critical lines.

Rona's participation was supported by the UP OVPAA through Grant No. OVPAA-BPhD-2012-05, while Francis' was supported by the DOST-ASTHRDP through its Student Research Support Fund.
