I have applied for a summer project in NMR quantum computing as I want to learn this field, but my professor wants me to tell him the project title. I have no idea about the field and what projects are good. Please can you suggest me some good 2 month projects.

I have done advanced course in quantum mechanics and also I am familiar with NMR machine.

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Look for papers on NMR quantum computing. Try to look for the thing that made you interested in this field (I'm guessing you made an informed decision here and did not apply for this project without any particular reason). Read the papers that are related and see what their titles are, and then come up with your own preliminary title. You may wish to keep the title a little vague or rather simple so that it may incorporate a diverse collection of specific projects/tasks. – Hasan Oct 11 '13 at 18:40
Thanks for a reply but the thing is that the application deadlines are approaching, and I do not have enough time to go through many papers. Also, I became interested in the field because the research is trying to achieve something ("a quantum computer!!!"), that can do wonders. Also I have access to the costly instruments that are used in the research. I will credit a course on QC in the coming semester but I have to propose a project along with its detail till the end of this month. – aaveg Oct 15 '13 at 14:23
You don't have to understand each and every thing in a paper. Seriously, it shouldn't take more than a day's work and you'll have your topic. – Hasan Oct 15 '13 at 14:28
I think I should stop be lethargic and atleast giving the thing a shot. Thanks @Hasan for the motivation. – aaveg Oct 15 '13 at 14:34
