I'm a PhD student at the CDT in Controlled Quantum Dynamics at Imperial College London. My research is on strong-field and ultrafast physics, and I mostly study tunnel ionization and high-harmonic generation.

Check out my papers - they're nice!

You can also check out my Master's dissertation, "Under-the-barrier electron-ion interactions during tunnel ionization" at arXiv:1307.7329 or on my CDT homepage.

I did my Bachelor's degree in Physics in Mexico at the Faculty of Science at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM). I studied quantum optics for my dissertation with Eduardo Nahmad Achar, and I have some nice results on the Jordan-block structure of the annihilation operator (as well as what became the J Phys A paper). You can find it (in Spanish) in the UNAM thesis repository.

In any case, it's non-standard, non-googleable notation. If it's update there's nothing wrong with spelling it out.

comment Is a universal quantum computer expected to be able to shed any light on the measurement problem? - Part A
I should probably stop you in your tracks: they won't. They will help us understand quantum mechanics better. But again, they sit inside of QM (unless they disprove it, which would be a major surprise), and the measurement problem is outside it.

comment Is a universal quantum computer expected to be able to shed any light on the measurement problem? - Part A
Quantum computing is probably not the best way to test things like decoherence models. You should look into quantum simulation, both 'analogue' and 'digital', which tries to implement interesting models and test them experimentally. This would then allow us to test decoherence phenomena (i.e. one qubit coupled to a bath) on a test tube. Similarly, quantum thermodynamics experiments like this one are very interesting testbeds of the bits of QM which we're less sure about.

'Published in Nature' and 'buried' are usually on quite opposite ends of the publishing spectrum.

@Daniel The Wikipedia caption labels it that way.

comment How would we experience sound if light velocity was (much) smaller?
You may be interested in A Slower Speed of Light, which is great for building intuition about how the world would look at relativistic speeds, but which unfortunately does not deal with changes in sound.

@DavidZ I really don't see the point of removing content. Mark it as requiring attention by all means, but this is the sort of trigger-happiness which we keep pointing out and which really (rightfully) angers a lot of people.
