“I want my CFT”

February 23, 2019

I want my CFT

(sung to the tune of “Money for Nothing” by Dire Straits (1))

Now look at them LIGOs that’s the way you do it
Correct the errors on the CFT
That ain’t workin’ that’s the way you do it
Photons for nothin’ and your phase for free

Now that ain’t workin’ that’s the way you do it
Lemme tell ya them bits won’t flip
Maybe trap an ion in a planar crystal
Maybe trap an ion on a chip

We gotta install microwave lasers
Custom qubit deliveries
We gotta move these refrigerators
We gotta move these Ising machines

We gotta install microwave lasers
Custom qubit deliveries
We gotta move these refrigerators
We gotta move these Ising machines

I shoulda learned semiconductors
I shoulda learned them fermions
Look at those ions, they can’t find them on the camera
Man, we could have some fun

And he’s up there, what’s that? Rad-pressure noises?
Squeezin’ on the vacuum like a chimpanzee
Oh, that ain’t workin’ that’s the way you do it
Get your photons for nothin’ get your phase for free

We gotta install microwave lasers
Custom qubit deliveries
We gotta move these refrigerators
We gotta move these Ising machines

Listen here, now that ain’t workin’ that’s the way to do it
Correct the errors on the CFT
That ain’t workin’ that’s the way you do it
Photons for nothin’ and your phase for free
Photons for nothin’ and the phase for free
Get your photons for nothin’ and phase for free
Photons for nothin’ and the phase for free (I want my, AdS/CFT)
Photons for nothin’ and the phase for free (I want my, AdS/CFT)


 

Geek is in a Quantum Physics PhD program at University of New Mexico, Albuquerque and his department organized this 21st annual workshop during February 2019 in Albuquerque: http://physics.unm.edu/SQuInT/2019/index.php

Geek attended parts of the event in-between his classes and job teaching undergraduate physics labs.  He sent dad this humorous song summary of the workshop along the lines of others we’ve done on the blog. 🙂
