QCALL


Quantum Communications for ALL (QCALL) is a European Innovative Training Network that endeavours to take the next necessary steps to bring the developing quantum technologies closer to the doorsteps of end users. QCALL will empower a nucleus of 15 doctoral researchers in this area to provide secure communications in the European continent and, in the long run, to its connections worldwide. Check out our research work packages and training activities in the form of Schools and Workshops to find more about the scope of the project.

Story of the Month

Chip-based technologies for Quantum Communications

Chip-Finger
An InP chip with lasers, modulators and output waveguides. Such elements integrated on a chip sit on the top of a fingertip, whereas they would result in a 40 to 50 times bigger setup using ordinary components.

Innocenzo De Marco, our Toshiba based ESR, has explained his research work on novel chip-based technologies for Quantum Communications in this easily accessible piece. Check it out here.

Solid State Crystals for Long-Distance Quantum Communications

A europium-doped YSO crystal, of about 1 cm in length, as visible from a window of our cryostat, while our yellow laser shines through it. The coil enveloping the crystal is used to address the spin states of europium via an oscillating magnetic field.

QCALL ESR Conference 2019

In less than a week, we will meet in South Italy to have the first QCALL conference organised by our own ESRs. There is still time to register for this conference to learn about the work of your peers and experts in the field. There will be over 10 invited speakers from industry and academia. To learn more, please visit here.

QCALL Science Film Contest

We are organising a science film contest for secondary (high) school students to explain a quantum technology or its application in their own way. We are still open to applications, and our ESRs will be happy to coach interested parties in this activity. More information can be found here.
