Outreach and public engagement will be an important part of QCALL. Each ESR will be involved in several outreach activities during their PhD.
26 May 2021, 4pm-6pm (British summer time)
Members of the public are invited to attend a public lecture on Quantum Communications for All, given by our own coordinator, Professor Mohsen Razavi of University of Leeds. You will also get to meet with some of our lead scientists and early-stage researchers who would be more than happy to answer your questions and engage in discussions. To register for this event please visit here. The talk will be given in English, but some member of our team would be able to speak in other languages including French, Italian, German, Greek, Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese, Hungarian, and Farsi.
Story of the month: You on Spotlight
In April we also had a few ESRs on the Spotlight.
If you are interested to learn about “Timelock” and how it is related to QKD, make sure to read about Nilesh Vyas research post titled: “Quantum Cryptography using Quantum Computational Timelock”
Davide Rusco one of our experimentalist ESRs has shared his research on secure digital communications and cryptography in action. Please have a read here to learn more on the practical advancements in the field.
In March we had a few ESRs on the Spotlight.
Following the above where Carlo and Mujtaba explained QKD , Shouvik Ghorai our ESR based at UPMC has created some FAQ page around cryptography and talked more about Continuous-variable Quantum Cryptography.
And finally our other ESR in University of Vigo, Margarida Pereira, is explaining how the concept is operationalised in her recent post: Quantum key distribution – from theory to practice.
In February Mirko Pittaluga was also on the Spotlight. If you are interested to know how Quantum Key distribution can make communications more secure read his post on Experimental Twin Field Quantum Key Distribution.
We had another interesting piece on Spotlight by our creative ESR, Hamid Tebyanian, on Trusted randomness for quantum communication applications. He has shared his research in a video, check it out here.
“Anyone who considers arithmetical methods of producing random digits is, of course, in a state of sin.”, John Von Neumann, In October we had Gaetan Gras to talk about IDQ’s QRNG chip for mobile phones and how they have escaped the state of sin!
In September we had Innocenzo De Marco on the spotlight. Here you can learn about chip-based technologies for quantum communications!
In August we had Antonio Ortu on the spotlight. Here you can read his story on solid-state crystals for quantum repeaters!
