2018 [School on Quantum Communication]
Quantum technologies are on the verge of entirely changing our way of distributing and processing information. In this so-called “second quantum revolution”, photonics is playing the key role to establish novel schemes to communicate over long distances and in an absolutely secure manner. While first commercial systems are already available, current research efforts are focusing on the development of next-generation protocols, enlarging transmission rates and covering larger distances.
The School on Quantum Communication aims to provide a series of lectures that introduce modern communication concepts using quantum states as the information carrier. The discussed topics will include free space and satellite communication, quantum repeaters and memories as well as the security quantum cryptography schemes. The lectures will be held by distinguished experts in the fields, and are intended for graduate students and young researchers.
