Quantum Technologies for Optical Communication

Colloquium Preview

Date: Thursday, April 27th, 2017

Speaker: Francisco Elohim Becerra, University of New Mexico


Quantum information science can enable communication technologies with capabilities surpassing those of current technologies. For example, by harnessing the quantum properties of light or single-photon detection, it is possible to devise measurements achieving sensitivities beyond the ultimate sensitivities of current coherent communication technologies. Furthermore, by using entangled pairs of photons it is possible to establish absolute secure communication
