PicoQuant to hold the 1st International Symposium on “Single Photon based Quantum Technologies”

Researchers from all over the world will meet in Berlin from May 30 to June 1, 2018

Researchers from all over the world will meet on PicoQuant’s first quantum symposium in Berlin to present and discuss recent developments in single photon based quantum technology.The aim of this new symposium is to provide an interdisciplinary platform for exchanging experience and information as well as sharing recent findings in the field of single photon based quantum technologies. Ten distinguished researchers from Europe and the USA will present their recent work in this field. The invited speakers for this first edition of the workshop are Ivo P. Degiovanni, Mark Fox, David Gershoni, Ronald Hanson, Wolfram Pernice, Andrew Shields, Christine Silberhorn, Varun Verma, Ian Walmsley, and Ronald Walsworth.

Contributed oral presentations as well as a poster session round out the symposiums scientific program, while a welcome reception provides participants with the opportunity for further discussions with the invited speakers and other attendees. Registration for the 1st International Symposium on “Single Photon based Quantum Technologies” will open in October 2017.

The first generation of quantum technologies such as transistors, solid-state lighting, lasers, or GPS have dramatically changed the world during the last 50 years. Today, we are paving the way for a second revolution by starting to exploit quantum phenomena such as superposition or entanglement. Breathtaking advances in creating and manipulating dedicated entangled and/or superimposed quantum states will lead to new technologies that promise to change our society in the next 5-20 years through revolutionary breakthroughs in imaging, sensing, communication, simulation and computation. However, we are still at the beginning of transferring theory into technology in many of the related research fields.

Excerpt of topics:

  • Single-photon detectors and sources
  • Quantum metrology and sensing
  • Quantum correlations and entanglement
  • Quantum information processing, communication and QKD
  • Integrated photonic quantum circuits
