Student Award at Quantum Symposium
Undergraduates and graduate students can now submit their abstract for the “Student Award” to be awarded at the 3rd International Symposium on “Single Photon based Quantum Technologies”. The competition for the best presentation offers a cash award worth 750 Euro.
Application deadline is May 31, 2020.
Registration now at the symposium website.
Among all the excellent contributions, Mariella Minder (Cambridge University Engineering Department, United Kingdom) won the 750 Euro prize with her outstanding presentation on “Experimental quantum key distribution beyond the repeaterless rateloss limit”. Congratulations!
Many excellent contributions made it very difficult for the jury to nominate a single winner. Therefore the student award of 750 Euro was split between Naomi Holland (University of Oxford, United Kingdom) who presented her work on "Optical Tweezers for Neutral Atoms: The Key to a Reliable Atom-Photon Quantum Interface" and Ekkehart Schmidt (Karlsruhe Institute for Technology, Germany) who talked on "Superconducting nanowire single-photon detectors on GaAs with suppressed parasitic counts". Congratulations!
The submission of the abstracts for the Quantum Symposium 2018 is closed.
