Student Award at Quantum Symposium
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!
