Seminario Comunicaciones cuánticas: Quantum Cryptography: Why and How

Aula T217 | Escuela Ingeniería Telecomunicación (Vigo) · el 21 de abril, 2017

El próximo viernes 21 de abril desde las 15:00 a las 16:30 tendrá lugar el seminario de comunicaciones cuánticas impartido por el profesor Norbert Lütkenhaus del Institute for Quantum Computing (Universidad de Waterloo, Canada).

Norbert Lütkenhaus studied at the Rheinisch-Westfälische Technische Hochschule Aachen (RWTH Aachen) and the Ludwig Maximilian University (LMU) of Munich, from which he graduated with a thesis in general relativity.

He then changed the field to study quantum optics and quantum cryptography under the supervision of Stephen M. Barnett at the University of Strathclyde, Scotland, UK.

In 1996 he obtained his PhD after postdoctoral positions in Innsbruck (Peter Zoller and Ignacio Cirac) and the Helsinki Institute of Physics (Kalle-Antti Suominen).

He worked for MagiQ Technologies (New York) to initiate the project of commercial realisation of quantum key distribution.

Returning to academia in 2001, he built up and lead an Emmy-Noether Research Group at the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg, during which time he did his habiliation (2004).

Currently he is a Professor at the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) and in the Physics department at the University of Waterloo and runs the Optical Quantum Communication Theory Group.
