Principles and advances in quantum communication – 10 October
Please Register HERE for the event!
On Thursday 10 October, we will have the second casual French Lab meeting: AFTER LAB!
On this occasion, Emilien Lavie, a PhD student at the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the National University of Singapore will come and give a speech on quantum technologies.
The talk will review current needs and solutions for secure communication, and highlight a new emerging technology: Quantum cryptography through one main application that is Quantum Key Distribution (QKD).
QKD can in theory offer means for unbreakable cryptography, therefore achieving the fantasy of many cryptographers.
We will give some intuition about the working principles and promises, describe common designs, current achievements, implementation issues and talk about what is still left for future development.
Emilien Lavie obtained a master degree in communication engineering from Telecom ParisTech and is now a first year PhD student at the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the National University of Singapore, under the supervision of Asst. Prof. Charles Ci Wen Lim. His research interests concern design and security proof of quantum communication protocols.
We will meet at the Orh Gao – Serene Centre, Botanic Garden at 7pm, with fresh beers just two minutes away from the MRT station!
Emilien Lavie will give his speech at the very start of our meeting!
