Inaugural Lecture Prof. Dr. Stefanie Barz

Prof. Dr. Barz will have her inaugural lecture on 14.11.2017 at 17:15h Photonic quantum technologies: From foundations to applications

What Prof. Dr. Barz will talk about:

The first quantum revolution allowed us to understand what already existed. It deeply changed our view of the world - it challenged classical physics and our perception of reality. Now, we are in the middle of the second quantum revolution. Isolating and controlling single quantum states has become the basis of a plethora of new technologies - "quantum 2.0" technologies.

In this talk, I will focus on photonic systems and show what role single photons can play in quantum technologies. Starting from very fundamental experiments at the very basis of quantum physics - interference at the few-photon level - I will proceed to explain how to perform quantum tasks with single photons. With the particular example of quantum networks, I will show how photonic quantum systems allow us to gain an advantage over classical systems.

I will illustrate where the challenges of the future lie and how bridging the gap between engineering and physical sciences will allow us to address them - and thus advance quantum research both on the fundamental and the applied side. My talk will also underline that quantum research is a concerted, joint effort of physicists, computer scientists, and engineers.

The future is quantum.

I am looking forward to seeing you at the lecture.
