Huguesde Riedmatten, Group Leader in Quantum Optics, Institute of Photonic Sciences (ICFO), is the keynote speaker for Topic Keynote: The Prospects for a Quantum Repeater at IQT The Hague March 13-15.
A member of the European Quantum Internet Alliance Executive Team, Hugues de Riedmatten is an ICREA Research Professor and group leader in quantum optics at the Institute of Photonic Sciences (ICFO) in Barcelona since 2010. He obtained a Masters in Physics from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL) in 1999, and a PhD in experimental quantum optics from the University of Geneva in 2003, for his work on long distance quantum communication in optical fiber. He was then postdoctoral scholar at Caltech, where he worked on linitial demonstrations of quantum networks with cold cold atomic ensembles and single photons. In 2006, he was appointed senior researcher at the Univ. of Geneva, where he led the solid state quantum memory activities. He has published more than 90 articles in peer-reviewed journals and has given over 60 talks, both in international conferences and in invited seminars. He was the recipient of the Barcelona City Prize 2017, of an ERC Starting Grant and of a Frontier Research grant from the US Moore Foundation.
IQT The Hague 2023 is the eighth global conference and exhibition in the highly successful Inside Quantum Technology series.
The Hague event will focus on Quantum Communications and Quantum Security. Ten vertical topics encompassing more than 40 panels and talks from over 80 speakers will provide attendees with a deep understanding on state-of-the-art developments of the future quantum internet as well as the current impact of quantum-safe technologies on cybersecurity.
Sandra K. Helsel, Ph.D. has been researching and reporting on frontier technologies since 1990. She has her Ph.D. from the University of Arizona.
