PicoQuant is proud to host the third edition of the three day symposium on “Single Photon based Quantum Technologies” from May 22 to 24, 2019 in Berlin, Germany. The event provides an interdisciplinary platform for exchanging experiences and information about latest developments in the field of single photon based quantum technologies.
Eight distinguished scientists from around the world will present their recent work in this field as invited speakers: Benito Alén (CSIC, Spain), Mete Atature (University of Cambridge, UK), Dirk Englund (MIT, USA), Xiaolong Hu (Tianjin University, China), Christophe Marquardt (MPL Erlangen, Germany), Tanja Mehlstäubler (PTB Braunschweig, Germany), Ana Predojevic (Stockholm University, Sweden), and Franco N. C. Wong (MIT, USA).
Contributed oral presentations as well as a poster session round out the symposiums scientific program. A welcome reception provides participants with the opportunity for further discussions with the invited speakers and other attendees. Registration for the 3rd International Symposium on “Single Photon based Quantum Technologies” is open until April 25, 2020.
The first generation of quantum technologies such as transistors, solid-state lighting, lasers, or GPS have dramatically changed the world during the last 50 years. Today, we are paving the way for a second revolution by starting to exploit quantum phenomena such as superposition or entanglement. Breathtaking advances in creating and manipulating dedicated entangled and/or superimposed quantum states will lead to new technologies that promise to change our society in the next 5 to 20 years through revolutionary breakthroughs in imaging, sensing, communication, stimulation, and computation. However, we are still at the beginning of transferring theory into technology in many of the related research fields.
