Talks by Matteo Rossi and Carmen porto on Tue 17 Oct

On Tuesday 17 October, at the  Aula Ottica Quantistica (LITA buliding, 5th floor), Matteo rossi and Carmen Porto will deliver their end-of-year seminars as part of their PhD course requirements.

Here is the program:

11:30 Matteo Rossi

“Quantum reinforcement learning  with superconducting circuits: basic protocols and effects of noise”

12:00 Carmen Porto

“Detection of squeezing by on-chip glass-integrated homodyne analyzer”

Alberto Porzio visiting AQM on April 26

Alberto Porzio from the SPIN institute of CNR (Napoli) will be visiting us on Wed 26 April, 2017.

Alberto will deliver a seminar at 12:30 room A5/S2, LITA Building

Encoding and Direct Detection of Continuous Variable Entanglement in the Orbital Angular Momentum Space

CV entangled beams carrying OAM are successfully generated by converting entangled polarization modes into vortex beams. Entanglement is detected by homodyning in the OAM space with the homodyne local oscillator switching between different OAM states.
