Seminar: Entangled Photons for Quantum Information Applications
Entangled Photons for Quantum Information Applications
by Paulina Kuo, National Institute of Standards and Technology
Abstract: The current excitement surrounding quantum information revolves around exploration of quantum entanglement. Dr. Kuo will discuss applications of quantum entanglement including its use for the generation of random numbers. Entanglement is produced during the nonlinear optical process of spontaneous parametric down-conversion (SPDC). Dr. Kuo will describe efforts to generate and characterize polarization entangled photons produced by SPDC. These entangled photon pairs are important building blocks for quantum information applications.
Event is open to the public and co-hosted by Prof. Ronald Reano.
