Gerhard Rempe - Quantum Internet: Vision or Fiction?
Prof. Gerhard Rempe, Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, Garching, Germany
Quantum physics allows for applications not possible within classical physics. A prominent example is the quantum computer that, once realized, needs a quantum environment for communication - a quantum internet. The talk will discuss elementary steps with novel protocols towards quantum computation and quantum communication by means of single photons that propagate between quantum memories made of single atoms in optical resonators.
The Distinguished Lecturer Series (DLS) follows a colloquium format for a broad audience and will be followed by a reception to provide an opportunity for meeting the speaker.
