Quantum Communications for ALL (QCALL)

Start date: Dec 1, 2016, End date: Nov 30, 2020,

... QC) is well-known for its offering ultra-secure cryptographic key-exchange schemes—resilient to any future technological advancement. QCALL will empower a nucleus of researchers in this area to provide secure communications in our continent and, in the long run, to our connections worldwide. With the large scale violations of privacy in the EU exchange of information, this is a crucial moment to p ...

Simulators and Interfaces with Quantum Systems (SIQS)

Start date: May 1, 2013, End date: Apr 30, 2016,

The overarching goal of our project is to develop systems based on direct and deterministic interactions between individual quantum entities, which by involving large-scale entanglement can outperform classical systems in a series of relevant applications.We plan to achieve that by improving technologies from atomic, molecular and optical physics as well as from solid-state physics, and by develop ...

Quantum Key Distribution Certification (Q-CERT)

Start date: Jun 1, 2010, End date: May 31, 2014,

... a practical quantum key distribution protocol : key distillation. We will specify and then develop a software library of key distillation that will present a very high-level of security assurance, validated by the use of formal methods for cryptographic protocol verification. This library will in particular include a state-of-the-art error correction module, based on unidirectional LDPC codes. In ...

... ith entangled photon pair sources that couple the Quantum memories to fibre optic communication systems. The proof of principle has been shown for all aspects of this approach and QuRep now aims to bridge the gap between fundamental research and industrial projects. The main technological result of the QuRep project will be a quantum repeater. The outcome of the QuREP project will serve as the bas ...

Materials for Avalanche Receiver for ultImate SEnsitivity (MARISE)

Start date: May 1, 2008, End date: Jul 31, 2011,

Avalanche photodiodes are key components for many applications (telecom, ranging, sensing, spectroscopy,...) because their internal gain improves the photoreceiver sensitivity considerably. Two III-V materials of interest have emerged: AlGaAs and AlInAs, lattice-matched to GaAs and InP, respectively, and both characterised by a wide bandgap. In recent years, a breakthrough in the impact ionisation ...
