  • Kopichat Da Bao #4 With SpeQtral's CTO, Dr Robert Bedington

    August 28, 2019  3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

    Venue: At your DESK

    An Honest Conversation with MIT named 'Innovator under 35', Dr Robert Bedington.

    Dr Robert Bedington is the co-founder and CTO of SpeQtral, a spin out company from the NUS Centre for Quantum Technologies that is developing quantum communication technologies for satellites. A former researcher at NUS he was the engineering team lead of the SpooQySat mission that is currently demonstrating quantum entanglement in space on board a 3U CubeSat.

    Join us in this Kopi Chat Da Bao to extract insights and tips from Dr Robert's experience.

    KopiChat Dabao is hosted by BLOCK71, an initiative of NUS Enterprise. A monthly global engagement with tried & tested entrepreneurs around the world. Here, we go rogue, where YOU get to ask these entrepreneurs honest, heartfelt questions about their journey to the top.

    Da Bao: Colloquial term (hokkien) for take-away.

    Title: Novel avenues for robust free-space quantum communications

    Quantum information processing and quantum communication are novel protocols that originate from the very fundamental and philosophical questions on superposition and entanglement raised since the early days of quantum mechanics. Strikingly, these new protocols offer capabilities beyond communication task possible with classical physics. One very important example is the secure key exchange based on the transmission of individual quantum signals between communication partners. The big vision and frontier in the field of quantum communication research is the development of a Quantum Internet, which establishes entanglement between many different users and devices. The basic idea is that similar to today’s internet, the Quantum Internet will readily transfer quantum bits, rather than today’s classical bits, between users near and far and over multiple different channels and could be used for secure communications, quantum computer networks and metrological applications. I will discuss recent advances on implementations and tools useful for generating and distributing photonic quantum entanglement over robust channels including. time-bin encoding and reference-frame-free protocols. I will also present an overview of the upcoming Canadian quantum communication satellite QEYSSAT.
