Lecture Hall III
One of the major challenges for future quantum information technology is to establish a global quantum network, where different quantum systems are coupled via fiber-based single-photon channels. In such a quantum network, the analog of a bit in a classical computer, the quantum bit, has to be transferred to its optical counterpart, which is a single photon.
In her inaugural lecture, Annika Kurzmann will describe the main components and interfaces before discussing two-dimensional (2D) materials as a promising material platform for a quantum network.
