Getting the word out: QuantIC researchers at quantum conferences this month

QuantIC academics Professors Miles Padgett, Daniele Faccio and Robert Hadfield will be speaking at international Quantum conferences taking place in Europe this week.

Professors at QuantIC

Professors Padgett and Faccio will be running a special session on Photonic quantum technology where they will be presenting their research on single photon counting and ghost imaging at the Foundations of Quantum Mechanics and Technology (FQMT), the international conference devoted to quantum theory, experiment and technology at Linnaeus University in Växjö, Sweden.

Also speaking this week, QuantIC’s Professor Robert Hadfield will be giving a keynote presentation at the International Superconductive Electronics Conference (ISEC 2017) in Sorrento, Italy, where he will speak on the development of superconducting nanowire single photon detectors as a leading edge infrared photon counting technology, progress in the scale-up to large area imaging arrays and advances in miniaturized cooling technology.

The Hub will also be showcasing some of its technology demonstrators at Laser World of Photonics in Munich at the end of the month. All in all, June is looking like a busy month for QuantIC!
