Lunch & Learn Sessions

Lunch & Learn: April 13

1:30 pm - 1:50 pm Quantum network applications: the short and the long term.

Marc Kaplan - CEO, VeriQloud

This talk will present VeriQloud’s views on quantum communication networks. In particular, I will discuss the different applications that become available as new hardware components are added to quantum networks. For example, secure quantum cloud computing, unforgeable authentication tokens, or lifelong secure storage systems all rely on the ability to communication quantum systems, but use very different types of hardware. We will present these applications from the point of view of end-users, showing what problems they solve, and at which stage of quantum network developments.

myQLM is a freeware python package developed by Atos that provides quantum circuit creation and simulation tools to researchers, students, developers, and more generally tech enthusiasts. Anyone can explore the capabilities of quantum computing with myQLM, from experimenting with programming to launching simulations of up to 20 qubits directly on their own computer and even larger by connecting to an Atos QLM. 

During this session, Xavier Geoffret will explain where to find myQLM, how to install it and write your first quantum circuits. To go further, online documentation and tutorials will be also presented, as well as community support tools such as opensource contributions and community forums.

2:10 pm - 2:30 pm The quantum industry’s single-photon problem

Carmen Palacios-Berraquero - Co-Founder & CEO, Nu Quantum

There are currently no perfect ways of generating and detecting single-photons - or at least none perfectly-suited to each specific commercial application. The single-photon problem is sorely felt in parts of the industry, and hence the rapid development of adequate single-photon components can make a huge difference to a range of photonics quantum technologies from communication to computing. 

I will talk at a high-level about the technologies currently available, the metrics used, the needs of parts of the PQ industry, and the potential impact of the development. 

I will finish with a quick overview of Nu Quantum. Nu Quantum is a spin-out of the Cavendish Laboratory at the University of Cambridge, developing a portfolio of novel room temperature quantum components: a single-photon source, a single-photon detector and a photonic-based quantum random number generator based.
