Professor Timothy Spiller (University of York)
Quantum technologies are new disruptive technologies in which fundamental aspects of quantum physics are instrumental in providing advantages over the conventional technology counterparts. Examples include quantum computing, sensing, imaging and communications; I'll outline examples and illustrate their "quantum advantage", before discussing quantum communications in more detail. I'll give a very brief overview of what is being pursued in the UK National Quantum Technologies Programme, and then expand on the technologies being delivered by the Quantum Communications Hub.
What is the Schuster Colloquium?
The Schuster Colloquium is organised by the School of Physics and Astronomy at The University of Manchester. It takes place about half a dozen times per academic year and is a School-wide event targeting everyone ranging from the undergraduate to staff level. The aim is to inspire us about Physics while learning about exciting new scientific developments, regardless of one's area of expertise. The colloquia are therefore meant to be accessible to everyone, and students are particularly encouraged to attend.
