Quantum communications

The team of Experimental Quantum Communications in York has recently been awarded funding from the
Quantum Communications Hub for a project to investigate and develop Twin-Field Quantum Key Distribution
(TF-QKD), a novel technique to dramatically extend the QKD transmission range.
The research associate will work in a stimulating environment in brand new labs and with expert colleagues to
achieve the goals of the project through a curiosity-driven approach.

A joint team from the Departments of Electronic Engineering and Physics at University of York, UK, are currently developing research activities on free-space quantum communications systems, which have so far included funded feasibility studies and phased experimental demonstrations.

Announcement for a faculty position (RTD-A) at the University of Padova - DEI.
The candidate shall operate within the QuantumFuture Research Group on mainly experimental topics in Quantum Optics and Information, with a focus on Quantum Communications in Space and ground links, Quantum random number generators and the fundaments of Quantum Physics.

Quantum Communications for ALL (QCALL) is a European Innovative Training Network that endeavours to take the next necessary steps to bring the developing quantum technologies closer to the doorsteps of end users. QCALL will empower a nucleus of 15 doctoral researchers in this area to provide secure communications in the European continent and, in the long run, to its connections worldwide.

A fixed-term post-graduate / post-doctoral position is available until the end of March 2021 in the Department of Physics, to work in the group of Professor Tim Spiller, on an Innovate UK- funded project to design and build prototype research-led receivers for satellite QKD.
