Programme



General Info

The Trento-Innsbruck Quantum Information Tour is coming to its third edition.
The event will have a focus on Bose-Einstein Condensation, Nanoscience, Quantum Optics and Quantum Information. The language of the talks will be English.
Students will be given lectures on forefront theoretical and experimental research in this fields by academics and prominent figures in Trento and Innsbruck environment.

The event will start in Trento with the visit to the University nanosciences and photonics labs.
On Tuesday students will be hosted in the morning by Bruno Kessler Foundation and in the afternoon will be guided through the BEC nanoscience labs.
The following day participants will move to Innsbruck to visit the Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information.
The morning of the final day will be spent at the Physics Department of Innsbruck University. After lunch a private bus will take to Trento participants who need to return there.

You can find the detailed program below, which will be constantly updated

    dott. Davide Pastorello
    Hybrid quantum-classical algorithms for solving optimization problems
    The hybrid approach to quantum computing combines quantum operations and classical processing to maximize the efficiency of existing quantum hardware. In this talk I will present an overview on hybrid quantum-classical algorithms and some recent results in this area about quantum annealing and adiabatic quantum computing.

    prof. Lorenzo Pavesi
    Quantum Science and Technologies: a successful example
    Starting from the second quantum revolution, the key ingredients of quantum physics essential for developing new kind of devices are discussed. A specific example of device in quantum security will be described.
    dott. Stefano Azzini
    Single particle entanglement: where quantum and classical physics clashes
    During the talk a definition of entanglement and the methods to assess the entanglement will be described. By using the single particle entanglement, the inherent differences between classical physics and quantum physics (non-locality and contestuality) well be derived.
    dott. Stefano Signorini
    Heralded single photon sources: who, where, what, when and why
    The sources of entangled two photons and of heralded single photons are described to show the advantages of integrated quantum photonics and where the field is evolving.
