Aim and Purpose

About a century ago, the theory of quantum mechanics was born. By virtue of its extraordinary explanatory power this theory has not only dramatically changed to the way we see the world, but also led to a first quantum revolution that has brought us groundbreaking new technologies such as the transistor, solid-state lighting, lasers, and GPS.

QIRG: Quantum Internet Research Group

Summary: 

The IRTF conducts work in what are known as Research Groups. Its goal is to bring the best networking research to the attention of the IETF so that it can be incorporated into Internet design and operation. The IRTF, has created a Quantum Internet Research Group.

1,200 people are gathered in London right now for the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF, ietf.org) meeting that happens thrice a year. IETF's sister organization, the Internet Research Task Force (IRTF, irtf.org) generally meets with them. IRTF conducts work both in person and online, via mailing lists, in what are known as Research Groups. IRTF is *pre-standardization*; any RFCs (Request for Comments documents in formal form) are either Experimental or Informational.

New EU Report on Quantum Communication

Summary: 

New report assess the impact of Quantum Communication technologies on EU's future policies

A new Scientific and Technical Research Report (EUR) has been published that details how the current and future Quantum Communication technologies should impact EU's policies.

The full report (which is 85 pages long) can be downloaded here.

ZEISS Symposium "Optics in the Quantum World"

Date: 
2018-04-18
Place: 
Oberkochen, Germany

Quantum effects are in use since the 20th century and have led to market shaping innovations like semiconductor electronics and lasers. In the 21st century, quantum technology developments focus on the controlled quantum state of individual or coupled systems. While this quantum technology is still in the research stage, it offers an enormous potential and a number of initiatives worldwide have been formed to foster the technology and its commercial potential.
