On the occasion of the celebration of the 90th anniversary of the birth of the Italian physicist Tito Arecchi, QTI, in partnership with the CNR-INO, organised the exclusive workshop “From Quantum Astronomy to Quantum Communications” on 18-19 December 2023 in Florence
The 2023 has been a flourishing year for national governmental quantum initiatives and a number of national quantum strategies have been adopted. This blog post aims to investigate these Strategies’ content and how QKD technology is addressed.
Randomness is involved in different domains of modern society. It is a very complicated concept, that has been vastly exploited using techniques coming from classical physics, which is a deterministic theory. Quantum technologies can solve this problem because quantum mechanics is intrinsically probabilistic, that is the behaviour of quantum systems exhibits inherent randomness.
Quantum computers exploit the laws of quantum mechanics to perform calculations, in principle, substantially faster than classical computers. The security of today’s cryptography will potentially be broken, in the next future, by the upcoming quantum machines.
The possibility of explicitly addressing, controlling, and detecting individual quantum systems has led to the Second Quantum Revolution.
