BQIT:21 Virtual Bristol Quantum Information Technologies Workshop 2021, ONLINE

(26-28 APRIL 2021)

BQIT is a three day annual workshop aimed at enabling leading UK and international academics and industrial partners to come together; to explore and discuss future ambitions and challenges in the field of Quantum Information Technologies. Since its conception in 2014 it has had 230 speakers and panellists who have presented their work and opinions on a range of topics, from quantum theory to innovation in industry.

Michael Geiselmann (LIGENTEC Managing Director) will be giving a talk about “Quantum PICs – every photon counts”. In this talk, he will present the low loss silicon nitride platform of LIGENTEC and provide application examples how the photonic integrated circuit can be used to generate entangled states or to propagate single photons.

Registrations closes on the 19th April.

REGISTER NOW for our talk on April 26th at 17:10 CEST.
