EPIC Online Technology Meeting on Satellite Quantum Communication
Online Event


Free Event


Within the panorama of quantum technologies, quantum communications hold a prominent place. A satellite-based system is one of the most effective strategies to ensure quantum-secure key distribution at very long distances and the realization of a large scale-quantum network. Such technology pushes the photonics industry to its limits by incorporating state-of-the-art laser systems, optics and photonic detection schemes. This meeting gathers the key players in the related supply chain. Moreover, we will target supporting collaborations and creating business opportunities in the quantum-enhanced communication field.

Spirit of the meetings

During these online technology meetings, we are looking for the challenges the industry is facing and bringing together the entire supply chain to address these challenges. Bringing together end-users with component suppliers and system integrators that will answer the EPIC question “What can you do for them and what can they do for you” creates the perfect foundation to establish new business relationships and find ways for new collaborations and partnerships.

Speakers

PhD in theoretical physics, Laurent has worked as System Engineer in quantum telecom at Thales Alenia Space since July 2020. Working on space-based quantum information and quantum cryptography. Before that, he was Software Engineer and Project Manager at ACRI-ST, working on Sentinel-3 mission for Earth and climate studies. He has improved and developed remote sensing algorithms based on radiative transfer models and inversion methods.
Before being an Engineer, he was Assistant Researcher in the field of ultracold atoms and condensed matter theory. His research activities focused on strongly correlated systems in atomic and molecular gases loaded on optical lattices. These systems are governed by extended Bose-Hubbard Hamiltonians which he mainly tackled with exact numerical methods such as quantum Monte Carlo method and exact diagonalization.
Laurent has obtained his PhD at the University Côte d'Azur in 2012 and has pursued in postdoc at Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon, and at the University of Freiburg (Humboldt Fellow) until 2018.
