Staff members of the Laboratory of Quantum Processes and Measurements have found the cause of errors that occur on subcarrier frequencies in quantum key distribution (QKD) systems – as well as a way to eliminate it. Their research was in Optics Express.
Scientists of International Institute of Photonics and Optoinformatics at ITMO University won the Ministry of Science and Education Grant
At the end of December 2019, the results of scientific projects bid carried out by teams of research centers and scientific laboratories of higher educational institutions subordinate to the Russian Ministry of Education and Science were summed up. The project developed by scientists from the International Institute of Photonics and Optoinformatics of ITMO University won this competition. The project “Quantum dynamics and correlation measurements of multimode photonic systems and topologically non-trivial polarization states” has received the status “performed within the framework of the state assignment in the field of science”, with appropriate funding from the federal budget.
