Carmen Palacios-Berraquero, Co-founder and CEO, Nu Quantum, will speak on “Transition from current QKD to the internet of the future” at IQT The Hague March 13-15.
Dr. Carmen Palacios-Berraquero is an award-winning Quantum physicist and inventor, and is, this year (2021), listed in Forbes magazine as a ‘Founders Forum Rising Star’.
Carmen is also CEO/Co-Founder of Nu Quantum, a Cambridge University spinout, that develops platforms to generate and detect single-photons at room temperature, harnessing the unique properties of the Third Form of Light. By enabling light to be manipulated at single-photon level, Carmen is making Quantum Photonics a practical, integrable and scalable solution for a range of markets including Quantum Computing and Quantum Security. In 2018, Carmen was awarded the Jocelyn Bell Burnell Medal and Prize (Institute of Physics) which recognises exceptional early career contributions to physics by a female physicist. This was awarded to Carmen for her work on 2D materials and Quantum optics, and for discovering and patenting the unique single-photon source technology which has since been commercialised by Nu Quantum.
A few months later, in 2019, Carmen cofounded Nu Quantum Ltd primarily to commercialise the research she generated over the last decade working at the world-famous Cavendish Laboratory (Department of Physics, University of Cambridge).
Nu Quantum has since received several multi-million-pound government grants to work on projects in collaboration with partners BT Group and Airbus, and on a specific government-backed project to create a Quantum Random Number Generator.
Carmen is an active and committed supporter of pro-equality and anti-discrimination initiatives in STEM. She was recently listed amongst the “Entrepreneurs to Watch” in the latest edition of Optics; Photonics News Magazine.
IQT The Hague 2023 is the eighth global conference and exhibition in the highly successful Inside Quantum Technology series.
The Hague event will focus on Quantum Communications and Quantum Security. Ten vertical topics encompassing more than 40 panels and talks from over 80 speakers will provide attendees with a deep understanding on state-of-the-art developments of the future quantum internet as well as the current impact of quantum-safe technologies on cybersecurity.
