Ronald Hanson, Chair of the Dutch National Agenda, Quantum Technology; to Present Opening Keynote for IQT Europe Oct 27 @ 12:45 CET (7:45 A.M.)
(IQT.Europe) Ronald Hanson, Chair of the Dutch National Agenda, Quantum Technology; has agreed to present Opening Keynote to IQT Europe October 27at 12:45 CET (7:45 A.M.). Ronald Hanson focusses on exploring and controlling quantum-entangled states with the long-term goal of exploiting these in future quantum technologies such as quantum computing and quantum internet. His research combines quantum optics, solid-state physics, nuclear magnetic resonance, quantum information theory and nanofabrication. In 2014 his group made headlines by teleporting quantum data between electrons on distant solid-state chips. In 2015 he ended a decades-long scientific quest by performing the first loophole-free Bell test. In 2018 his group achieved the important milestone of generating quantum entanglement faster than it got lost. In the coming years he aims to build on these results to demonstrate the fundamentals of a future quantum internet, with a rudimentary network planned between several cities in the Netherlands.
Ronald is one of the four founding professors of QuTech (2013). He obtained his MSc degree in Applied Physics at the University of Groningen (1999), followed by a year in Japan. He obtained his PhD degree (cum laude) at Delft University of Technology in 2005 with Leo Kouwenhoven. After a postdoc at the University of California in Santa Barbara with David Awschalom, he started his own research group at Delft, where he was appointed Antoni van Leeuwenhoek Professor in 2012.
Ronald has received several awards for his work, among which the Ammodo KNAW Award (2015), the Huibregtsen Award for Excellence in Science and Society (2016), the John Stewart Bell Prize (2017). In 2019 he received the Spinoza Prize, the highest scientific award in the Netherlands. He has been elected member of the Royal Holland Society of Sciences and Humanities (KHMW) since 2018 and of the Dutch Royal Academy of Sciences (KNAW) since 2019.
