Saikat Guha, Director of the NSF Engineering Research Center for Quantum Networks, University of Arizona; will speak at IQT The Hague March 13-15.
Saikat Guha is a Professor at the University of Arizona, College of Optical Sciences, starting July 2017. He is also the Director of the NSF Engineering Research Center for Quantum Networks (CQN). Saikat received his Bachelor of Technology degree in Electrical Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur in 1998, and his S.M. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2004 and 2008, respectively. From 2008 to 2017, he worked for Raytheon BBN Technologies, where in his most recent role as Lead Scientist, he led various sponsored projects funded by DARPA, ONR, NSF, DoE, and ARL, in topics surrounding quantum enhanced photonic information processing. He was one of the founding members of the Quantum Information Processing group at BBN, formed in 2009.
Saikat’s research interests are in the quantum limits of optical communications and quantum-secured communications (rate) and optical sensing (resolution)—both in the evaluations of these fundamental limits using tools from quantum information and estimation theory, as well as in the associated circuit synthesis problem, that of trying to piece together familiar classical and non-classical optical building blocks to realize transmitters and receivers needed to attain those limits. He is interested in the design of quantum repeaters for long-distance entanglement distribution. He has also been lately interested in continuous variable photonic quantum computing, and quantum networks.
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.
Sandra K. Helsel, Ph.D. has been researching and reporting on frontier technologies since 1990. She has her Ph.D. from the University of Arizona.
