Stefano Pirandola (CEO and Founder)
World-recognized expert in quantum communication, security and networks.
Among other contributions, Prof Pirandola:
pioneered the “continuous variable” (high-rate) formulation of quantum information
established the ultimate capacities for quantum communication and entanglement distribution
designed the optimal routing strategies for quantum networks with arbitrary topology
advanced the hybrid model of quantum internet
introduced the first end-to-end protocols for quantum cryptography
derived rigorous security proofs for quantum key distribution (fiber, free-space, satellite)
developed tools for teleportation, entanglement distillation & quantum computing optimization.
Sam Braunstein (quantum guru)
Prof Braunstein is widely recognized as one of the founding fathers of the entire field of quantum information and computation.
Among his many seminal contributions, he contributed to introduce and develop quantum teleportation with continuous variables, designed quantum teleportation networks, pioneered the field of quantum metrology, and introduced the first bosonic model for universal quantum computing.
