On March 13, Anton Zeilinger will speak about “Quantum Communication”. After more than two decades of research, quantum communication has now reached a rather advanced level. Zeilinger will give an overview of the current state with a focus on quantum communication with individual photons. Early experiments have confirmed that unconditionally secure quantum cryptography is possible. The most recent experiments included long-distance quantum teleportation. All these developments clearly point towards a future quantum internet. Zeilinger is a professor of physics at the University of Vienna, group leader at the Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information, and president of the Austrian Academy of Sciences.
