In my talk I will introduce an emergent field of quantum (information) technologies. In order to appreciate better the transformative potential of quantum technologies I will explain basic principles of non-relativistic quantum physics. In particular, I will describe in detail two phenomena: quantum superpositions and a quantum entanglement. On the top of this quantum measurements will be discussed in some detail. I will briefly present two examples of quantum technologies, namely, the quantum computer and quantum- key-distribution schemes. Finally, I will present some key results obtained at RCQI and will introduce the national platform QUTE.SK.
Prof. Dr. Vladimír Bužek, DrSc. graduated from the Moscow State University (both MSc and PhD in 1982 and 1985, respectively). His research interests have been focused primarily on theoretical quantum optics and quantum information sciences. He is best known for his work on reconstruction of quantum states and processes from incomplete experimental data, programmable quantum processors, quantum cloning, novel algorithms for quantum secret sharing and quantum voting protocols. Altogether he published more than 230 research papers and 15 chapters in books that were cited in scientific literature more than 16 000 times (h-index 61). He works at the Institute of Physics, Slovak Academy of Sciences. Over years he has been a visiting professor at a number of academic institutions including the Imperial College, London (UK), National University of Ireland, Maynooth (Ireland), University of Ulm (Germany), SOKEN (Japan), University of Queensland (Australia), Sogang University (South Korea), INAOE Mexico, Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, etc. Prof. Bužek was the president of the Learned Society of the Slovak Academy of Sciences, he is a foreign corresponding member of the Austrian Academy of Sciences and a member of the Academia Europaea.
