Our recent demonstration of local and scalable detection of genuine multipartite single-photon path entanglement has been published in Quantum. We construct a scalable entanglement witness that can be implemented with local measurements only, and experimentally demonstrate its applicability on an 8-partite single-photon path-entangled state.

The INSPIRE Potentials QSIT Master Internship Award was awarded to Hanan Jaffal by NCCR QSIT. The award aims to encourage excellent women students to carry out their Master's thesis in a laboratory belonging to the NCCR QSIT network, so aiming to increase the number of women researchers in areas such as single photon detectors and other quantum technologies.

Our new results are now out in Nature! We demonstrate a new system based on the concept of “zero-knowledge proofs”, the security of which is based on the physical principle of relativity, that allows for secure data transfer.

Our results from recent experiments on the limits of integrating quantum key distribution (QKD) into existing classical networks have been published in Applied Physics Letters! QKD has already become commercially available recently, however, it is still a challenge to integrate QKD into existing classical networks due to noise introduced by the other signals. In our article we studied how a state-of-the art QKD system can be combined into an existing network.
