Genuine quantum nonlocality in networks published in PRL. The quantum "triangle network" allows for novel forms of quantum nonlocality, potentially very different from known ones. This is joint work with Marc-Olivier Renou and Nicolas Gisin from GAP, Elisa Bäumer from ETH Zurich, Sadra Boreiri from EPFL and Salman Beigi from IPM Teheran. To know more check the excellent Viewpoint article in APS Physics by Matt Pusey.

Participation to EU Quantum Flagship. The group will take part in the project QRANGE, one of the 20 projects selected for the first phase of the QF. The project will investigate quantum random number generation. It is lead by Hugo Zbinden (UNIGE), and gathers researchers from 10 research groups in Switzerland, Spain, Belgium, Italy and Germany.

Our recent paper in Physical Review Applied demonstrates a new quantum random number generator which is simple to implement and achieves high bit rates, yet requires almost no trust in the devices used, leading to strongly improved security.
