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.

Researchers from the University of Geneva have developed a new quantum method for generating random numbers
May 26, 2017, 2:32 PM
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.
Demonstration of EPR Steering Using Single-Photon Path Entanglement and Displacement-Based Detection
Oct 3, 2016, 1:10 PM
Our paper demonstrating the violation of an Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen steering inequality developed for single-photon path entanglement with displacement-based detection has been published in Physical Review Letters. We use a high-rate source of heralded single-photon path-entangled states, combined with high-efficiency superconducting-based detectors, in a scheme that is free of any post-selection and thus immune to the detection loophole. This result conclusively demonstrates single-photon…
