Reulet to tour Europe with quantum light bulb

Bertrand Reulet, Canada Excellence Research Chair in Quantum Signal Processing at the Université de Sherbrooke, is undertaking a three-stop tour of the European lecture circuit to talk about his research into quantum electromagnetic fields.

Reulet’s first lecture will take place at the Universität Konstanz in Switzerland on May 22, followed by a visit to the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zürich on May 23, and the Polish Academy of Science on May 27.

Reulet will give a presentation titled “The quantum light bulb—how to generate quantum electromagnetic fields with a normal conductor”, in which he will demonstrate the existence of “squeezing” (the ability to shrink fluctuations below that of vacuum) and the emission of pairs of entangled photons, a key property for the use of light for quantum information science.
