Institut national de la recherche scientifique Professor Roberto Morandotti has received almost $2M in NSERC funding to lead a project on quantum communication. Morandotti will lead a team of scientists from Canada and Europe on the HyperSpace project, which aims to develop a quantum communication network between continents. The project will focus on research on integrated quantum photonics and optical space communications. Partners involved in the project include the University of Toronto and the University of Waterloo, as well as several institutes and universities from countries across Europe. “This collaboration will allow us to take quantum communication research to a whole new level and to solve together technological challenges whose results will benefit society,” said Morandotti.
