Practical Optical Ground Station Receivers for Satellite-Based Quantum Communications

Prize: Fellowship awarded competitively


Creating a global quantum network is an important task for quantum communications. Global connection via low-earth-orbit satellites is seen as the fastest route. Dr Donaldson’s research investigates new photonic technology to enable practical optical receivers that can communicate with satellites, which is crucial to expanding the ground segment.
