Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


The European Space Agency (ESA) has for several years supported a range of studies in the ?eld of quantum physics and quantum information science in space, and consequently we have submitted the mission proposal Space-QUEST (QUantum Entanglement for Space ExperimenTs) to the European Life and Physical Sciences in Space Program. We propose performing quantum communciation space-to- ground tests from the International Space Station (ISS). We present the proposed experiments in space as well as the design of a space based quantum communication payload.
