Associate Professor (Research)
My research interest is quantum communication and quantum entanglement.
We realized 200 km decoy based quantum key distribution (QKD) system, which is the longest decoy based QKD system. We for the first time faithfully realized measurement device independent (MDI) QKD, making QKD practically secure. We are working on new quantum communication protocols, such as quantum bit commitment, quantum data locking. Our works are reported by Science, Physics, etc. MDI QKD is selected as one of the Highlights of the year 2013 by APS.
Cao Yuan, male, born in August 1983.
Obtained a doctorate in November 2012 at the University of Science and Technology of China and in the same year in the school began postdoctoral research work. In 2016, I became an associate researcher. Mainly engaged in the experimental research on free-space quantum communication and spaceborne high brightness quantum entangled source. Recent major interest in the direction of new technology of quantum optics, quantum entanglement source, and the fundamental issue of quantum mechanics.
