Description

Quantum technologies have seen a tremendous upsurge in recent years. Bell nonlocality, one of the most striking discoveries triggered by quantum theory, has been instrumental in this trend. It states that in some situations measurements of physical systems do not reveal pre-existing properties, but properties are created by the measurement itself.

  • Logical rather than historical interpretation to allow phenomena to speak for themselves
  • Broad coverage, including both technological applications and foundational implications
  • A thorough introduction to a foundation of quantum technology and quantum information science
  • Includes exercises at chapter ends

About the Author(s)

Valerio Scarani, Principal Investigator and Professor, Centre for Quantum Technologies, National University of Singapore

Valerio Scarani was born in Milan in 1972. He graduated from Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne in 1996 and received his doctorate in physics from the same institution in 2000. He then moved to the University of Geneva, where he started working on quantum information science, notably quantum cryptography and Bell nonlocality. In 2007 he joined the National University of Singapore, as a member of the Physics Department and Principal Investigator at the Centre for Quantum Technologies.
