Secrets and Lights

Presented by: Dr. Rachel Oliver

The Courtyard, 26B Windhill.  CM23 2NG


What is light and how can we use it to share information securely? This talk discusses the dual wave-particle nature of light, and explains how light particles and basic principles of quantum physics can facilitate secure exchange of information. Rather special light sources are needed to make cryptography using single light particles work, exploiting tiny crystals 10,000 times smaller than the width of a human hair.





Rachel Oliver has developed a number of single photon emitting devices with unique properties as part of her research into the properties and performance of nitride semiconductors at the very small scale. She is also interested in some brighter light sources, such as light emitting diodes for energy efficient light bulbs, and in all forms of microscopy. She is passionate about communicating science and is an enthusiastic advocate for the advancement of women's careers in the physical sciences.
