Aitor Villar



I completed a 3-year Bachelor at Universitat de les Illes Balears (Mallorca, Spain) as a Technical Engineer (specialized in Telematics). I finished a 5-year Bachelor at Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya (Barcelona, Spain) in Telecom Engineering.

I am currently pursuing a PhD at Centre for Quantum Technologies (National University of Singapore) under the supervision of As. Prof. Alexander Ling. I am part of the science team, led by Dr. Kadir Durak. Our mission is to build an entangled photon source and to demonstrate on a cubesat platform in space, the violation of CHSH (Clauser, Horne, Shimony and Holt) Bell’s inequality. We envisage a source sufficiently bright for direct transfer of photon pairs from satellite to ground (and vice-versa), enabling a global quantum communication network.
