Max Planck Gesellschaft zur Förderung der Wissenschaften e.V. (MPG)

Max-Planck Institute for the Science of Light in Erlangen, started only a few years ago, is already one of the leading world centers in the field of photonics and especially quantum optics. Directly involved into BRISQ2 is the Quantum Radiation (QuaRad) experimental group led by Dr. M.Chekhova. The group was formed in 2009 and it specializes in the generation and applications of nonclassical light.

Istituto Nazionale di Ricerca Metrologica (INRIM)

INRIM is a national research institute devoted to research in metrology and innovative technologies (Quantum Information, nanotechnologies, ferromagnetic materials, artificial vision etc.). The quantum optics research program of INRIM, led by Dr. M. Genovese, has developed large experience in the field of quantum information and, generally, well established international experience in quantum optics. It disposes of seven laboratories equipped with various laser sources, optics and electronics, which will represent the basis for developing the present work.

M. V. Lomonosov Moscow State University (MSU)

The Lomonosov University is one of the leading universities in Russia, and its Department of Physics has traditionally strong school in nonlinear and quantum optics. The group led by Prof. S.P. Kulik follows these traditions. It has more than 20 years of research experience in quantum-information science, which includes pioneering experimental studies of the generation and detection of nonclassical light states, as well as their application to communication and precision measurements.

Univerzita Palackeho v Olomouci (PALACKY)

The Department of Optics of UPOL has a long tradition in theoretical quantum optics. The activities of the department address three main topics of investigation: single-photon quantum information processing (theoretical and experimental), continuous variable quantum information processing with light and atoms (theoretical), and quantum non-classicality, correlations and entanglement (theoretical). The group involved into BRISQ2 is led by Dr. R. Filip and has more than 10 years of experience in theoretical research.

Uniwersytet Gdanski (GDANSK)

The University of Gdansk is one of the world leading centers of quantum information. In particular, the team led by Prof. M. Żukowski has many years of experience in studying non-classical properties of various physical systems, in particular collections of few photonic qubits. The experience of the Gdańsk Team is focused around Bell’s inequalities and various quantifiers of entanglement. Apart from introducing new indicators of non-classicality the team also studies their behaviour under experimental imperfections such as dephasing or non-unity detection efficiency.
