Prof. Dr. Hugues de Riedmatten


ICREA Professor and Quantum Photonics with Solids and Atoms Group Leader

Hugues de Riedmatten (PhD 2003, University of Geneva) is ICREA professor and head of the Quantum Photonics group at ICFO since 2010. His group's research focuses on building experimental hardware for quantum networks and quantum repeaters, including quantum memories for light, quantum light sources, quantum network nodes and quantum frequency conversion.

He contributed to key milestones in quantum communication technology, including the first demonstrations of long-distance quantum teleportation, and of quantum repeater links using cold atoms and solid-state quantum memories. Hugues is a member of the executive team of the European Quantum Internet Alliance.
