Colloquium @CBPF: Paulo Henrique Souto Ribeiro — 30.09, 16hPosted: September 29, 2014
Paulo H. S. Ribeiro, known to everyone as Paulão, is one of the most important figures for the quantum information community in Brazil. Paulão is the head (the arm, the leg, the heart!) of the Quantum Optics Laboratory at Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. His lab draws from close collaboration with the theoretical part of the quantum information group at UFRJ to be one of most well known groups in Brazil and worldwide.
Actually, one of the “secrets” of the quantum info group at UFRJ is that there is no such sharp distinction between theory and experiment. Of course at the end of the day there are those who will go align the mirrors and detectors, and those who will solve integrals and apply Cauchy-Schwartz whereever they can, but must of the times they are all mingled together, and the discussions fly high!
I can say that from first…
