Ebrahim Karimi


University of Ottawa

Prof. Ebrahim Karimi holds the Canada Research Chair in Structured Quantum Waves. His research focuses on structured quantum waves and their applications in quantum communication, quantum computation, and materials science. His contributions notably include studies pertaining to the relationship between the quantum spatial properties of photons and electrons, and their internal properties. He is a Fellow of the Optica, a member of the Global Young Academy, a member of the College of New Scholars, Artists and Scientists of the Royal Society of Canada, Visiting Fellow of the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light Erlangen-Germany, and a Fellow of uOttawa Joint Centre for Extreme Photonics. For his achievements in structured quantum waves, he received the 2018 Ontario Early Researcher Award, the 2019 uOttawa Early Career Researcher of the Year Award, and the 2020 Herzberg Medal from the Canadian Association of Physicists.

Talk Description

Beyond Qubit with Structured Photons

Photons, the quanta of light, possess several different degrees of freedom, e.g., frequency, polarisation, and spatial and temporal modes, which can be used as platforms for quantum information applications. Polarisation, corresponding to the vectorial nature of light, is bi-dimensional, and thus can represent ‘0’ and ‘1’ in the digital world. Unlike polarisation, transverse and temporal modes would provide an unbonded vector space and could be used to extend the quantum information alphabet beyond the ‘0’s and ‘1’s to any arbitrary integer numbers. Photons in superposition states of these different degrees of freedom are known as Structured Photons. In my talk, I will discuss the application of structured photons in high-dimensional quantum key distribution, quantum hacking, and simulating complex quantum systems.
