Student Colloquium, Nitesh Khatiwada: The Quantum Doppelgänger: Quantum Cloning and Implications for Faster-Than-Light Communication
Info about event
Supervisor: Aurelien Dantan
In 1982, a peer-reviewed paper raised the audacious idea that Faster-Than-Light (FTL) communication could be achieved through the peculiarities of quantum entanglement and quantum cloning. This notion, however, faced a glaring paradox as it seemingly contradicted Einstein's theory of relativity. Quantum cloning, a captivating and contentious topic within quantum physics, carries profound implications for secure communication and poses intriguing questions about the nature of quantum reality. In this presentation, I will take the audience on a journey into the enigmatic realm of quantum cloning and delves into its potential ramifications for quantum communication. Furthermore, we will together explore the potential for FTL communication, unlocking the mysteries surrounding this remarkable aspect of quantum physics.
