Photonic Quantum Science and Technologies


Prof. Urbasi Sinha (Raman Research Institute, Bengaluru), a leading researcher in the area of Quantum Information and Computing


Quantum mechanics is a cornerstone of modern physics. Just as the 19th century was called the Machine Age and the 20th century the Information Age, the 21st century promises to go down in history as the Quantum Age. Quantum Computing promises unprecedented speed in solving certain classes of problems while Quantum Cryptography promises unconditional security in communications. In this talk, I will discuss the world of single and entangled photons and also discuss ongoing work towards quantum computing, quantum information and quantum cryptography in our Quantum Information and Computing lab at the Raman Research Institute, Bengaluru.

I will end with our broad vision for the future, which includes establishment of long distance secure quantum communications in India and beyond involving satellite based, fibre based as well as integrated photonics based approaches towards the global quantum internet.

The talk will be live streamed on YouTube:

Ph.D Research Proposal Seminar by Mr. Arul Ganesh

Date: 16 June, 2021
Time: 11:00 - 12:00
Venue: Online Meeting/Video Conferencing

Coordinator: Dean's Office


The Social Political and Educational Management of Uncertainty and co-construction of Value(s)


Following the work of anthropologists, mainly David Graeber, I start with the premise that cultures are organized around values and that values provide the frame for various social actors to coordinate their actions. From that premise I propose to enquire how Mathematics and society co-construct each other through the medium of values. Particularly I propose to look at how Mathematics of uncertainty management and data handling constructs and supports certain value frames and the role of educational spaces in facilitating this. The objective of the enquiry is to gather insights which can help re-imagine Mathematics education/learning such that it doesn't act as a site of reproduction of value systems which exacerbate asymmetries but instead aims to promote equity and justice.
