  • Salavrakos, Alexia (Date of defense: 26-03-2019)
    The technological era that we live in is sometimes described as the Information Age. Colossal amounts of data are generated every day and considerable effort is put into creating technologies to process, store and transmit ...
  • Baccari, Flavio (Date of defense: 17-05-2019)
    Quantum physics is arguably both the most successful and the most counterintuitive physical theory of all times. Its extremely accurate predictions on the behaviour of microscopic particles have led to unprecedented ...
  • Sainz, Ana Belén (Date of defense: 10-02-2014)
    In the past century, experimental discoveries have witnessed phenomena in Nature which challenge our everyday classical intuition. In order to explain these facts, quantum theory was developed, which so far has been able ...
  • Supic, Ivan (Date of defense: 19-09-2018)
    The last two decades have been a very fruitful period for the fundamental research related to quantum information theory. Today we have a fairly good understanding of how intrinsically quantum properties affect various ...
  • Gallego López, Rodrigo (Date of defense: 22-02-2013)
    The device-independent formalism is a set of tools to analyze experimental data and infer properties about systems, while avoiding almost any assumption about the functioning of devices. It has found applications both in ...
  • Prettico, Giuseppe (Date of defense: 18-01-2013)
    Quantum Information Theory (QIT) studies how information can be processed and transmitted when encoded on quantum states. Practically, it can be understood as the effort to generalize Classical Information Theory to the ...
  • Huwer, Jan Henning (Date of defense: 29-01-2014)
    One promising approach for future quantum networks is the combination of strings of trapped ions as quantum-information processors with entangled photon pairs produced by spontaneous parametric down conversion (SPDC) to ...
  • Torre Carazo, Gonzalo de la (Date of defense: 23-09-2015)
    Physics has two main ambitions: to predict and to understand. Indeed, physics aims for the prediction of all natural phenomena. Prediction entails modeling the correlation between an action, the input, and what is subsequently ...
  • Passaro, Elsa (Date of defense: 30-05-2016)
    Quantum information science is a rapidly evolving field both from the theoretical and the experimental viewpoint, motivated by the fact that protocols exploiting quantum resources can perform tasks that are unfeasible in ...
  • Dhara, Chirag (Date of defense: 12-06-2013)
    Quantum mechanics was developed as a response to the inadequacy of classical physics in explaining certain physical phenomena. While it has proved immensely successful, it also presents several features that severely ...
  • Hernández Santana, Senaida (Date of defense: 12-04-2019)
    Quantum Mechanics was established as the theory of the microscopic world, which allowed to understand processes in atoms and molecules. Its emergence led to a new scientific paradigm that quickly spread to different research ...
  • Huembeli, Patrick (Date of defense: 25-03-2021)
    Research at the intersection of machine learning (ML) and quantum physics is a recent growing field due to the enormous expectations and the success of both fields. ML is arguably one of the most promising technologies ...
  • Würflinger, Lars Erik (Date of defense: 18-09-2013)
    Despite the success of quantum mechanics in predicting the outcomes of experiments in many branches of physics, the foundations of the theory have remained subject of research and dispute. At the basis of this struggle ...
  • Curchod, Florian John (Date of defense: 11-10-2018)
    This thesis focusses on the essential features of Quantum Theory that are systems in an entangled state and Bell nonlocal correlations. Here, we take the angle of a resource theory and are interested in understanding better ...
  • Bourdoncle, Boris (Date of defense: 13-02-2019)
    The twentieth century was marked by two scientific revolutions. On the one hand, quantum mechanics questioned our understanding of nature and physics. On the other hand, came the realisation that information could be treated ...
  • Pozas Kerstjens, Alejandro (Date of defense: 15-10-2019)
    Quantum theory, as counter-intuitive as a theory can get, has turned out to make predictions of the physical world that match observations so precisely that it has been described as the most accurate physical theory ever ...
  • Máttar Flores, Alejandro (Date of defense: 17-10-2017)
    According to recent estimates, 10^18 bytes of data are generated on a daily basis around the globe. Our information society urges for radical solutions to treat such data deluge. By exploiting fundamental key elements of ...
  • Raissi, Zahra (Date of defense: 08-10-2020)
    Studying entanglement is essential for our understanding of such diverse areas as high-energy physics, condensed matter physics, and quantum optics. Moreover, entanglement allows us to surpass classical physics and ...
  • Guerini de Souza, Leonardo (Date of defense: 29-01-2018)
    This PhD thesis is focused on the quantum measurement simulability problem, that is, deciding whether a given measurement can be simulated when only a restricted subset of measurements is accessible. We provide an operational ...
  • Perarnau Llobet, Martí (Date of defense: 06-06-2016)
    Thermodynamics traditionally deals with macroscopic systems at thermal equilibrium. However, since the very beginning of the theory, its range of applicability has only increased, nowadays being applied to virtually every ...
