Curriculum Vitae

Prof. Paolo Villoresi

Born in Treviso, Italy, in 1962, he studied Physics and Applied Mathematics at the University of Padova.
He is a Full Professor of Physics (Professore Ordinario) at the University of Padova, where he currently teaches Quantum Optics and related subjects.

National delegate for Action COST Nanoscale Quantum Optics
Deputy National Delegate for COST Action Quantum Physics in Sopace
Associate Editor of Scientific Reports (Nature Publsh.)
Coordinator of the Study Group for Quantum Communication in Europe

Selected current research activities in Experimental Quantum Communications, as Group coordinator:
• Project coordinator for the development of a Space Quantum Communication payload for the Italian Space Agency (2017-2019).
• Development and patenting of Quantum Random Number Generators QRNG – 17 Gbps record rate generated so far. (2014-2019)
• First demonstration of Quantum Communications from an orbiting transmitter on a LEO satellite using polarization and temporal degrees of freedom (2010-2016).
• Fundamental experiments in wave-particle duality of photons in Space: Wheeler "Delayed Choice" experiment (2016-2017).
• Q-Space Experiment: first demonstration of single-photon link between a satellite and the Earth (2003-2008).
• Canary 143 km Inter-island link experiment: Experimental demonstration of Quantum Key Distribution with mitigation of turbulence effects (2010-2015)
