Research

QuantumCTek and others have completed the live network verification of the “QKD+PQC” fusion availability

A joint team of QuantumCTek, USTC, CAS Quantum Net, Jinan Institute of Quantum Technology and Shanghai Jiaotong University has completed the first international network validation of the fusion of quantum key distribution (QKD) and post-quantum cryptography (PQC). The study demonstrates that the “PQC+QKD” fusion scheme can effectively adapt to the interactive communication conditions of large-scale networks and is feasible in practical applications, providing a convenient new means for large-scale authentication of QKD devices and laying the foundation for further research and application of the fusion technology. The study was published in  academic journal Optics Express.

Kunfeng Quantum releases research results for color image classification problem

Kunfeng Quantum has proposed two quantum lines, HQconv and FQconv, and the prediction accuracy of the hybrid quantum neural network built with these two lines surpasses that of traditional convolutional neural networks with similar structures on a small CIFAR-10 dataset. The line can extract effective image features for image classification, which provides a feasible solution for quantum computers to better solve common AI problems. The related research has been published in arXiv.

USTC and other research teams make important progress in the study of kagome structured superconductors

A joint team consisting of USTC, CAS, and HeFei National Laboratory For Physical Sciences At The Microscale observed the coexistence of three-dimensional charge density waves and superconductivity in the kagome superconducting CsV3Sb5. And signs of Majorana zero-energy mode were found in the superconducting magnetic flux core. This study shows that the kagome material is one of the ideal candidate systems for studying topological superconductivity. Related research was published in Physical Review X .

USTC realizes use the quantum system to find the zero point of Riemann function

The Guo Guangcan team of the USTC with Spanish theoretical physicists used the quantum state of the trapped ion to be periodically driven, and successfully measured the Riemann function experimentally. The first 80 zeros. This discovery provides an important experimental basis for studying the Hilbert and Pólya proposal and understanding the relationship between the Riemann conjecture and quantum systems. Related research was published in NPJ Quantum Information.
