Private-Key Quantum Cryptography with Boson Sampling devices. Invited talk, presented by Zixin Huang at Photon 2020. Full paper here.


Encrypting quantum computation efficiently with random circuit samplers. Presented by Zixin Huang in Photon 2020. Full paper here.


A short introduction to quantum sub-wavelength resolution. Talk given to the Low Dimensional Structures and Devices research group, University of Sheffield.


Short presentation given at EPSRC Quantum Communications Hub meeting, Bristol, September 2019. After a quick summary of researches I have done in York and Sheffield, the slides present the protocol of “Boson-Sampling” private-key cryptography, aka the first application of Boson Sampling to quantum cryptography.
