Position Assistant Professor at the Department of Information Engineering, University of Padova, via G.Gradenigo 6/B, 35131 - Padova, Italy

Activities Research focused in the field of quantum communication, with particular attention to free spacephoton propagation and quantum key distribution. I teach Elecromagnetism in the second yearof the Informatic Engineering course.

Employer University Sapienza of Rome, piazzale Aldo Moro 5, Rome, Italy.Position Post-doc fellowship at the Physic Department of the University

Activities Since January 2006 I worked with Francesco De Martini and Paolo Mataloni in the experimentalQuantum Optic Group of the Sapienza University. My research is focused in the generation andmanipulation of quantum states, with particular attention to hyperentangled two-photon states,i.e. entangled in more than one degree of freedom. Those states represent an important resourcein quantum computation and communication applications and are generated by the so calledSpontaneous Parametric Down Conversion (SPDC).In particular I studied:

non-locality experiments with hyperentangled states [3-6,40]. With hyperentangled statesan higher violation of Bell inequalities with respect to simple entangled states with onedegree of freedom can be obtained.

complete and deterministic discrimination of polarization Bell states through hyperentan-gled states [7];

generation of polarization qutrit states from non maximally entangled states [9]; generation of two-photon four-qubit linear cluster states [8]. Those states are very

important in the one-way model of quantum computation [10,11,13,23]; time-bin entanglement of two photon realized with a new interferometric sche-

me that allows the generation of the entanglement without temporal post-selection[12,17,24,25,34];

generation of 6-qubit hyperentangled states [15,18] and witness methods for entanglementdetection [14, 33];

creation of two photons entangled in many optical path (multi-path entanglement) [16,19]by an integrated device built with single mode fibers and GRaded INdex lens [22];

6-qubit two-photon cluster state generation [20,21]. These states were used for nonlocalitytest [21] and the realization of quantum algorithms in the one-way model [26,28];

use of a deformable mirror for experiments in quantum interferometry [27]; Studio della Quantum Process Tomography (QPT) per mappe non trace-preserving [29]; Use of a laser written waveguide in glass to manipulate the polarization of entangled

photons [30]. These waveguide represent an importatnt step towards the miniaturizationof quantum information processes based on the photon polarization;

Realization of a 2-photon 4-qubit Dicke state and study of its decoherence [31]; Study of the role of the post-selection in nonlocality experiments [32]; Realization of the first integrated CNOT working on polarization qubit [36] and the first

integrated quantum walk of two polarization entangled photons [39]; Proposal of a device-independent QKD protocol based on nonmaximally entangled states

Position Assegnista di ricerca in fisica (post-doc reseach grant)Activities I worked with the String Theory Group of Torino and with the Quantum Optic Group of

Francesco De Martini and Paolo Mataloni in the University Sapienza of Rome.

Italy.Position Graduate student in Theoretical Physics at the University of Torino (XVIII ciclo).

Activities I studied and researched in the field of string theory. Courses attended:

Phenomenology of standard model I and II Nonperturbative quantum field theory Q.F.T. at finite temperature Statistical field theory Supersymmetry

I worked with Prof. M. Bill, M. Frau, A. Lerda and S. Sciuto on the stringy description ofinstantons in noncommutative Yang-Mills theory, realized with D3/D(1) brane systems in aB background [2].

Date 01/12/2003-31/10/2004Position Marie Curie training site fellowship at NORDITA institute (Copenhagen).

Activities I worked under the supervision of Prof. Paolo Di Vecchia and I studied supergravity solu-tions dual to gauge theories in the framework of gauge/gravity correspondence, with specialattention to the orbifold C3/Z2 Z2 and the conifold.I also worked with my colleagues, P. Merlatti, F. Sannino and F. Vian, on the generalizedVeneziano-Yankelovicz potential with the inclusion of the glueball superfield and the mesonsuperfield. In particular we investigated the classic solutions (domain walls) of this theory [1].
