Dr. Alexander Lvovsky ( is an international leader in the field of quantum optical information technology. He is a past Canada Research Chair, a lifetime member of the American Physical Society, a Fellow of the Optical Society of America, a deputy Editor of Optics Express and a winner of many awards – most notably the International Quantum Communications award, the Alberta Ingenuity New Faculty award, the Emmy Noether research award of the German Science Foundation and most recently the 1000 Talents adjunct professorship. He has published about 75 articles in international research journals, cited over five thousand times in total. His publication list includes 16 Physical Review Letters, 6 papers in Nature suite of journals and one article in Science, in most of which Alexander has been either the leading or corresponding author.
