Stefania Sciara got her Bachelor Degree (110/110 cum Laude) in Physical Sciences on March 2014 as well as the Master Degree in Theoretical Physics (110/110 cum Laude) on October 2015, at the University of Palermo. Stefania focused her academic studies on quantum mechanics, with specific attention to the theoretical investigation of the entanglement phenomenon. In her Master thesis (titled “Schmidt-like decomposition for systems of identical particle”) she explored entanglement in systems of identical particles, deriving an analogue form of the well-known Schmidt mode decomposition for indistinguishable particles without using either fictitious labels or (anti)-symmetrization. This study resulted in the publication Scientific Reports 7, 44675 (2017). During her PhD research, Stefania has investigated theoretically complex systems of entangled photons, with specific focus on the time and frequency frameworks. The theoretical studies contributed in the experimental realization of and entanglement characterization of complex entangled photon states, in particular high-dimensional Bell and multipartite cluster states. The team’s work resulted in two publications, i.e. Nature 546, 622-624 (2017), and Nature Physics 15, 148-153 (2019). Stefania finally focused her research studies in the derivation of universal witness operators capable of detecting the presence as well as the entanglement of any arbitrarily-complex pure quantum state and that can be customized towards experimental restrictions and/or available measurement settings. The peculiarity of these witnesses is the feasibility with which they can be measured experimentally. This work resulted in the publication Physical Review Letters 122, 120501 (2019).
Stefania is currently a Post-Doc Fellow in Prof. Morandotti’s group. Following the research lines pursued during her PhD, she is focusing on the generation and processing of complex entangled photon states towards their use for quantum technology applications, such as quantum communications and quantum teleportation.
