题 目：Adventure in counterfactual quantum cryptography
报告人：Mohammad Dhafer Al-Amri （Associate Professor, The National Centre for Mathematics and Physics, King Abdul-Aziz City for Science and Technology, Saudi Arabia）
In this talk, I will introduce briefly classical and quantum cryptography. After that I will go into discussing a new scheme that we have proposed recently which allows the communicators to exchange information without sending any real particles in the transmission channel– a result that is highly counterintuitive (almost mind boggling). This idea is for the first time shown possible within the realm of physics.
