 Nicolas Cerf's main contributions to quantum information science include the discovery of negative quantum information,​ the development of the first continuous-variable (Gaussian) quantum cloning and quantum cryptographic protocols, and the invention of the adiabatic quantum search algorithm. He also has established the fundamental quantum limit on the information transmission rate via (Gaussian) bosonic channels, thereby extending Shannon'​s most famous channel capacity formula to a quantum regime. Recently, he has uncovered a quantum two-photon interference effect in the amplification of light, akin to the celebrated Hong-Ou-Mandel effect but in an active optical medium. Nicolas Cerf's main contributions to quantum information science include the discovery of negative quantum information,​ the development of the first continuous-variable (Gaussian) quantum cloning and quantum cryptographic protocols, and the invention of the adiabatic quantum search algorithm.
