Australian Researchers Successfully Measure Light for Safe Quantum Internet Data Transfer

By IQT News posted 30 Jan 2019

(ZDNet) The Australian National University (ANU) has announced a way to monitor and measure light particles along quantum circuits, with the approach touted as paving the way to a safe “data superhighway” in the quantum world. “The light particles move really fast so, for quality-control purposes, we’ve developed a way to monitor and measure them along quantum circuits, which are like superhighways for the light particles to travel along,” said Associate Professor Sukhorukov, who led the research with a team of scientists at the Nonlinear Physics Centre of the ANU Research School of Physics and Engineering.
The feasibility of the new approach was tested in experiments with custom-designed fabricated optical circuits by a research group at the University of Rostock in Germany.
