New research, published today in The Journal of Neuroscience, has revealed that two Read more about Sometimes it’s worth taking the time to stop and think[…]

A new method of implementing an ‘unbreakable’ quantum cryptographic system

Researchers have developed a new method to overcome one of the main issues in implementing a quantum cryptography system, raising the prospect of a usable ‘unbreakable’ method for sending sensitive information hidden inside particles of light. By ‘seeding’ one laser beam inside another, the researchers, from the University of Cambridge and Toshiba Research Europe, have Read more about A new method of implementing an ‘unbreakable’ quantum cryptographic system[…]
