The race is on to build the quantum internet

“Quantum Key Distribution”, or QKD, will undoubtedly be the first technology to make practical use of the potential applications of quantum physics outside the laboratory. Such is the three-year goal set by the European project entitled OpenQKD, which brings together research centres and industry partners from thirteen different countries. For Europe, OpenQKD is a pilot […]

Orange and the quantum technologies for the security of data exchange

Quantum Physics: from everyday life applications to network security The word “quantum” relates to the world of the infinitely small, therefore the constituent elements of matter (molecules, atoms, particles, etc.). The objects around us respect the laws of classical physics for space and time: for example, if a car is traveling from point A to […]

Quantum computing is breaking down the barriers of cryptography

When postulating that the number of transistors on a chip would double every year, cofounder of Intel Gordon Moore predicted that the industry would reach a physical limit around 2020, that of the size of atoms. Quantum physics, which studies atom behaviour, is being called upon to extend “Moore’s law”. Applied to computing, the quantum […]
