About the Project

The possibility of developing quantum computing machines that can break the widely used public key cryptosystems has required us to look into new solutions for scenarios where long-term data security is needed. Quantum key distribution (QKD) is a technique that would provide the required level of data security but has so far been limited to fixed optical implementations. This project will explore, both experimentally and theoretically, the use of Terahertz frequencies to enable a wireless implementation of QKD.
