Quantum cryptography links integration on commercial wide-area optical networks using Wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) is essential to develop global scale Quantum Key Distribution Networks (QKD)

Quantum key distribution (QKD), establishes highly secure keys between distant parties by using single photons to transmit each bit of the key. A unique aspect of quantum cryptography is that Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle ensures that any attempts to intercept and measure quantum transmissions, will introduce an anomalously high error rate …

Networking technologies for integration of Quantum cryptography (QKD) on commercial optical networks essential for global scale Quantum Key Distribution Networks

Quantum cryptography is an emerging technology in which two parties may simultaneously generate shared, secret cryptographic key material using the transmission of quantum states of light. A unique aspect of quantum cryptography is that Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle ensures that if Eve attempts to intercept and measure Alice’s quantum transmissions, her …

Quantum Entanglement advances enables Quantum Computers, high-speed ultra secure communications, high precision Quantum Sensors and Imaging

The extraordinary promise of quantum technology—depend on quantum “entanglement,” in which the physical states of two or more objects such as atoms, photons or ions become so inextricably connected that the state of one particle can instantly influence the state of the other—no matter how far apart they are.  Entanglement links …

Electro-optical Circuit Board (EOCB) enable photonic integrated circuits, autonomous cars and even quantum computers based on light

As copper reaches its speed limit, engineers look at optics to replace copper for very high speed signals. The electronic transmission of information requires energy – the faster the interface, the more electrical power is required. At very high data transfer rates, optical interfaces can be significantly more efficient than …

Photoacoustic Imaging enable Seeing Through Solids, hackproof Biometrics and Image Underwater Objects

Alexander Graham Bell discovered photoacoustics by accident when he was working on the development of the photophone, a followup to his recently developed telephone that operated via modulated sunlight instead of electricity. You would operate a photophone by speaking into its transmitter toward a mirror placed inside of it. The vibrations …

Quantum holography

We see things because our eyes are sophisticated light detectors: they constantly capture the light rays bouncing off nearby objects so our brain can construct an ever-changing impression of the world around us. Photography, as this became known, has revolutionized the way people see and engage with the world but …

Programmable or reconfigurable optical chips will enable Optical FPGAs that can be reconfigured using software to perform different functions

Photonics, the science of generating, detecting and manipulating particles of light, forms the basis of many of the technologies we use in our everyday life. In the evolving branch of integrated photonics, increasingly large and complex optical circuits can be built on the surface of a chip. The majority of …
