First Long-Distance Quantum Link Created By

2 posts in this topic

For more than a decade, physicists have been developing quantum mechanical methods to pass secret messages without fear that they could be intercepted. But they still haven’t created a true quantum network — the fully quantum-mechanical analog to an ordinary telecommunications network in which an uncrackable connection can be forged between any two stations or “nodes” in a network.Now, a team of researchers in Germany has built the first true quantum link using two widely separate atoms. A complete network could be constructed by combining many such links, the researchers say.

Haven't read it yet but I guess they use the concept of entanglement.

That's brilliant. I guess it means nothing could be intercepted since it dosen't work by transmitting and receiving electromagnetic waves of information.

I'll check it out.
