Experiment opens the door to multi-party quantum communication

Photons generated in the lab were beamed to separate trailers in field on the University of Waterloo campus. The experiment prov

In the world of quantum science, Alice and Bob have been talking to one another for years. Charlie joined the conversation a few years ago, but now by enforcing the space-like separation of the three parties, scientists have demonstrated full quantum nonlocality with more than two entangled photons.

Quantum physics secures new cryptography scheme

The way we secure digital transactions could soon change. An international team has demonstrated a form of quantum cryptography that can protect people doing business with others they may not know or trust –  a situation encountered often on the internet and in everyday life, for example at a bank’s ATM.
