Jun 2009
Australia-based communications technology company QuintessenceLabs announced it will partner with Lockheed Martin Corp. to develop applications of quantum key distribution (QKD) for markets in Australia and the US. The company's second generation QKD technology integrates with preexisting communications infrastructure providing one-time pad encryption in real-time. According to QuintessenceLabs, products incorporating its bright laser technology can achieve high speed, untappable communications at a fraction of the cost of traditional systems.

The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
