    Project Details

    Description

    All our communication and computing relies on classical information, most of it now in digital (on/off) form. The new area of quantum information is concerned with alternative ways of encoding, manipulating and transmitting information. The advantages could be more secure communication, improvements in computation speed and the reconstruction of complex systems. This collaboration will pioneer optical quantum information techniques. It combines expertise in pulsed, optical solitons in Erlangen with CW optical technology at ANU and quantum information expertise in Adelaide. This unique collaboration would allow dramatic new fundamental results preparing the ground for a new technology.
