LASER World of PHOTONICS 2017

Fraunhofer IOF presents encryption technology for interception-free communication for the first time

16.5.2017

In the near future, quantum cryptography will be an important issue for the secure transfer of communication. The feasibility of quantum technology could only be proven in research labs so far - now the idea is to be transferred from laboratories to the real world. Experts of the Fraunhofer-Institute for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering IOF in Jena have succeeded in providing an encrypted photon source for space applications. These and many other developments are presented from June 26 to 29, 2017 at the LASER World of Photonics in Munich.
