Image: Encoding information on single photons will revolutionise today's information technologies

Welcome to the Quantum Information Group
Toshiba is developing a new approach to information technology that applies the fundamental laws of Quantum Physics to network communications and computing.

Quantum Information Technology concerns the transport and processing of information using individual particles such as electrons or photons. Using single particles in this way brings unexpected advantages. By sending information encoded upon single photons (the particles of light) it is possible to test the secrecy of each communication.

Toshiba has exploited this phenomenon to create a practical system for secure communication over fibre optical cables. However, Quantum Cryptography, as this secure communication method is known, is just the first in a series of quantum innovations which promises to revolutionise the entire IT industry over the next two decades.
