Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Current information and communications technology was designed based on physical laws established in the 19th century, and issues regarding transmission capacity and security of encryptions are prompting concern that we will reach the limits of these laws in the future. To overcome such limitations, NICT is conducting R&D on quantum information and communication technology, new technology based on quantum mechanics, the ultimate physical laws, and applications of this technology. We give an overview of this work below.
