High-Speed Internet, Quantum Style. It’s Possible.

Once thought to be an unlikely possibility, the high-speed quantum internet is looking to be more of a reality. With the introduction of new materials, rapid production of photons capable of transmitting quantum information has researchers at the University of Moscow excited. Utilizing silicon carbide, the team has created a single-photon diode capable of producing 2+ billion photons each second. Simple math equates this to 1 Gbps; a common attribute of our present internet infrastructure.

Electrical excitation causes a point defect in the crystal lattice of silicon carbide to emit single photons, which are of use to quantum cryptography. Credit: Elena Khavina, MIPT Press Office
