Pawsey powering quantum communication research

Pawsey users from UTS have announced a major breakthrough that may herald the development of quantum communications. The research team have discovered a material that emits a single pulse of a quantum light on demand at room temperature, bringing rapid and secure quantum communications a step closer.

This material —layered hexagonal boron nitride (boron and nitrogen atoms arranged in a honeycomb structure)—is atomically thin and most commonly used as a lubricant but can be processed to emit quantized pulses of light—single photons that can carry information.
