Opinion: Just last month, Australian researchers made a global breakthrough in portable quantum cryptography. Read the first hand account of the NSW Defence Innovation Network’s Lincoln Parker.
In September of 2017 the Chinese Academy of Sciences prepared and carried out the world’s first secure intercontinental “Quantum Call” over a record distance of 7,600 kilometres between Beijing and Vienna.
The secure quantum call lasted 75 minutes and demonstrated China’s lead in quantum physics with the potential for a hack-proof quantum internet being developed and adopted, with Chinese characteristics of course.
Over five years later and no other country in the world has been able to demonstrate such a capability.
