  • Quantum Science and Laser Spectroscopy: ITMO Hosts 12th Fundamental Problems of Optics Conference

    This Monday, the 12th Fundamental Problems of Optics conference kicked off at ITMO University. This year’s key topics of discussion are quantum communications and the development of theoretical knowledge regarding 6G data transfer. 


  • ITMO Researchers Suggest New Way to Improve Quantum Encryption in Optical Fiber Communication Lines

    Staff members of the Laboratory of Quantum Processes and Measurements have found the cause of errors that occur on subcarrier frequencies in quantum key distribution (QKD) systems – as well as a way to eliminate it. Their research was published in Optics Express. 


  • ITMO University Researchers Suggest Modification of Quantum Encryption System With Compact Detector

    The new system can significantly lower the production costs of mass quantum key distribution (QKD) networks, which will make them available to a wider user audience. This will make it possible to use QDK in the regular fiber-optic cable infrastructure. 


  • Is Fully Hack-Proof Code Possible?

    We all want our messages, be it a credit card number, an invitation to visit a friend or a declaration of love, to be read only by their receiver. The developers of messengers and banking systems are extolling the virtues of using encryption keys for information protection. What are those keys and can you make them fully hack-proof? ITMO.NEWS attempts to answer these questions as part of its new project with the help of Anton Kozubov, head of quantum computing research at ITMO University’s International Laboratory of Quantum Informatics. 


  • ITMO University Partners Up With Rostelecom to Develop Unique Quantum-Encrypted Data Network

    On the day prefacing the start of this year’s St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF), in an event held at the A.S. Popov Central Museum of Communications, Rostelecom unveiled a prototype of Russia’s first quantum-encrypted data transmission network. This data transmission mechanism is considered to be the safest one out there, as the keys protecting the traffic cannot be intercepted or stolen because of the laws of quantum physics. ITMO University is one of the developers and suppliers of state-of-the-art equipment.


  • Quantum Communications Project at ITMO Receives 100 Million Rubles Investment

    A strategic investor has acquired one half of the Quanttelecom project, established by one of ITMO University’s small innovative enterprises. The project produces fiber-optic quantum encryption equipment and systems with a high level of data security. JSC SMARTS, the project’s investor, has announced its plans to upscale the technology and release the product on the Russian and global markets.
