Photonics engineers and physicists ally to make encryption completely secure

In our increasingly digitised society, exchanges of private and sensitive information are almost exclusively digital. Now researchers in a new project are working on photonic integrated circuits to make our digital data secure with unbreakable encryption.

"As is often the case with physics, when you try to solve one problem, another arises in its wake. You often discover new things that turn out to be of fundamental importance, but that’s what makes engineering science so much fun," says Mikael Andersen Langthjem. Photo: Melissa Yildirim, AU Foto.

Bad hair day? Don’t bother – it’s math

Tired of that little swirl in your hair you can never get straight? You might as well get used to it, for nature has a very good reason for putting it there.
