The new quantum communication chip is 1000 times smaller than modern quantum devices, but it works just as efficiently.

Most current safety standardsCommunication systems used in ATMs or when making online purchases do not use quantum technologies. Therefore, there is currently a threat of interception of a PIN code or password during electronic data transfer.

Researchers from Nanyang Technological University have developed a chip less than 4 mm long that uses quantum communication algorithmsto increase transaction security. This is achieved by integrating passwords into the transmitted information to create a secure quantum key. After receiving the data, they are destroyed along with the key, which further increases the reliability of such a connection.

The system uses randomized lines of codeto encrypt information that can only be accessed by the recipient with the correct key. This makes communication easier because there is no need to transmit additional passwords or biometric data.

The developers claim that the use of suchchips will be cost-effective because they are made from readily available materials such as silicon. The invention could also stimulate the creation of next-generation communication devices and improve digital services such as online banking, digital government.

Earlier, European researchers presented another version of the chip to protect information systems, which generates random numbers by shooting a tiny laser at one of two targets.
