Air Force Research Laboratory demonstrated a method to perform quantum communications amid sunlight via adaptive optics. The demonstration used an AO system designed to facilitate quantum communication through the air amid daylight, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base said Thursday

Quantum communication transmits information in photon particles, allowing for boosted security with networking between quantum computers. AFRL's Starfire Optical Range performed the demonstration in a condition simulating space-earth satellite connections.

“The SOR field experiment is the first in a series designed to demonstrate various quantum communication protocols,” said Mark Gruneisen, principal investigator for quantum communication research at AFRL SOR.
