The aim of this project is to explore the quantum communication and computing, especially quantum cryptography.


  1. To design and build a DIY platform for single photon emission and detection; as cheap and simple as possible
  2. Photon polarization control and measurements
  3. Demonstrating as much as can be done with the hardware: true quantum level pseudo-random number generator, quantum secured communication, error correction codes, …
  4. Spotting, exploiting and patching hardware vulnerabilities
  5. Finding security bugs and vulnerabilities in quantum physics and patching the universe
