Gunnar Björk, Professor of Photonics at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, will be responsible for the quantum excellence programme within Wallenberg Centre for Quantum Technology: "Digital information which we want to keep secret becomes significantly more secure with quantum communication. Today, communication security is based on a supposed but not proven assumption that certain calculating problems are hard to solve. With quantum communication, we instead build security on the laws of physics, which hopefully gives us much less worries with hacker attacks and ransomware."
