A team of Physics and Electrical and Computer Engineering researchers from The Ohio State University, Duke University, and The National University of Singapore built world's highest rate quantum key distribution system.  Led by Duke physics graduate student Nurul Islam and supervised by OSU Prof. Daniel Gauthier, the system is capable of generating a secret key at a rate five to 10 times faster than the existing methods. Read their paper: "Provably secure and high-rate quantum key distribution with time-bin qudits" published in Science Advances

Their work was also highlighted in Duke Today and many news outlets around the globe.
