The project will focus mainly on the development of quantum communication using satellites. Since algorithmic breakthroughs & the imminent advent of quantum computers pose immense threats to classical key distribution-based communication tools, the quantum key distribution proves to be the best available means of providing information-theoretically secure avenues of secure communications, especially important in strategic sectors like banking and defense.

RRI is currently looking for two appointments at eminent positions within the Quantum Information and Computing lab, Light and Matter Physics group of the Institute. It will be a contractual-based appointment.
