The February 21, 2012 press release from the Centre for Quantum Dynamics is entitled 'Single atoms talk to electric circuits at Griffith.'
The scientists involved with this research compare their ability to manipulate a single atom to communicate within an electrical circuit with the much older process of getting 'voices '¦ transmitted over radio.'
These scientists have succeeded in making a major advancement in computing and electronics -- in being able to control classical objects such as computers with quantum dynamics.
The press release states this work by this Australian-American team ''¦ could have far-reaching implications for the future of secure communications and code breaking.'
Dr. Dave Kielpinski, the chief investigator on this project and a professor at Griffith University, is quoted: "Atom-based quantum communication is guaranteed to be secure by the laws of physics, so the atom-circuit interface can extend this security to electronic devices.'
