Australian researchers have established global leadership in quantum information. Having developed unique technologies for manipulating matter and light at the level of individual atoms and photons we have demonstrated the highest fidelity, longest coherence time qubits in the solid state; the world's longest-lived quantum memory; and the ability to run small-scale algorithms on photonic qubits. Building upon these fundamental advances, we are now proposing to implement quantum processors able to run error corrected algorithms and transfer information across networks with absolute security. The technology developed will provide a strategic advantage in a world where information and information security are of paramount importance.
