New alphabet to write and read quantum messages

The Heisenberg uncertainty principle forbids the velocity of the electron to be defined with arbitrary precision. The interplay of quantum mechanics and special relativity hence requires new alphabet to provide reliability.

Researchers at the University of Vienna and the Austrian Academy of Sciences guarantee the reliable decoding of quantum messages which are transmitted very close to the speed of light.

This technique could be helpful in satellite-based quantum communication (University of Vienna)
