Applications are invited for a Test Engineer in the Quantum Information Group at Toshiba Research Europe Ltd. The successful applicant will work in a team manufacturing high speed quantum cryptographic systems. They will be responsible for characterising optical/electrical components as well as testing optical communication systems assembled from these components. Appropriate training will be given.
Keeping personal data safe and secure is one of the greatest challenges posed by the rapid development of today’s information technology. To meet this challenge, Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) has emerged as a revolutionary technology that allows the distribution of digital keys needed for data protection with security guaranteed by the laws of quantum physics. Unlike existing technologies based on public key cryptography, QKD is future proof and is not vulnerable to technological advances in mathematics, engineering, computing power and even quantum computers.
Toshiba Research Europe Limited has been at the leading position in the development of high speed QKD systems in the past decade. It has developed the first Quantum Cryptography system operating over 100 km of fibre and the first to operate with a secure key rate of 10 Mbit/sec. Toshiba’s systems have been selected to serve long-haul fibre links in the first UK Quantum Network.
