Researchers bounce polarized photons off satellites to show feasibility of space based quantum communications

(Phys.org) —A team of researchers working at the University of Padua in Italy has bounced polarized photons off of four in-flight satellites to show that quantum communications between such satellites and ground based stations is possible. The team has uploaded a paper they’ve written to the preprint server arXiv, describing their work and what it might mean for future quantum transmissions through space.
