Satellite-Based Continuous-Variable Quantum Communications: State-of-the-Art and a Predictive Outlook
IEEE Communications Surveys & Tutorials - August 2019
The recent launch of the Micius quantum-enabled satellite heralds a major step forward for long-range quantum communication. Using single-photon discrete-variable quantum states, this exciting new development proves beyond any doubt that all of the quantum protocols previously deployed over limited ranges in terrestrial experiments can in fact be translated to global distances via the use of low-orbit satellites. In this paper we survey the imminent extension of space-based quantum communication to the continuous-variable regime-the quantum regime perhaps most closely related to classical wireless communications. The continuous variable regime offers the potential for increased communication performance, and represents the next major step forward for quantum communications and the development of the global quantum Internet.

IEEE Quantum Computing Summit White Paper
IEEE Future Directions - August 2018
The IEEE Future Directions Committee has a long history of working with industry, academia and national laboratories to use its role as an impartial player to catalyze the development of important new technologies. The Committee brings together stakeholders for meetings in new areas of interest to the IEEE to determine where the Institute might make a contribution. Once the meeting has concluded, the Committee uses a summit output whitepaper to help it decide what technologies to incubate.
This whitepaper is the output of an IEEE Future Directions Quantum Computing Summit (QCS), held in Atlanta, GA, USA in August 2018. It was attended by 40 major players in quantum sciences from both the public and private sectors.
The summit chairs are Travis Humble and Erik DeBenedictis.

RISC-V Chip Delivers Quantum-Resistant Encryption
IEEE Spectrum - August 2021
New chip aims to future-proof security against coming quantum computers
A new post-quantum cryptography microchip based on the open source RISC-V standard is highly efficient at generating randomness and other encryption techniques.
IBM's Quantum Computing Compromise—a Road to Scale?
IEEE Spectrum - August 2021
Big Blue's quantum processors sacrifice connectivity for simplicity
By using hexagonal quantum processors with fewer connections between qubits, IBM reports an exponential reduction in errors that will help them scale faster to much larger processors required to solve real-world problems.
Quantum Randomness Now Boosts Everyday Security
IEEE Spectrum - August 2021
Encryption needs random numbers, and the subatomic realm has plenty to spare
Randomness is a crucial ingredient in encryption, and with tech giants now utilizing quantum random number generator (QRNG) platforms and chips to secure their services, could the use of quantum randomness soon be standard practice?
