 +The aim of this project is to explore the quantum communication and computing, especially quantum cryptography.
 +
 +===== Goals =====
 +  - To design and build a DIY platform for single photon emission and detection; as cheap and simple as possible
 +  - Photon polarization control and measurements
 +  - Demonstrating as much as can be done with the hardware: <​del>​true</​del>​ quantum level pseudo-random number generator, quantum secured communication,​ error correction codes, ...
 +  - Spotting, exploiting and patching hardware vulnerabilities
 +  - Finding security bugs and vulnerabilities in quantum physics and patching the universe
 +
 +===== Motto =====
 +//"​Will argue about particle-wave duality for food."// ​ --- [[http://​twitter.com/​txrxlabs/​status/​10440732710|txrxlabs]]
 +
 +===== Status and Roadmap =====
 +  * Status: The founder has left hackerspace,​ the project is available for adoption.
 +  * TODO: Realistic project proposal
 +
 +===== Proposed hardware =====
 +  * Source: highly attenuated short-pulsed laser
 +  * Detector: avalanche photodiode, [[http://​www.ebay.de/​itm/​Hamamatsu-R3788-Photomultiplier-Tube-PMTs-185-750nm-/​110735874498?​pt=Mess_Pr%C3%BCftechnik&​hash=item19c85f59c2|Hamamatsu R3788 Photomultiplier Tube (PMTs) 185-750nm]]
