Quantum cryptography is an emerging technology in which two parties may simultaneously generate shared, secret cryptographic key material using the transmission of quantum states of light whose security is based on the inviolability of the laws of quantum mechanics. An adversary can neither successfully tap the key transmissions, nor evade detection, owing(More)
Network-centric quantum communications (NQC)-a new, scalable instantiation of quantum cryptography providing key management with forward security for lightweight encryption, authentication and digital signatures in optical networks – is briefly described. Results from a multi-node experimental test-bed utilizing integrated photonics quantum communications(More)
Evidence of antibody isotype/subtype switching may provide prognostic value regarding the state of immune responses to therapeutic proteins, e.g. anti-factor VIII (FVIII) antibodies that develop in many hemophilia A patients, clinically termed "inhibitors". A sensitive, high- information-content surface plasmon resonance (SPR) assay has been developed to(More)
Two important characteristics of the World Wide Web, which will henceforth be referred to as the Web, are its ease-of-use and the ability of authors to create hyperlinks to other pages. This latter feature especially allows the Web to transcend printed media and gives it the potential to develop as a powerful teaching and learning tool. In order for the Web(More)
