Summary on Grant Application Form
Mobile phones and handheld devices are increasingly being used for wireless financial transactions, and maintaining the

security of these is paramount. This work will combine a quantum secure wireless link with secure software to create a

demonstration of how quantum technologies can play a role in payments and other financial transactions. We will work on

both the physical hardware for the link, building on existing expertise, and the software that is required to enable the

transaction.
