Another Quantum breakthrough

In may of 2005 scientists managed to create a laser that was capable of firing single photons at a time. This is a significant breakthrough for quantum cryptography as before this scientists simply reduced their lasers intensity to a level that gave a high probability that one one photon was emitted. This still left a finite possibility that two photons may be emitted on of which could be intercepted by a would be hacker without the recipients knowledge. The creation of a laser that can fire only single photons removes this security venerability to quantum cryptography. There is a link to the article below.
