In-Depth Article

Hey guys,
I've found a really detailed article about Quantum Cryptography here.
It talks about the origin of quantum cryptography, and even goes into some detail about the idea of quantum mechanics itself. It is a change from the other websites because it goes into very specific and highly technical language about how QC actually works. It's interesting to see equations that we've actually used (such as Hamiltonian operators) at work here in a practical application.
It also goes into limitations of QC, these include the fact that QC cannot be used over large distances.
It's a pretty long article but I think reading it gives an appreciation of how the theoretical work we've been doing this semester has been applied in a very practical manner.
