Building a Quantum Internet

September 21, 2017



A quantum internet promises to be faster and more secure. Researchers at the Centre for Quantum Computation and Communication Technology (CQC2T) have made a breakthrough in creating a quantum internet using Erbium, which is a chemical element (symbol Er and atomic number 68), commonly used as a photographic filter. This research from the Australian team demonstrates how to dramatically improve the storage time of a telecom-compatible quantum memory, a vital component of a global quantum network.
