Home 5 Évènement 5 Webinar « QUANTUM INTERNET »



Researchers in Europe, USA and China are racing to create teleportation networks capable of distributing entangled photons. Getting them to scale is a real scientific challenge for the coming decade.

  • Is it possible to reliably produce linked photons on demand and maintain their entanglement over a long distance ?
  • What does routing mean in a quantum Internet ? 
  • What kind of infrastructure, hardware and software, do we need to achieve this goal ?

Like the classical Internet, the quantum Internet is a globe-spanning network of networks.

The difference between these two Internet is the second one uses a quantum communication system. That means transporting all data in a quantum form.

The mechanism used is quantum teleportation which relies on an intrinsic property of the theory, entanglement.

This webinar intends to bring the first answers to these questions and provide the state of the art in the field.
