  • Published 2013
Quantum networks are distributed systems that utilize entanglement and teleportation. They uniquely enable tamper-evident communication, distributed quantum computation, and quantum sensor networks that support tests of the foundations of quantum mechanics itself [1, 2]. These applications are driving substantial amounts of research into quantum networks, especially a form known as quantum repeater networks. Quantum networks appear impossible. Classical networks depend on relaying, in which a… Expand

Quantum networking and internetworking
With unentangled quantum networks already deployed, entangled networks may appear within the next few years and will form a vibrant research topic in the coming decade. Expand
Fault-tolerant quantum repeaters with minimal physical resources, and implementations based on single photon emitters
We analyze a method that uses fixed, minimal physical resources to achieve generation and nested purification of quantum entanglement for quantum communication over arbitrarily long distances andExpand
Measurement-based quantum repeaters
We introduce measurement-based quantum repeaters, where small-scale measurement-based quantum processors are used to perform entanglement purification and entanglement swapping in a long-rangeExpand
Surface code quantum communication.
It is shown that two-way communication can be avoided and quantum information can be sent over arbitrary distances with arbitrarily low error at a rate limited only by the local gate speed. Expand
Recursive quantum repeater networks
This work introduces the notion of a Quantum Recursive Network Architecture, developed from the emerging classical concept of 'recursive networks', extending recursive mechanisms from a focus on data forwarding to a more general distributed computing request framework. Expand
Quantum Repeaters: The Role of Imperfect Local Operations in Quantum Communication
This work presents a scheme of a quantum repeater that connects a string of (imperfect) entangled pairs of particles by using a novel nested purification protocol, thereby creating a single distant pair of high fidelity. Expand
Protocol design for quantum repeater networks
This paper defines and describes the implementation of the classical control protocols, and shows that proper management of the resources in a bottleneck link allows the aggregate throughput of two end-to-end flows to substantially exceed that of a single flow. Expand
Optimal path for a quantum teleportation protocol in entangled networks
Bellman's optimality principle has been of enormous importance in the development of whole branches of applied mathematics, computer science, optimal control theory, economics, decision making, andExpand
Teleporting an unknown quantum state via dual classical and EPR channels
An unknown quantum state ji can be disassembled into, then later reconstructed from, purely classical information and purely nonclassical EPR correlations. To do so the sender, \Alice," and theExpand
A single quantum cannot be cloned
If a photon of definite polarization encounters an excited atom, there is typically some nonvanishing probability that the atom will emit a second photon by stimulated emission. Such a photon isExpand
