OFCnet Quantum Network - Coexistence, Transporting Entanglements

Wednesday, 08 March, 11:00 – 11:30

Theater III

Recent advances in quantum communication have moved beyond simple quantum key distribution protocols to more generalized protocols that enable the transmission of entangled photons and the sharing of a single fiber for both classical and quantum channels.   These advances allow, in principle, more complex quantum protocols to be used between two distance nodes and may one day enable quantum operations between separate, potentially disparate, quantum computers or quantum sensors.   This panel will discuss these advances and the additional developments and hardware requirements necessary to build a complex quantum network.
