New Study Could Lay Foundation for Future Quantum Communication Networks

Dr Sara Gamble, Program Manager, Army Research Office Quantum bits, qubits, constitute the fundamental units of quantum information. The researchers developed an experimental set-up including three superconducting qubits in each of two nodes, to send the entangled states via the communication cable—a 1-m-long superconducting cable. The study was financially supported and managed by the U.S. Army Combat Capability Development, called DEVCOM, Army Research Laboratory’s Center for Distributed Quantum Information. The study was published in the February 24th, 2021, issue of Nature, a peer-reviewed journal. Army-funded research sends entangled qubit states through a communication cable linking one quantum network node to a second node. A new study funded by U.S. Army could lay the foundation for future quantum communication networks and large-scale quantum computers. This research could help lay new groundwork for future quantum communication networks and large-scale quantum computers.
