Quantum Communication over long distances

Date: Tuesday, December 18, 2018 11:00 - 12:30
Speaker: Rupert Ursin (Austrian Academy of Sciences)
Location: Big Seminar room Ground floor / Office Bldg West (I21.EG.101)
Series: Physical Sciences Seminar
Host: Johannes Fink
Lab building west seminar room

Quantum networking is the next big issue in quantum communication science. We recently implemented a WDM fiber network, deploying polarization quits for four users. This network is scalable and fully connected - the perfect start for a future quantum internet [1]. I will discuss recent experiments we performed in collaboration with the Chinese Academy of Sciences using a LEO Satellite to perform quantum link to an optical ground station in Graz. Further I will discuss my future plans to implement a 24/7 quantum network spanning on international glas fibers between Vienna-Bratislava and Budapest and possibly also beyond.[1] 1.
