Hybrid quantum repeaters for secure quantum communications
Quantum repeaters are important components for future applications such as quantum key distribution and quantum networks, enabling the transmission of quantum states over long distances. The primary objective of the EU-funded Qurope project is to develop hybrid quantum repeater architecture based on dissimilar quantum systems and test performances in real-word applications. Different memory systems based on vapour cells and rare-earth doped crystals will be combined with semiconductor quantum dots to develop near-infrared and telecom-based quantum repeaters. These systems will then be tested using both free-space and fibre-based quantum key distribution protocols based on entanglement. The project's results will pave the way for the future large-scale implementation of secure quantum communication.
