Discovery moves quantum networks closer to reality Researchers at the University of Calgary, in Canada, collaborating with the University of Paderborn, in Germany, are working on a way to make quantum networks a reality and have published their findings in the journal Nature. A similar finding by a group at the University of Geneva, in Switzerland is reported in the same issue. "We have demonstrated, for the first time, that a crystal can store information encoded into entangled quantum...

Researchers at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) have demonstrated quantum entanglement for a quantum state stored in four spatially distinct atomic memories. Their work, described in the November 18 issue of the journal Nature, also demonstrated a quantum interface between the atomic memories"”which represent something akin to a computer "hard drive" for entanglement"”and four beams of light, thereby enabling the four-fold entanglement to be distributed by photons...

Physicists demonstrate means for quantum bits to communicate over long distances A team of Harvard physicists led by Mikhail D. Lukin has achieved the first-ever quantum entanglement of photons and solid-state materials. The work marks a key advance toward practical quantum networks, as the first experimental demonstration of a means by which solid-state quantum bits, or "qubits," can communicate with one another over long distances. Quantum networking applications such as long-distance...
