Quantum Software Consortium

II - Software for Quantum Networks

In Research Theme II, the QSC will overcome the theoretical challenges in realizing a quantum internet and run key protocols. A quantum internet aims to create quantum entanglement between sender and receiver, enabling communication with security guarantees that cannot be achieved classically.

 

Aim

To overcome the theoretical challenges in enabling long distance quantum communication.

 

Theme leader
