Hybrid Quantum-Edge Computing: A New Computing Paradigm

October 4, 2022
Author(s)
Lijun Ma, Leah Ding
Edge computing has emerged to support the computational demand of delay-sensitive applications in which substantial computing and storage are deployed at the network edge in close proximity to data sources. The vision of a hybrid quantum-edge is to provide

Portable polarization-entangled photon source & receiver toolset for quantum network metrology

October 4, 2022
Author(s)
Anouar Rahmouni, Thomas Gerrits, Paulina Kuo, Dileep Reddy, Lijun Ma, Xiao Tang, Oliver T. Slattery
A quantum network will consist of many physically separated nodes connected by quantum communication channels that distribute entanglement between them. Such nodes will require mechanisms for the generation, routing, and measurement of quantum states to
