A Testbed for Quantum Communication and Quantum Networks
Lijun Ma, Abdella Battou, Xiao Tang, Oliver T. Slattery
The development of Quantum Networks is underway with significant acceleration in in recent years. Meanwhile. quantum scale devices and components such as single photon sources, detectors, memories and interfaces are ever readier to leave the laboratory. Therefore, there is a need to test new and existing quantum devices, protocols and alternative network configurations in a real life, active network in a controlled scientific setting. The NIST Platform for Quantum Network Innovation (PQNI) will be used to field test new and existing quantum components and quantum network protocols for performance, synchronization, loss compensation, error correction, compatibility with conventional network traffic (often referred to as co-existence), continuity of operations, optimization and more.
