Sending Quantum Messages Through Space


Fragile photon states useful for quantum communication can be faithfully transmitted and distinguished over a link between an orbiting satellite and a telescope on Earth.

Paolo Villoresi and colleagues at the University of Padova in Italy report [1] that photons—acting as carriers of quantum information—preserve their state, on which such information is encoded, even after having been reflected by satellites located more than a thousand kilometers away from Earth.

Applied Physics B Topical Issue “Quantum Repeaters: From Components to Strategies”


The aim of this topical issue is to support future funding schemes at both the national and international levels. For more information see the announcement (pdf).

The "Quantum Repeater" puts forward a concept which encompasses numerous, if not all aspects of realizing future components and devices for quantum information technology. Relevant platforms include quantum optical systems, semiconductor based components, superconducting quantum devices, and more and more hybrid systems bridging different technologies.
