Quantum Repeater Technology Program

A quantum repeater is a device that can faithfully relay quantum information and extend quantum communication range. The Quantum Repeater Technology Program, led by Professor Ping Koy Lam based at The Australian National University in Canberra, aims to integrate quantum components into a single platform to demonstrate the operation of a quantum repeater. The program looks at realising quantum amplification, quantum resource distillation and quantum processes essential to the operation of a quantum repeater and develop precise and optimal architecture for a quantum repeater system.


Watch the latest insights from the quantum repeater technology program and research highlights from the CQC2T team at ANU in Canberra.
