Quantum communication has the potential to provide complete security against eavesdropping in communication networks through the use of quantum key distribution (QKD). Beyond QKD a quantum communication network will enable the distribution of quantum entanglement for distributed quantum processing and for quantum sensing.
CQC²T is developing the underlying quantum technologies and protocols to enable secure communication over large distances (>100 km) and for efficient routing of quantum information through the networks.
Our aim is to extend quantum optical technology to enable the transmission, storage, processing and detection of quantum information in an effort to realise long distance quantum communication to facilitate quantum encryption and distributed quantum computing.
Our approaches are to explore space-based quantum links and quantum repeater networks.
