Protocol Development

Quantum protocols form the theoretical basis for conveying and manipulating quantum information. This underpins the power of both quantum networks and quantum information processing.  Led by Dr Austin Lund based at The University of Queensland, the focus of the Protocol Development Work Package is on developing protocols that can be implemented on the quantum processing and networking platforms developed at CQC²T.
