  • System Design for a Long-Line Quantum Repeater

    Van Meter Rodney

    IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking 17 ( 3 ) 1002-1013 2009.06

    Research paper (scientific journal), Joint Work, Accepted,  ISSN  1063-6692

     View Summary

    We present a new control algorithm and system design for a network of
    quantum repeaters, and outline the end-to-end protocol architecture.
    Such a network will create long-distance quantum states, supporting
    quantum key distribution as well as distributed quantum computation.
    Quantum repeaters improve the reduction of quantum-communication
    throughput with distance from exponential to polynomial. Because a
    quantum state cannot be copied, a quantum repeater is not a signal
    amplifier. Rather, it executes algorithms for quantum teleportation
    in conjunction with a specialized type of quantum error correction
    called {em purification} to raise the {em fidelity} of the quantum
    states. We introduce our {em banded} purification scheme, which is
    especially effective when the fidelity of coupled qubits is low,
    improving the prospects for experimental realization of such systems.
    The resulting throughput is calculated via detailed simulations of a
    long line composed of shorter hops. Our algorithmic improvements
    increase throughput by a factor of up to fifty compared to earlier
    approaches, for a broad range of physical characteristics.

  • High-Bandwidth Hybrid Quantum Repeater

    Van Meter Rodney

    Physical Review Letters 101   040502 2008.07

    Research paper (scientific journal), Joint Work, Accepted

     View Summary

    We present a physical- and link-level design for the creation of entangled pairs to be used in quantum
    repeater applications where one can control the noise level of the initially distributed pairs. The system
    can tune dynamically, trading initial fidelity for success probability, from high fidelity pairs (F
    ���� 0:98 or
    above) to moderate fidelity pairs. The same physical resources that create the long-distance entanglement
    are used to implement the local gates required for entanglement purification and swapping, creating a
    homogeneous repeater architecture. Optimizing the noise properties of the initially distributed pairs
    significantly improves the rate of generating long-distance Bell pairs. Finally, we discuss the performance
    trade-off between spatial and temporal resources.
