Quantum communication and distributed quantum sensing and computing networks will require efficient and robust quantum communication and teleportation protocols and capabilities. Quantum information is generated, processed, and stored locally in quantum nodes. At any stage in the development of quantum technologies — quantum communication, computing, and sensing — there will be a limit to the capabilities of a single quantum node; surpassing these single-node limitations will require linking multiple nodes together to form a quantum network. In these quantum networks, nodes are linked by quantum channels which distribute quantum entanglement between all of the nodes and transfer quantum information from node to node. The Laboratory for Telecommunication Sciences performs research at the intersection of quantum physics and security to develop the protocols and technologies necessary to reliably and securely transport quantum information in quantum networks.
