Maximizing entanglement distribution rate over transcontinental distances

siddhartha santra

US Army Research Laboratory

Dr. Santra received his PhD for his work on quantum information theory from the University of Southern California, Los Angeles in 2014. Since then he has been a member of the Quantum networking group at the US Army Research Lab, in Adelphi and is currently working on quantum networking protocols and applications.


Entanglement distribution over long distances is crucial for future quantum technology applications such as quantum key distribution and quantum networks. Quantum communication based on single photons offers unconditional... [ view full abstract ]
