Brief description This project aims to combine Australia’s pioneering work developing specialised atom-filled optical fibres with world-leading quantum information storage protocols to probe the extreme limits of atom-light interactions. This will enable the creation of a compact, robust and modular node to efficiently store and process packets of optical quantum information. The node will integrate directly with current communications infrastructure, enabling the creation of a quantum Internet - the vital missing ingredient needed to overcome experimental hurdles that limit quantum technologies. This project is expected to enable the rapid uptake of quantum technology, boosting Australia’s capacity in this burgeoning field.
