About This Webinar
The internet has had a revolutionary impact on our world. The vision of quantum internet — capable of transmitting quantum information — will provide novel applications that are provably impossible by communicating only classical information. An outstanding challenge of building large-scale quantum networks is to establish a quantum channel that can connect remote parties efficiently. Direct quantum communication with optical fiber network over continental scale suffers from fiber attenuation and exponential reduction of communication rate. To overcome this challenge, quantum repeaters and quantum satellites have been proposed and demonstrated to boost communication rates over long distances.

In this talk, Liang Jiang, Ph.D., of the University of Chicago will introduce these technologies with the promise of enabling global quantum networks. In addition, Jiang will discuss related research frontiers and promising applications of quantum internet. The webinar will conclude with a live Q&A.
