Special Issue "The Quantum Internet"
A special issue of Future Internet (ISSN 1999-5903).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 August 2019
It is my pleasure to announce a Special Issue of Future Internet on “The Quantum Internet”.
The quantum internet is an infrastructure that enables the transmission and routing of quantum information, enabling long-distance quantum communication and cryptography, distributed quantum computing, and greatly enhanced precision metrology and sensing. One could break down the challenges of achieving a global quantum network into the following:
- Encoding and decoding quantum information between memories and carriers;
- Preserving quantum information en-route;
- Routing quantum information;
- Conceiving and improving quantum communication protocols.
Accordingly, I invite submissions on the following topics: quantum interconnects (e.g., on-demand entanglement links, quantum memories, etc.), quantum repeaters and bosonic error correction, quantum networking and protocols for distributed quantum computing, quantum cryptography, and quantum communications.
I believe that this Special Issue is an opportunity to strengthen the connection between the research communities that are developing the various aspects of the world’s future quantum communication infrastructure.
