Harvard and MIT researchers have found a way to correct for signal loss in quantum computing with a prototype quantum node that can catch, store, and entangle bits of quantum information. A quantum internet could be used to send unhackable messages, improve the accuracy of GPS, and enable cloud-based quantum computing. The research was published in Nature.
According to the Harvard and MIT team, the breakthrough is the missing link toward a practical quantum internet and a major step forward in the development of long-distance quantum networks.
“This demonstration is a conceptual breakthrough that could extend the longest possible range of quantum networks and potentially enable many new applications in a manner that is…READ MORE
