Making polarization-entangled photon-pair sources for nanosatellites: Size, Weight and Power Considerations
Alexander Ling, Centre for Quantum Technologies, National University of Singapore
Entanglement-distribution is going to be an important element of any future quantum internet. A number of interesting concepts are being considered at the moment, ranging from fiber-compatible quantum repeaters to long-lived quantum memories that can enable quantum states to be physically shipped or trucked. One of the approaches being considered is to utilise free-space links from satellites to enable fast global coverage.
