To achieve these ambitious goals, our team consists of people from both computer science and physics. We work towards:
- Contribution to and coordination of the European efforts within the Quantum Internet Alliance of bringing Quantum Internet technology steps closer to realization and eventually the market.
- New or improved software applications and protocols for quantum networks, with a focus on resource efficiency and performance in near-term quantum networks.
- A blueprint for the future development of a large-scale Quantum Internet factoring in hardware parameters, network architecture and control plane performance, using our purpose-built simulator NetSquid.
- Design and implementation of a software and network stack for a Quantum Internet, thereby turning quantum networks from ad-hoc physics experiments to a well-defined and robust technology.
