How to build a quantum internet
What do lasers, and microwaves have to do with trampolines? If you want to make a quantum internet it might be helpful to find out. Low temperature superconducting circuits can be used to exploit the laws on quantum mechanics, and laser technology can be used to form a quantum communication network. The problem is that hot lasers and cold superconductors don’t play nice together. Which is where the trampoline comes in. This talk will discuss state-of-the art cleanroom fabrication and how it allows us to build a device for converting quantum signals between lasers and microwaves.
