Presentations

5:00 - 6:00

Building a Quantum-Capable Internet (FM1C.1)
Presenter: Eden Figueroa, SUNY Stony Brook

We will review how to build entanglement distribution networks that are managed and controlled using the classical internet stack. We will also show implementations of these concepts in the Stony Brook - BNL quantum internet testbed.

Authors:Eden Figueroa, SUNY Stony Brook

6:00 - 6:15

White Rabbit-Assisted Quantum Network Node Synchronization With Quantum Channel Coexistence (FM1C.2)
Presenter: Thomas Gerrits, National Inst of Standards & Technology

We show that the Ethernet-based time transfer protocol ‘White Rabbit’ can synchronize two distant quantum-networked nodes to within 4 ps, enabling HOM interference at >90 % visibility using 17.6 ps FWHM single-photons coexisting with White Rabbit.

Noise Rejection Through an Improved Quantum Illumination Protocol (FM1C.3)
Presenter: Thomas Gregory, University of Glasgow

We demonstrate an improved full-field quantum illumination protocol that achieves the rejection of 99.9% of background light. This imaging protocol has applications in covert imaging and quantum LIDAR schemes.

Synchronizing a Quantum Local Area Network With White Rabbit (FM1C.4)
Presenter: Muneer Alshowkan, Oak Ridge National Laboratory

We demonstrate a scalable quantum local area network architecture using White Rabbit timing components. Synchronizing three distant nodes with ultralow timing jitter, we obtain significantly improved entanglement distribution fidelity over previous results with GPS clocks.

Fast Neural-Network-Enhanced Quantum Imaging (FM1C.5)
Presenter: Chané Moodley, University of the Witwatersrand

Quantum ghost imaging is a promising technique limited by time-efficiency. We implemented novel deep neural networks to enhance and denoise the reconstructed image, and to establish early image recognition leading to 5x faster imaging speeds.
