Quantum Networking

University of Arizona scientists and engineers are leading the national vision for quantum networks, making the university ground zero in research that lays the foundation for quantum-enabled breakthroughs in communications, medicine, space exploration, and more.

The university’s Center for Quantum Networking (CQN) made significant advances in its second year, including

  • demonstrating quantum-state transfer over a 43-km fiber link
  • early designs for satellite-based quantum networks
  • new master’s program in optical sciences with an emphasis in quantum

Quantum promises future-proof security of transmissions no matter the level of quantum sophistication of the adversary.
