Optical approaches to modular quantum computers

Quantum computing technology research has been a fast-growing academic field since the start of the century. In recent years, it has become apparent that in order to perform large, useful computations on a quantum computer, one must link multiple smaller quantum computers via a quantum communication channel, much in the same way that modern classical computers link many processor cores. This research project will study the limitations of currently demonstrated techniques for interconnecting quantum computers, advance the basic technologies of these techniques to design a viable interconnect, and explore new innovations to accelerate the achievement of modular quantum computers.
