The University of Basel researchers developed a High-speed quantum memory that can store photons. At the speed of the light, the significant particles travel so in this way the particles are responsible for fast information exchange. This invention of memory is quick as well as straightforward and it could discover application in a future quantum Internet. The experts could store them in a nuclear vapor and read them out again later without changing their properties.

When it comes to fast data transfer in telecommunication networks which utilizes short light heartbeats. Ultra-broadband technology which utilizes optical fiber interfaces using which it is possible to transfer the data at the speed of light. On the other end, the transmitted information must be stored on the system quickly without any interrupt. To maintain a strategic distance from transmission mistakes, each piece of data is encoded in moderately solid light heartbeats that each contain no less than a few many photons.

The experts throughout the world have been dealing with working such systems with single photons. The process of encoding one piece for every photon is extremely productive and it takes into the drastically new type of data preparing in view of the laws of quantum material science. According to this law, which allows the photon to encode 0 and 1 state as well as it enables to encode a superposition of the two states in the meantime. These significant bits are the reason for the quantum data handling that could make unequivocally secure correspondence. The key component for the innovation is to store and recover single photon from quantum memory.

The project led by the Professor Philipp Treutlein and Richard Warburton from Basel University. The breakthrough utilized does not require cooling gadgets and can be executed in a very minimal setup. The analysts were likewise ready to check that the memory has a low clamor level and is appropriate for single photons.

Mr. Janik Wolters, author of the study said, “The combination of a simple setup, high bandwidth, and low noise level is very promising for future application in quantum networks”.
