Talsma, Marit (author)The quantum internet improves upon the classical internet with several new possibilities. However, to create such a quantum internet, metropolitan hubs (for this research we will use an Entanglement Generation Switch  EGS  as hub) are needed to avoid a scaling problem when connecting all end nodes individually with one another. These EGSs...master thesis 2024

Stevense, Wesley (author)We perform a numerical optimisation of the hardware parameters of an atomicensemblebased single repeater setup. The setup operates on a reallife fiber network connecting the cities Delft and Eindhoven. Besides this network, the setup encompasses photon pair sources, quantum memories, single photon detectors, and 50:50 beam splitters. The...master thesis 2024

Stephens, Emlyn (author)Quantum communication provides a plethora of new possibilities compared to the realm of classical communication. Since the channels used are noisy, losses are unavoidable, and quantum repeaters are needed to transmit a signal over longer distances to overcome these exponential losses. To increase the performance of these repeaters, cutoff times...master thesis 2023

van Loevezijn, Wout (author)Benchmarks for quantum network systems currently are an underrepresented subject in the research field. This paper evaluates how informative a distributed CNOT gate application is, in recognizing errors in the total quantum system. The goal is to decide whether it should be included as a benchmark in a newly developed benchmark suite for quantum...bachelor thesis 2023

Dekeling, Casper (author)In the development of any new technology, it is essential to have methods to assess the quality of a system, to compare different systems to one another, and to compare different versions of the same system, to see if changes to the system can actually be classified as improvements. For quantum networks, this is no different. To further develop...bachelor thesis 2023

Chopra, Arnav (author)Quantum networks provide numerous potential benefits over classical networks, such as enhanced security and faster computation, making their further development a lucrative prospect. As is the case with any technology, the advancement of quantum networks relies on the development of frameworks to test their quality, and compare different...bachelor thesis 2023

MALIAPPIS, THOMAS (author)The rapid advancement of Quantum Network architectures necessitates a comprehensive and quantitative comparison to assess their effectiveness and performance. Unfortunately, there does not exist an implemented quantum network benchmark suite capable of determining the superior architecture. Hence, our study aims to establish the foundation for...bachelor thesis 2023

Jirovská, Hana (author)The goal of quantum application scheduling is to enable the execution of applications on a quantum network. As the final step in the application scheduling process, program scheduling locally schedules execution of blocks of instructions on each node by defining socalled node schedules. In this thesis, we present a formal definition of program...master thesis 2023

Dorland, Bob (author)Quantum networks offer more capabilities than classical networks. For example, quantum networks can solve certain problems faster than classical networks and they can even solve problems which cannot be solved with classical networks. One wellknown quantum network application is blind quantum computing (BQC). In a BQC application a client node...master thesis 2023

Talsma, Lars (author)Quantum computers can solve certain problems faster than classical computers, but they require many qubits to solve valuable problems. Distributed quantum computing provides a scalable approach to increasing the number of qubits by interconnecting smallcapacity quantum devices, or quantum nodes. Entangled states shared between nodes, socalled...master thesis 2023

MIYAWAKI, YU (author)Entanglement is an essential resource for a variety of applications, such as distributed quantum computing and quantum cryptography. However, longdistance entanglement generation is challenging because of two reasons: photon loss occurs as an exponential function of distance through an optical fiber and the nocloning theorem prevent us from...master thesis 2022

van Dam, Janice (author)For a global quantum communication network, we need to have long distance links over which we can distribute entangled photon pairs. Due to exponential losses, using optical fibres alone is unfeasible. Quantum repeaters extend the range of quantum networks, but intercontinental links are still unfeasible. Because of this, research has gone...master thesis 2022

Abrahams, Joël (author)Quantum networks allow multiple devices to exchange information encoded within quantum systems.<br/>Such quantum networks use classical control messages to coordinate entanglement between nodes.<br/>Third parties which can forge such control messages may interfere with the workings of quantum links, however:<br/>They may either perform...master thesis 2022

Labay Mora, Adrià (author)Distribution of highquality entanglement over long distances is a key step for the development of a future quantum internet. Exponential photon loss related to distance in optical fibres makes it impractical to connect two nodes directly. Furthermore, the impossibility of copying general quantum states forbids using the same solutions as in...master thesis 2021

Mor Ruiz, Maria Flors (author)Quantum communication can enable new features that are provably impossible with classical communication alone. However, the optical fibers used to send the quantum information are inherently lossy. To overcome the exponential losses over distance socalled quantum repeaters are needed to amplify the signal. As opposed to memorybased approaches,...master thesis 2021

Betanzo Sanchez, Fernando (author)The testing of quantum applications can be approached from three perspectives. The first one concerns the certification of the accuracy of the quantum device where the application is run. The second one has to do with the classical verification of the result output by the application. Yet a third one addresses the problem from the software...master thesis 2020

Skrzypczyk, Matthew (author)Quantum networks are networks composed of quantum processors that facilitate the exchange of information in the form of quantum bits, also called qubits. Qubits observe a physical phenomenon known as entanglement that enables the transmission of quantum information over long distances as well as the realization of novel protocols and...master thesis 2020
