Quan­ten-Re­pea­ter Platt­for­men auf der Ba­sis von Halb­lei­tern (QuaHL-Rep)

This project is a national cooperative project supported by the German Ministry of Eduction and Research (BMBF) and is entitled "Quanten-Repeater Plattformen auf der Basis von Halbleitern" (QuaHL-Rep). The overall objective of the project is the development of material platforms that are suitable for the realization of the quantum repeater protocols to transmit secure quantum information over large distances. To fulfill the tasks of the QuaHL-Rep, thirteen groups were brought together to work on different approaches.
