Brief description This project aims to determine whether applications of small quantum devices for communication are commercially feasible with today's or tomorrow's technology. One of the main challenges when engineering future quantum information processors is that complex quantum states are hard to prepare and control and there will be severe limitations on the size of quantum computers for the foreseeable future. Most proposals for applications of quantum information processing require very large quantum computers. The goal of this project is to investigate applications in communication where it is expected that a small quantum device will lead to an advantage over classical systems.
