First commercial quantum memory sale announced
Quantum internet company Qunnect has announced the sale of the world's first commercial quantum memory to Brookhaven National Laboratory, a United States Department of Energy national laboratory.

Quantum memories are critical components for enabling future quantum-secure networks, as they support distributed entanglement communication protocols, and serve as core components in quantum repeaters. The company says that its quantum memory stores and releases single photons, on-demand, while preserving their quantum state at a fidelity above 95%.

Unlike other quantum memory technologies, says the company, it is unique in providing a solution that does not require extreme cooling or vacuum support infrastructure for operation - a key design consideration for real-world deployment and scaling. All devices are also housed in standard server-rack form-factor for installation in existing fiber hubs.

The Quantum Memory is the core of the company's Quantum Repeater product suite, which includes a device to generate entangled photons, ultra-high precision timing and frequency network references, fiber channel calibrators, and a transaction station to perform entanglement distribution protocols. The company says that it is engineering these devices to interface with low interface loss and telecommunications infrastructure.

"We are very proud to be the first company to bring a quantum memory to the commercial market," says Qunnect CEO, Noel Goddard. "As fiber-based quantum testbeds are being built across the globe, we look forward to supporting their infrastructure."

The company says that it hopes to realize prototypes of the full Quantum Repeater product suite in early 2022.
