A team of experts headed by the Australian National University (ANU) is hard at work developing a data superhighway for the quantum internet. They plan to use light particles as data storage devices since they can hoard information in vast quantities, according to ANU Associate Professor Andrey Sukhorukov, leader of the research team at the Nonlinear Physics Center of the ANU Research School of Physics and Engineering.

“The light particles move really fast so, for quality-control purposes, we’ve developed a way to monitor and measure them along quantum circuits, which are like superhighways for the light particles to travel along,” says Sukhorukov.
