Quantum Hub

Satellite communications are an essential element to expand quantum communications beyond the limits of fibre based links, towards the realization of a global network based on quantum states.

Furthermore, free-space communications are necessary in those situations where a fiber-based connection cannot be established, such as for drone, vehicles or ships communications.

The Vigo Satellite Quantum Hub will develop infrastructures, techniques and experiments to progress in this field. By developing dedicated terminals and establishing high-performance optical links within and beyond Earth atmosphere, and through collaborations at national and international level, the research group will develop a ground-to-space interface for optical and quantum communication.
