A Single qubit coherence time record

  1. Apr 14, 2016 #1
    Is it possible yet to store a single qubit for an extended period of time? If I only care about storing a BB84 state, is it possible to take (say) 128 of these single qubit storages? They're not entangled and I don't need to send them through any general quantum circuitry.

    Storing unentangled qubits is just as hard as storing entangled qubits. You won't be able to store 128 of them anytime soon. Not for more than a tiny fraction of a second, anyways.

    Give it another year or five.
