Georgia Tech researchers are claiming a 200-fold increase in quantum memory story times, making the technology feasible for secure, long-distance quantum networking. The short refresh time of current quantum mechanisms have limited them to point-to-point connections. By extending the refresh time for quantum memories into the millisecond realm, the Georgia Tech researchers may have made repeaters much easier to implement.
