Abstract

Quantum networking needs knowledge of the quality of a connection in order for quantum error correction to work. We are designing a classical network protocol to support quantum state analysis procedures such as tomography. This paper sketches the protocol as well as summarizes the fundamental scheme of two-node quantum communication using photons. Our protocol is a master-slave protocol. We show that we need around 2000-3000 (42000-60000) Bell pairs for tomography to achieve F > 0.99 (0.999). These stringent performance requirements result in long bootstrap times for individual network links, and suggest that tomography is inappropriate during the establishment of individual connections across a network.
