It has been proposed that secure communication over large distances can be achieved using quantum repeater protocols. Two key components which are required for a repeater are an entangled light source and a quantum memory. The approach investigated here, is to use a protocol which incorporates both a memory and entangled light source using rephased amplified spontaneous emission (RASE). To be a viable repeater, RASE must achieve second long storage times, and efficiencies exceeding 90\%. The...[Show more]
