Diamonds Could Be Best Friend to Quantum Communications (image) Princeton University, Engineering School Share Print E-Mail Caption A Princeton-led research team has created diamonds that contain defects capable of storing and transmitting quantum information for use in a future 'quantum internet.' The defects can take and store quantum information in the form of electrons for relatively long periods of time and link it efficiently to photons.
