Coherent router for quantum networks with superconducting qubits

Scalable quantum information processing will require quantum networks of qubits with the ability to coherently transfer quantum states between the desired sender and receiver nodes. Here we propose a scheme to implement a quantum router that can direct quantum states from an input qubit to a preselected output qubit. The path taken by the transferred quantum state is controlled by the state of one or more ancilla qubits. This enables both directed transport between a sender and a number of receiver nodes, and generation of distributed entanglement in the network. We demonstrate the general idea using a two-output setup and discuss how the quantum routing may be expanded to several outputs. We also present a possible realization of our ideas with superconducting circuits.
