Recent years have witnessed astounding progress in the ability to control quantum systems making the vision to create working quantum networks more realistic than ever. A key component in any quantum network is certainly the interface between stationary and flying carriers of information. One avenue towards a reliable interface makes use of macroscopic atomic ensembles to distribute fragile quantum states over many particles. We review here our experiments and recent progress with atomic samples in different temperature regimes and with non-classical light sources of suitable spectral characteristics for efficient coupling to atomic ensembles.
