A distillation protocol is developed that enhances entanglement between distant nodes of a quantum network. Entangle, swap, purify, repeat The key to a successful quantum internet will be the ability to generate robust entanglement between distant quantum memories. Unavoidable interactions with the environment, however, generally result in the loss of entanglement. Kalb et al. describe an entanglement distillation protocol that could be used to enhance the purity and robustness of entanglement… Expand
