Professor HJ Kimble
Is much larger than a thimble
And a veritable symbol
Of the physicist today.
Could it be prodigious height
Explains his knack for squeezing light
Or is Jeff’s mind extremely bright?
I guess that’s hard to say…
Jeff wants to build a quantum net
It seems quite hard, but still I bet
Someday we’ll get there, just not yet.
There’ll be a slight delay.
At least they’ve made a quantum node,
That’s a start along the road.
They showed a photon could be stowed
And then released. Okay?
Jeff’s students stay up very late
And try to share a quantum state
Between two nodes. But when you wait
Once entanglement is strong
And they can make it last quite long
One node could be inside
The other in
And once the quantum net’s begun
We’re going to have a lot of fun
Exploiting work that Jeff has done
Here’s what he has to say!
