Dear Colleague,

The Budapest Distributed Quantum Systems seminar series continues with the
following talk:

NetSquid, a discrete-event simulation platform for quantum networks
Tim Coopmans (Delft)

Time: Feb 25 Thursday, 14:30
Location: online in Teams

About the speaker: Tim Coopmans is a PhD student in the groups of David
Elkouss and Stephanie Wehner (Delft University of Technology), working on the
analysis of quantum network protocols. Before that, Tim wrote his master
thesis in certification of quantum states under supervision of Jed Kaniewski
(then at University of Copenhagen) and Christian Schaffner (University of
Amsterdam). His work focuses mostly on long-distance entanglement generation
using intermediate nodes known as quantum repeaters. In his spare time, Tim
aspires to be a good amateur jazz pianist (with varying success).

Abstract: NetSquid is a generic discrete-event based platform for simulating
quantum information networks and modular quantum computing systems developed
by QuTech (TU Delft / TNO). Its use ranges from the physical layer hardware
and the control plane all the way to the application level. NetSquid's main
aim is accurate physical simulation, not the least capturing
time-dependencies. In this talk, I will introduce NetSquid and discuss
several use cases to showcase its power, including long-distance entanglement
generation using nitrogen-vacancy centers and atomic-ensemble hardware.
NetSquid is freely available for non-commerical use at
The website also contains a 10-minute guide to get started and references to
code snippets made by other users.
