A photonic quantum memory is provided. The photonic quantum memory includes entanglement basis conversion module configured to receive a first polarization-entangled photon pair and to produce a second entangled photon pair. The second polarization-entangled photon pair can he a time-bin entangled or a propagation direction-entangled photon pair. The photonic quantum memory further includes a photonic storage configured to receive the second entangled photon pair from the basis conversion module and to store the second entangled photon pair.
