Portuguese Abstract: Steady technological advances are paving the way for the implementation of the quantum internet, a network of locations interconnected by quantum channels. Here we propose a model to simulate a quantum internet based on optical fibers and employ network-theory techniques to characterize the statistical properties of the photonic networks it generates. Our model predicts a continuous phase transition between a disconnected and a highly connected phase and that the typical photonic networks do not present the small world property. We compute the critical exponents characterizing the phase transition, provide quantitative estimates for the minimum density of nodes needed to have a fully connected network and for the average distance between nodes. Our results thus provide quantitative benchmarks for the development of a quantum internet
