A method of quantum transport between quantum nodes using stationary lights is presented. The quantum transport of a single photon or a quantum state from one node to another is performed by a slow light phenomenon, where the transport time and path between nodes are classically determined. With both no-mirror-cavity characteristics of the stationary light and propagation velocity control of the slow light, the quantum transport has potential applications in quantum information sciences such as type-II quantum computing and quantum communications.
