Quantum memories for photons are regarded as one of the fundamental building blocks of linear-optical quantum computation and long-distance quantum communication. A long standing goal in scalable quantum information processing is to build a long-lived and efficient quantum memory. There have been significant efforts distributed towards this direction. So far, efficient but short-lived or long-lived but inefficient quantum memories have been demonstrated. However, either a low efficiency or a short lifetime severely limits the scalability of any quantum information protocols. Here we report a high-performance quantum memory in which long lifetime and high retrieval efficiency meet for the first time. We present the realization of a quantum memory with an intrinsic spin wave to photon conversion efficiency of 73(2)% together with a storage lifetime of 3.2(1) ms. This realization provides an essential tool towards realistic scalable linear-optical quantum information processing.
