Fermilab’s quantum program includes a number of leading-edge research initiatives that build on the lab’s unique capabilities as the U.S. center for high-energy physics and a leader in quantum physics research. On the tour, researchers discussed quantum technologies for communication, high-energy physics experiments, algorithms and theory, and superconducting qubits hosted in superconducting radio-frequency cavities.
From 9 to 5 Google, Nov. 15, 2018: The LHC’s massive physics experiments will require computing capacity that is an estimated 50-100 times higher than today. Google finds the challenge exciting and has already been working with Fermilab and Brookhaven National Laboratory to store and analyze data from the LHC using the Google Computer Engine.
From The Chicago Maroon, Nov. 12, 2018: Fermilab Chief Research Officer Joe Lykken appears in this overview of the Nov. 8-9 Chicago Quantum Summit.
From the Department of Energy, Nov. 8, 2018: Working with interagency partners, DOE is striving to advance the quantum frontier.
From Daily Herald, Nov. 4, 2018: University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign researchers and Chicago-area scientists are working to create a communications network that can withstand hacking.
From Chicago Maroon, Nov. 1, 2018: UChicago and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign will collaborate with Argonne National Laboratory and Fermilab in an effort to establish Chicago as a national epicenter of quantum technology research, Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced at the Polsky Center this Tuesday.
On Nov. 8, join Hartmut Neven, founder and manager of Google’s Quantum Artificial Intelligence lab, and David Awschalom, head of the Chicago Quantum Exchange, to hear more about the progress and promise of quantum technology, and the role that Chicago can play in ensuring the U.S. leadership in this critical area of research.

From Chicago Tribune, Oct. 30, 2018: Researchers from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign are joining Argonne and Fermilab in creating a network that could ultimately pave the way for communication that can’t be hacked.
From Chicago Sun-Times, Oct. 30, 2018: Fermilab Deputy Director Joe Lykken: “There’s a lot of hype out there, but I think it is a fair analogy to say this is like the World Wide Web when there were only three websites … We really are at the beginning of something that we think is going to be transformative, not just for science but for the whole world.”
