From Daily Herald, Oct. 9, 2018: The U.S. Department of Energy has announced that it has awarded scientists at its Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory more than $10 million to spur research that could revolutionize not only our understanding of nature, but also the very way we investigate it.
From Crain’s Chicago Business, Sept. 20, 2018: University of Chicago Professor David Awschalom says that accelerating quantum research is critical for Chicago, which is uniquely positioned to help lead the nation, thanks to its University of Chicago, Argonne National Laboratory and Fermilab. The decisions the U.S. makes now will determine the role it plays in a technology that could deliver a generational leap forward if we are bold enough to seize the opportunity.
From University of Chicago, May 8, 2018: A number of breakthroughs have made it possible for scientists to encode and manipulate information in quantum systems. Scientists at UChicago’s Institute for Molecular Engineering,which formed a hub with Fermilab and Argonne called the Chicago Quantum Exchange, are fleshing out the fundamental rules of controlling such systems.
