From Argonne National Laboratory, Aug. 5, 2020: The U.S. Department of Energy’s Advanced Scientific Computing Research Leadership Computing Challenge has awarded 24 projects a total of 5.74 million node hours at the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility to pursue challenging, high-risk, high-payoff simulations. Fermilab scientists Andreas Kronfeld and Igor Rakhno are among those who have been awarded time on the facility’s Theta supercomputer.
From Photonics, July 27, 2020: The U.S. Department of Energy has unveiled a blueprint strategy for the development of a national quantum internet, reaffirming its commitment to widening the nation’s quantum capabilities by relying on its 17 national laboratories to serve as the backbone of the coming quantum internet and the secure transmission of information.
From HIT Infrastructure, July 30, 2020: The Department of Energy has unveiled a blueprint strategy for national quantum internet within the next decade to usher in an era of more secure communication, with health services slated to be early adopters. Already, scientists from Argonne National Laboratory and the University of Chicago intertwined photons across a 52-mile quantum loop. That network will soon be connected to Fermilab, creating three-node, 80-mile test bed.
From CTOvision.com, July 27, 2020: The U.S. Department of Energy has unveiled a report that lays out a blueprint strategy for the development of a national quantum internet, bringing the United States to the forefront of the global quantum race and ushering in a new era of communications.
From The Science Times, July 25, 2020: The Department of Energy officials unveiled a blueprint strategy for a national quantum internet. The DOE is working with university and industry researchers, aiming to develop a prototype within this decade.
From New Atlas, July 26, 2020: The United States government is outlining its own plans to develop a national quantum internet. The blueprint was developed at a meeting in February by the DOE national laboratories, various universities and industry. The report lays out four areas of research that should be made a priority in order to develop the quantum internet and outlines five milestones that will mark the path toward making it a reality.
From The Hindu, July 27, 2020: The The U.S. Department of Energy announced that it is working toward a national quantum internet that will rely on the movement and interaction of subatomic particles to control and transmit information. Scientists from Argonne National Laboratory and the University of Chicago have already created a quantum network in the Chicago suburbs. It will soon connect it to its Fermilab, creating an 80-mile test bed.
From Built In Chicago, July 24, 2020: The Department of Energy has unveiled a plan to develop nationwide quantum internet — and Illinois is at the center of it. DOE representatives announced that Fermilab, Argonne National Laboratory and University of Chicago will play a key role in developing quantum internet for all.
From FedScoop, July 23, 2020: The Department of Energy identified essential research, engineering and design barriers and near-term goals for developing nationwide quantum internet in a blueprint released on July 23. DOE‘s 17 national laboratories will form the foundation of a system for secure communication using quantum mechanics, the prototype for which is expected within the next decade.
From ITPro, July 23, 2020: An unhackable quantum internet could be realized within a decade, the U.S. Department of Energy has announced. The government body laid out a blueprint strategy for the development of a national quantum network on July 23. In Argonne National Laboratory and the University of Chicago successfully established one of the longest land-based quantum networks in the U.S., and it will soon be connected to the Fermilab as a three-node, 80-mile test bed.
