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 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.

From Engadget: July 23, 2020: The Department of Energy has provided a blueprint strategy for a prototype national quantum internet that could be completed within 10 years. DOE’s 17 national labs would serve as the backbone of the network. Argonne National Laboratory and the University of Chicago built a 52-mile quantum network through unused fiber, and it should expand to 80 miles once Fermilab connects to the system.

From the Hyde Park Herald, July 23, 2020: The Department of Energy put out its new report on a strategy for the creation and development of a national quantum internet, an innovation with significant scientific and technological implications. In February, Argonne created a 52-mile quantum entanglement loop in the western suburbs — one of the longest such networks in the country. The loop will soon be connected to Fermilab’s headquarters in Batavia, forming an 80-mile network that will function as a test bed.

From WGN9, July 23, 2020: The future of the internet is being designed right here in Chicago, as some of the top scientists in the world unveiled their plans to research and build a “quantum internet” on July 23. Fermilab, Argonne, University of Chicago, Northwestern, and University of Illinois have already laid some of the groundwork.

In a July 23 press conference at the University of Chicago, the U.S. Department of Energy unveiled a report that lays out a blueprint strategy for the development of a national quantum internet. In February, DOE national laboratories, universities and industry met in New York City to develop the strategy, laying out the essential research to be accomplished, describing the engineering and design barriers and setting near-term goals. DOE’s 17 national laboratories will serve as the backbone of the coming…

From Inside HPC, July 23, 2020: The Department of Energy unveiled on July 23 a strategy for the development of a national quantum internet intended to bring “the United States to the forefront of the global quantum race and usher in a new era of communications.” Earlier this year, Argonne National Laboratory and the University of Chicago entangled photons across a 52-mile “quantum loop” in the Chicago suburbs, “successfully establishing one of the longest land-based quantum networks in the nation,” according to DOE. That network will be connected to Fermilab, establishing a three-node, 80-mile test bed.
