From The Wall Street Journal, July 23, 2020: The network, which uses quantum principles to more securely transmit data, could be functional in about a decade. Argonne National Laboratory and the University of Chicago established in February a quantum network of 52 miles’ worth of entangled photons running on unused telecom fiber in the Chicago suburbs. In about a year, the network is expected to be connected to Fermilab, creating an 80-mile quantum internet test bed.

Fermilab’s Office of Partnerships and Technology Transfer and Argonne’s Science and Technology Partnerships and Outreach Directorate cordially invite you to attend “Technology Commercialization 101” featuring Jason Pariso from the Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation. The event takes place at Argonne on Wednesday, March 20, from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

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.”
