Anton Zeilinger, who received the 2022 Nobel Prize in Physics, pioneered research on quantum teleportation and entanglement swapping. These technologies are instrumental in the success of the Illinois-Express Quantum Network, which recently published a paper outlining its design concepts and implementation. The technologies are also the basis for the quantum devices that generate the network.
Whether he is on the side of a mountain or working at the Fermilab Quantum Institute, Cristián Peña likes to explore the unknown and tackle new challenges. Although he spends most of his time working on quantum communication systems for FQI, Peña dedicates time to work on the CMS experiment. His work between the two experiments, while different in practice, are conceptually similar.
