quantum information

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.
