From Data Center Knowledge, Feb. 3, 2021: That Fermilab and partners achieved sustained, high-fidelity quantum teleportation has big implications in many fields. Fermilab scientist, Panagiotis Spentzouris talks about what the results could mean for the future of data centers.

From Mashable, Jan. 19, 2021: In a huge breakthrough, a team of researchers from Caltech, Fermilab, AT&T, Harvard, NASA and the University of Calgary teleported quantum information over a fiber-optic network of 44 kilometers. This video shares how high-fidelity quantum teleportation lays the groundwork for a functional quantum internet, making the internet faster and more secure, and its technological and societal implications.

From Interesting Engineering, Jan. 5, 2021: A recent breakthroughs in transmitting, storing, and manipulating quantum information have convinced some physicists that a simple proof of principle for a quantum network is imminent. In 2017, a number of institutions partnered with Fermilab to begin constructing a quantum network hosted at Fermilab.

From CNN, Dec. 29, 2020: Researchers are trying to harness the counterintuitive behavior of quantum mechanics to build quantum computers, leading eventually to a quantum internet. The effort isn’t just an abstract goal of academics; it has been identified by the U.S. government as an important national initiative. In this opinion piece, Fermilab scientist Don Lincoln discusses the recent quantum teleportation milestone at Fermilab and the quantum internet.

From VICE, Dec. 17, 2020: Fermilab and partners have successfully teleported qubits across 22 kilometers of fiber in two testbeds. The breakthrough is a step towards a practical, high-fidelity quantum internet. Fermilab scientist and Quantum Science Program Head Panagiotis Spentzouris is quoted in this article.

From Inside Science, Nov. 12, 2020: A recent experiment has created a one-way quantum network between two labs, reaching a milestone on the path to creating a quantum internet. Fermilab Deputy Director Joe Lykken weighs in.
