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.
From Xantek (Russia), March 3, 2021: This Russian science publication updates quantum experiments over the past year during the pandemic that included Fermilab’s quantum teleportation experiment led by Panagiotis Spentzouris, head of the Fermilab quantum science program.
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 Big Think, Jan. 10, 2021: The quantum breakthrough Fermilab and its partners made in teleporting qubits over a fiber-optic network more than 27 miles highlights how close — and how far — modern science is from sci fi.
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 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.
A joint team of researchers at Fermilab and partner institutions have achieved quantum teleportation, teleporting information over a distance of 44 kilometers. The remarkable achievement supports the premise that scientists and engineers can build a workable and high-fidelity quantum network using practical devices.
