From University of Strathclyde-Glasgow, Jan. 13, 2021: Fermilab will take part in an international collaboration, led by Cardiff University, on quantum-enhanced interferometry for new physics. The project’s four table-top experiments may help explore new parameter spaces of photon-dark matter interaction, and seek answers to the long-standing question at the heart of modern science: How can gravity be united with the other fundamental forces?
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 Chicago Quantum Exchange, Nov. 23, 2020: The third annual Chicago Quantum Summit brought together more than 20 speakers from across the nation and attracted more than 1,000 attendees from 42 countries. This year’s summit comes on the heels of the announcement of five new Department of Energy National Quantum Information Science Research Centers, one of which is the Fermilab-led Superconducting Quantum Materials and Systems Center. At the summit, each center director gave an overview of their quantum center or institute goals, which included building qubit technologies, developing algorithms for quantum computation, and creating new quantum devices.
The Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, in partnership with the Chicago Quantum Exchange, presents its annual Entrepreneurial Outlook series to discuss important emerging trends in select industries. In Quantum 2020, a panel of expert venture capitalists and entrepreneurs in the field of quantum computing and technology will discuss the state of the industry in 2020 and where they see opportunities for entrepreneurship and innovation within the field. Join a panel of expert venture capitalists and entrepreneurs in the field…
In November, the Chicago Quantum Exchange held a workshop about ethics and societal impacts of artificial intelligence and quantum computing technologies. Participants from a wide variety of academic backgrounds, from physicists to sociologists, discussed the implications of technology on society and vice versa and identified critical steps scientists need to take so technology is developed and implemented ethically and responsibly.
In 1999, Nature published the first demonstration of a superconducting quantum bit, or qubit, a feat that relied on trillions of atoms operating in nearly perfect synchrony so that their collective, macroscopic, quantum state was either in 0, 1, or any desired complex superposition of the two. Chad Rigetti, CEO and founder of Rigetti Computing, will give insight into their efforts as a full-stack quantum computing start-up that has provided 24/7 cloud access to quantum processors since 2017.
Don’t miss our colloquium speaker this Monday, Chad Rigetti, CEO and founder of Rigetti Computing. He will give insight into the quantum computing start-up’s efforts in quantum processors. He will describe system design considerations and challenges as industry scales up quantum technologies to hundreds of superconducting qubits that are continuously operated at temperatures colder than space, entangled and read out by a complex symphony of radio-frequency control electronics, as well as custom R&D solutions developed to satisfy demands imposed by…
The Chicago Quantum Exchange is looking for a logo. We invite designers and design-inspired scientists from any of the CQE institutions to submit their logo ideas for use on our website, pamphlets and other material. Please submit your logo design here. If your design is chosen, you will receive a prize of $500. CQE members are encouraged to participate and to share this opportunity with all creative colleagues and students. Our contest is open to anyone affiliated with the CQE institutions – UChicago, Argonne, Fermilab, UIUC…
