  • Argonne Quantum Loop – an important step in developing national quantum internet

    Scientists from the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory and the University of Chicago entangled photons across a 52-mile network in the Chicago suburbs, an important step in developing a national quantum internet. Read More

  • Energy leading way to tomorrow's quantum internet

    Imagine a completely secure network, one that cannot be cracked no matter how sophisticated the cyber assailant or how determined the hack. Further, imagine that the network connects computers that can solve challenges of incredible complexity – problems that are literally beyond the reach of today’s fastest systems– and joins together devices in a quantum internet-of-things, opening up whole new areas of scientific research.

  • Creating the heart of a quantum computer: Developing qubits

    A computer is suspended from the ceiling. Delicate lines and loops of silvery wires and tubes connect gold-colored platforms. It seems to belong in a science-fiction movie, perhaps a steam-punk cousin of HAL in 2001: A Space Odyssey. But as the makers of that 1968 movie imagined computers the size of a spaceship, this technology would have never crossed their minds – a quantum computer. Read More

  • Building the quantum workforce

    Argonne National Laboratory and Fermilab are part of the Chicago Quantum Exchange (CQE), an intellectual hub for research and development of quantum technology. The Exchange’s faculty has a new project up their sleeves – teaching students in the University of Chicago’s new certificate program for STEM professionals to learn about quantum technologies.
