Argonne National Laboratory, University of Chicago announce successful tests on quantum loop — a precursor for the national quantum internet
Argonne National Laboratory

LEMONT, IL – On Wednesday, February 19, 2020 at noon CST, U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Under Secretary for Science Paul M. Dabbar will announce scientists from Argonne National Laboratory and the University of Chicago entangled photons across a 52-mile “quantum loop” in the Chicago suburbs. The quantum loop is a test bed designed to entangle quantum information at distance in real-world conditions. The successful experiment, funded by DOE, is seen as a foundational building block in the development of a quantum internet — potentially a highly secure and far-reaching network of quantum computers and other quantum devices.
