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.

Newswise: Walking the wire: Real-time imaging helps reveal active sites of photocatalysts

Walking the wire: Real-time imaging helps reveal active sites of photocatalysts

Washington University in St. Louis

Nanoscale photocatalysts are small, man-made particles that harvest energy from sunlight to produce liquid fuels and other useful chemicals. But even within the same batch, the particles tend to vary widely in size, shape and surface composition. That makes it hard for researchers to tell what’s really doing the work.

Veggie-loving fish could be the new white meat

University of California, Irvine

A secret to survival amid rising global temperatures could be dwelling in the tidepools of the U.S. West Coast. Findings by University of California, Irvine biologists studying the genome of an unusual fish residing in those waters offer new possibilities for humans to obtain dietary protein as climate change imperils traditional sources.

Newswise: U researchers find public safety risks in bail reform

U researchers find public safety risks in bail reform

University of Utah

Discussions of reforming the bail system, which allows defendants to post a monetary bond and leave jail while they await trial, often turn to the question of public safety. Would people out on bail commit additional crimes? The answer, according to two University of Utah professors, appears to be yes.
