Scientists are creating a network in the Chicago area that taps the principles of quantum physics to send information. Such a link could one day form the basis for a truly secure network, which would have wide-ranging impact on communications, computing and national security. Stretching between Argonne and Fermi national laboratories, the connection will "teleport" information across 30 miles and is expected to be among the longest in the world to send secure information using quantum physics.
