Key Focus

  • Both superposition and entanglement are fragile states most easily maintained at frigid temperatures in machines kept perfectly isolated from the chaos of the outside world. And as quantum computer scientists search for ways to extend their control over greater numbers of finicky particles, quantum internet researchers are developing the technologies required to link those collections of particles together.

  • Trump betting millions to lay the groundwork for quantum internet in the US
    PUBLISHED MON, APR 27 20209:01 EDTUPDATED 10 administration's 2021 budget request contains $237 million in funding to support quantum information research.
    Quantum information science harnesses the behavior of particles to make calculations in fundamentally new ways.
    Prototype networks exist in New York and Chicago, and researchers are developing the new technologies needed to create longer links.
    In the 1960s the U.S. government funded a series of experiments developing techniques to shuttle information from one computer to another.
