Purdue Engineers Developing Switch for Quantum Internet

 Purdue University says engineers there have made progress on a new switch designed to enable a quantum internet supporting quantum computers of the future. The method, demonstrated in a paper published in Optica, could help lay the groundwork for large numbers of quantum computers, quantum sensors and other quantum technology going online and communicating with each […]

DOE Extending Quantum Networks for Long Distance Entanglement

Scientists from Brookhaven National Laboratory, Stony Brook University, and DOE’s Energy Sciences Network (ESnet) are collaborating on an experiment that puts U.S. quantum networking research on the international map. Researchers have built a quantum network testbed that connects several buildings on the Brookhaven Lab campus using unique portable quantum entanglement sources and an existing DOE ESnet communications fiber network—a significant step in building a large-scale quantum network that can transmit information over long distances.
