Title: Quantum Link: Building the U.S. Quantum Superhighway

Abstract

The Quantum Link is an ambitious project by Argonne, Fermilab and the University of Chicago to bring the property of entanglement into the real world. Entangling objects 30 miles apart, between Argonne and Fermi, the Quantum Link seeks to answer questions like, “What is the meaning of entanglement?” and “Can you use entangled states, separated 30 miles apart, as a type of superhighway to transfer information from one point to the other?” Using an optical fiber network built 12 years ago by the state of Illinois to link hi-speed data centers, the project gives researchers a real-world view of what a quantum network might look like.
