DOE Announces $24 Million for Research on Quantum Networks

(August 31, 2023) On August 29, 2023, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced $24 million in funding for three collaborative projects in quantum network research.

Scientific research infrastructure linked with quantum networks is needed to realize distributed quantum computers. These quantum computers could simulate complex scientific processes inaccessible to computational platforms of today, integrate quantum sensors that promise measurements of unprecedented precision, and address previously inaccessible scientific questions of importance.

The list of projects and more information can be found on the Advanced Scientific Computing Research program homepage.
