UMD to Lead $1M NSF Project to Develop a Quantum Network to Interconnect Quantum Computers

“We will leverage a quantum network testbed — of our recently-awarded NSF Engineering Research Center: the “Center for Quantum Networks” led by University of Arizona in partnership with MIT, Harvard, Yale and several other institutions — for rapid prototyping, benchmarking and scaling up trapped-ion-based quantum routers to be built in the UMD-led Convergence Accelerator program,” says Saikat Guha.
