ORNL, LANL again leverage EPB network to test quantum-based technologies

Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) reports that its researchers teamed-up with scientists from Los Alamos National Laboratory in a demonstration that leveraged EPB’s fiber optic network in Chattanooga.

According to this news release from ORNL, the joint laboratory team isolated portion of the EPB network for experiments with quantum-based technologies that could improve the cybersecurity, longevity and efficiency of the nation’s power grid. Among other successes, the researchers drastically increased the range that these resources can cover in collaboration with their new industry partner, Qubitekk.
