One such example is the patent awarded by Russia to Corning Inc., the American multinational company that specializes in optical physics, from Russia’s Patent Office — Patent No. RU 2744398 C2 — which is titled: “Quantum Memory Systems And Quantum Repeater Systems Containing Optical Apparatuses Made Of Doped Polycrystalline Ceramics And Methods Of Manufacture Thereof.”

“As public and private organizations boost investment funding to prepare for a scalable quantum internet, it is important that we continually share global quantum innovation trends and government policies that will greatly benefit senior leaders and decision makers,” said Maëva Ghonda, Global Quantum Computing Intellectual Property (IP) Expert, Quantum AI Institute Chair and Quantum AI Institute Podcast Host.

“U.S. public policy has begun to move in support of the building blocks of the quantum internet. I look forward to discussing those moves over the last four years, what new public policy efforts might be coming up, and prospects for the emerging private sector,” added Mr. Paul Dabbar, the CEO of Bohr Quantum Technology and Former Under Secretary for Science of the United States Department of Energy.
