    First 800 km long segment (Москва-Санкт-Петербург ) of the unique quantum communication line has been completed.

    The whole program foresee the completion of a secure network ,for civil and military purposes, with a length of more than 10000 km.

    FGC UES (Rosseti FGC UES) has started construction of the world's largest high-temperature superconducting power transmission line

    The new energy transit will connect the main power substations of the Central and Admiralteiskiy districts of St. Petersburg, where more than 400 thousand people live. The project has no analogues in Russia and abroad in terms of its length – 2.5 km. The use of a high-temperature superconducting DC cable line (HTSP line) will allow transmitting up to 50 MW of power at an average voltage of 20 kV, minimizing losses, and improving the reliability and quality of power supply to consumers.

    It is based on the development of the "STC Rosseti FGC UES", which the Ministry of Energy of the Russian Federation included in the sectoral national project. The construction of the HTSP line includes several stages: on the territory of the 330 kV "Tsentralnaya" and 110 kV "RP-9" substations, buildings of converter devices will be erected, the line itself will be laid in an open way in a trench underground, and trenchless laying by directional drilling is also provided. To connect the cable sections, special couplings will be used, for which sealed monolithic wells will be installed with the possibility of year-round access for personnel.

    The cost of the project, including the development of a pilot HTSP line and testing at the NTC Rosseti FGC UES own test site, is 3.5 billion rubles. Construction will be completed in 2023.

    The main difference between the HTSP line and existing power lines is the use of a superconducting material, the resistance of which disappears when cooled below 77 K. Due to this, energy losses during transportation are reduced to almost zero. The facility includes a two-circuit cryogenic support system with a length of 5 km. This is also a unique indicator, since nowhere else in the world has a similar cooling system been created yet.

    After the trial operation, the possibility of scaling will be considered. The experience gained will make it possible in the future to create HTS lines for transmission of up to 200-300 MW, while occupying a much smaller territory than similar transmission lines in terms of capacity.

    The main advantage is that in conditions of dense urban and historical development, it is possible to transmit more power without disturbing the landscape. The power transmission density of HTSP is much higher than that of existing technical solutions, and therefore this concept is relevant for dense development of megacities. The technology can also be effective in the construction of ring circuits and power bridges, for the transmission of energy from hydroelectric power plants and nuclear power plants.

    Two cloud platforms for the development of quantum technologies launched in Russia

    TASS, April 27. Lomonosov Moscow State University and the Russian Quantum Center announced the launch of two cloud platforms, one of which will help developers create algorithms for such systems, and the second will enable businesses to solve applied problems using a quantum computer.

    "The MSU platform allows you to run and test various programs designed to work with quantum computers.It will be of interest primarily to students, researchers, and employees of research departments of companies that are engaged in quantum computing, computer science, and programming.In addition to MSU, the Russian Quantum Center also announced the opening of access to its cloud-based quantum computing platform on April 27. The RCC platform will be useful for solving research and business problems, as well as analyzing the economic effect of implementing quantum systems," the press service writes.

    The physical basis of the MSU system is a neutral-atom quantum processor in optical traps and a linear-optical quantum computer developed at the NTI Competence Center. To write the classical part of programs using the platform, users can use the Python programming language. The authors also plan to present several variants of "quantum" languages. At the same time, all platform user data will be stored on servers located in the country.

    The Russian Quantum Center, in turn, has created a platform with an interface that will be understandable to users without a specialized education in the field of quantum technologies. With its help, representatives of companies, for example, will be able to use the resources of a quantum computer to solve problems in the field of finance, logistics, chemical and nuclear industries, and telecommunications.

    For the convenience of client companies from various industries, developers have created a set of ready-made applications for financial optimization, quantum chemistry, bioinformatics, logistics, etc., as well as a set of tools for comparative analysis of algorithms. The number of applications and backends will increase as the project evolves and new strategic partnerships emerge.

    "From the very beginning, our team decided to focus on solving current business problems, as this concept allows us to clearly assess the advantages of quantum computing over traditional ones. We have received applications from academic institutions and business representatives from Russia, France, Germany, Great Britain, Taiwan and China, and are now starting to provide them with access and implement joint projects.»

    Alexey Fedorov

    co-founder of the platform

    "A quantum computer can solve complex computational problems many orders of magnitude faster than modern electronic computers. This technology, which until recently seemed like a fantasy, is rapidly becoming a reality: more and more scientific and engineering teams are showing prototypes of quantum computing devices that have either already surpassed electronic processors, or will overcome this barrier in the near future. Our platform allows you to use these devices without delving into the extremely complex physics on which they are based.»

    Alexander Lvovsky

    co-founder of the platform

    I read the first part and got excited and then read -77K. That is -350C....not exactly practical...

    Its not negative 77 K - the lower bound for Kelvin is 0, hence absolute zero. Its -196 celsius instead. To convert from celsius to kelvin just add 273.

    Liquid nitrogen cooled superconducting transmission lines are the only ones that have been built. High temperature superconductors
    are bitchy, boutique exotics that do not tolerate high current densities. They are great for sci-fi fantasy and levitation stunts, but
    are nearly useless for industrial application.

    Eventually stable room temperature super conductors will be developed. The prize is just too great. Its inevitable. How long that will take? noooooo ideaaaa

    Ahh yes, thx for the correction. I forgot my highschool physics. It makes sense the Kelvin scale was developed just to prevent such miscommunications.

    77K means you can cool it with liquid nitrogen instead of liquid helium like with first generation superconductors.
    That eases handling the cooling a lot. Heck it isn't perfect but it's better.

    Very nice bionics from a Russian company.   You can see a double arm amputee using the replacement arms and hands more
    than just like the old style mechanical hook.   The prosthetics are linked to living nerves in the arms or shoulder and the
    individual retrains to use them.  

    I expect the company to be put under NATzO sanctions any day now because western fcuks will claim that it is linked to
    novichoke and Russian military activity.   After all this is "dual use" tech.   Recall how that rotten koont Albright gleefully
    said how the death of 500,000 Iraqi children was justified because among other things the chlorine used to disinfect
    water could be made into WWI style chemical weapons.   As if mass murder is physically impossible without "weapons of
    mass destruction", aka "weapons of mass distraction" for western sheeple.
