Fermilab scientists are adapting the lab’s cutting-edge accelerator technology for qubits and quantum sensors.

From University of Chicago, May 8, 2018: A number of breakthroughs have made it possible for scientists to encode and manipulate information in quantum systems. Scientists at UChicago’s Institute for Molecular Engineering,which formed a hub with Fermilab and Argonne called the Chicago Quantum Exchange, are fleshing out the fundamental rules of controlling such systems.

The U.S. Department of Energy Office of Nuclear Physics is developing a strategy for Quantum Information Science (QIS) in the context of Nuclear Physics (NP). To facilitate this, Argonne National Laboratory’s Physics Division will host a DOE-supported workshop, Intersections Between Nuclear Physics and Quantum Information (NPQI 2018). All researchers with an interest in exploring synergies between quantum information science and nuclear physics are invited to attend. The workshop will be held Wednesday, March 28, through Friday, March 30, 2018, at… More »
