SQMS Center

From Yahoo Notizie (Italy), September 22, 2022: Congratulations to SQMS Center director, Anna Grassellino who received the New Horizon Prize in fundamental physics for the discovery of major improvements in the performance of superconducting radio frequency niobium cavities, with applications ranging from accelerator physics to quantum devices.

From Seneca’s 100 Women to Hear, July 7, 2022: A podcast interview with Fermilab’s Anna Grassellino on leading the team on developing the most powerful quantum computer on earth to hopefully one day answer questions like, “What is the world made of and what are its most fundamental components?”

Scientists at the Fermilab-led SQMS Center investigate qubits at the atomic level to identify sources of various impurities. By having a deeper understanding of how impurities affect how long a qubit can store information, scientists will be able to figure out how to further improve the performance of quantum computers.

For Fermilab, 2021 was a momentous year that included major science results, construction progress, record-setting equipment, and more. Get a quick recap of some 2021 milestones in this video, which features drone and timelapse footage from around the lab.

From Blog Sicilia (Italy), December 15, 2021: From Marsala to Chicago, a young Sicilian among the most important scientists in the world. Fermilab’s Anna Grassellino is a researcher from Marsala chosen by the DOE to lead a project that will build the quantum computer: a revolutionary machine that will lead to a new era of research. In Chicago, she is among the most important scientists in the world.
