SQMS Center

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.
