Why quantum now
Quantum information science and engineering is at a tipping point. Researchers exploring the farthest edges of classical physics are beginning to tap into the fundamental capabilities of the quantum world to open new frontiers of possibility.
Drawing on quantum entanglement, investigators are poised to drastically improve the acquisition, processing and transmission of information. Advances across quantum science are combining with classical engineering advancement to transform laboratory demonstration into technological reality. This leap from the lab to real-world impact requires an environment that drives fundamental advances, develops engineering and technical expertise, provides enabling infrastructure, cultivates the next generation workforce, and supports integration with the private sector.
QEI is our answer to that call with the specific goal of creating next-generation quantum sensors and sensor networks for real world systems.
