Atoms in a quantum state The Interdisciplinary Research Themes (IRTs) were initiated by the College of Engineering & Applied Sciences to build on our college and campus strengths, prepare for future research opportuntiies, and accelerate our positive impacts to our state and nation over the next four years under internal college funding. The Quantum Integrated Sensor System (QISS) IRT was launched in January 2018 with the general goal of translating quantum technologies, in particular quantum sensors, towards practical applications. In January 2019, the QISS IRT merged into the CUbit Quantum Initiative, which will advance science and engineering efforts in quantum at the campus level. With that change, CEAS Associate Professor Juliet Gopinath has transitioned from her role as QISS IRT director to an associate director position for CUBit.
