Transforming how we communicate,
compute, and sense our world
The QuantumX initiative at the University of Washington seeks to facilitate and support activities to accelerate quantum discoveries and technologies.
QuantumX faculty and researchers are exploring the following areas:
Hardware, software, and algorithms to realize solutions to problems intractable on classical computers.
Materials development to enable quantum technologies and the study of materials whose properties emerge from quantum interactions
Quantum Communication and Networks
Hardware, software, and algorithms to realize secure communication protected by the laws of quantum mechanics. The development of quantum networks for scaling both communication and computation systems.
Using quantum coherence and entanglement to achieve new limits in sensing
Using controlled quantum systems to simulate materials from small molecules to solids, with applications ranging from more efficient electronics to clean energy.
Quantum Research at the UW
UW QuantumX is partnering with Microsoft and PNNL to host the Northwest Quantum Nexus Summit on March 18-19. Limited space is still available at the summit, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
A team led by UW Professor Xiaodong Xu has developed a new system to trap individual excitons, a potential breakthrough in development of new quantum technologies. Learn more.
We are excite to announce that Allen School Ph.D. student Ewin Tang has landed a spot on Forbes’ 2019 list of “30 Under 30” in science for developing a method that enables a classical computer to solve the “recommendation problem” in roughly the same time that a quantum computer could — upending one of the […]
