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
David Weld, Assistant Professor of Physics from UC Santa Barbara, will give a talk on Thursday, October 17, 2019 at 12:30pm.
Professor of Physics Edwin Barnes will be presenting a talk entitled “Many-body effects, topological surface states, and the chiral anomaly in Dirac-Weyl semimetals” on August 28th.
QuantumX awarded five undergraduate and masters students grants to fabricate nanoscale quantum devices at the Washington Nanofabrication Facility.
