The Center for Quantum Science and Engineering (CQSE) at Stevens Institute of Technology pursues innovative quantum engineering research, development and education including bringing photonic technologies into reality, networking, remote sensing, machine learning, big data processing and quantum computing.


The CQSE focuses on developing and industrializing advanced photonic technologies that will create impact in multiple areas of society, by:

  • catalyze high synergy among researchers from diverse backgrounds to study the fundamental and technological aspects of quantum photonics
  • promote applications of quantum technologies in big data analytics, defense, healthcare, environmental assessment and communications
  • build a quantum-smart campus at Stevens where the next-generation information processing techniques are conceived, demonstrated, tested, and transferred to industry
  • educate the next generation about quantum and photonic technologies

The CQSE will become a vibrant hub for interdisciplinary quantum engineering open to all students, scholars, and faculty.

About the CQSE

The Center for Quantum Science and Engineering takes a cross-discplinary approach to developing quantum computers that satisfy practical criteria. At Stevens, the CQSE conducts research in reduced-dimensional materials, nanophotonics, cybersecurity, quantum control, ultrafast optics and a variety of other applications.

Led by Dr. Yuping Huang, assistant professor of physics and director of the CQSE, more than 40 faculty, postdoctoral and student researchers from ten research groups in five interdisciplinary units at Stevens contribute to significant developments in quantum computing, which include contributions from industrial and academic partners.
