Department of Computer Science
CS researchers have received significant grants in areas such as health informatics, computer vision, artificial intelligence and cybersecurity.
The CQSE is actively engaged in multiple grant-funded projects that are currently underway or have been successfully completed.
September 2015: Proposal, “MRI: Acquisition of cryogen-free low-temperature scanning-probe spectroscopy system for nanophotonic and nanoelectronic device characterization” was funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF). The Principal Investigator is Stefan Strauf and co-PI’s are Eui-Hyeok Yang, Simon Podkolzin, Yuping Huang and Stephanie Lee.
August 2015: Project titled, “Persistent Maritime Quantum Key Distribution” was granted by the Office of Naval Research (ONR) to develop techniques for weather-resistant quantum key distribution. The Principal Investigator is Yuping Huang and co-PI’s are Rainer Martini and Ting Yu.
August 2015: Project titled, “OP: Collaborative Research: Quantum Zeno Photonics on Chip” was funded by the NSF to develop photonic chips for deterministic quantum computing and communications. PI is Yuping Huang and Co-PI is Amy Forster at John Hopkins University.
May 2015: Project titled, “Collaborative Research: Cavity-Enhanced Exciton Emission from Carbon Nanotubes in the Intrinsic Regime” was funded by the NSF. PI is Stefan Strauf and Co-PI is Jim Hone, Columbia University.
March 2015: Project titled, “Quantum Computing and Computational Finance.” The CME Group has provided a grant to identify which computational finance problems are well suited for quantum computers. This consists of matching critical modeling issues such as improved credit rating methodologies and real-time options risk management to appropriate computational finance techniques that are natural fits for the current generation of quantum chips. PI is Rupak Chatterjee.
